Dont really care to post my full opinion as that would take to long, it would be read unclearly, and potential agruments over mis understandings would start.

Simple version:
I dont belive this could happen. If it did, i would resort to an overseas satalite internet provider. I would choose one in a well defended country like russia, india, australia, canada, UK

Really? Is this really the end of the world? Its just a government trying to avoid the possibility of a cyberattack upon its infrastructure. Similar tactics have been used by Egypt and Libya, but I wouldn't worry too much about it.

Yeah, those tactics are pretty much useless. People used other methods to send pictures and videos to news outlets, hell, some even managed to get internet access despite the blackout.

Besides, if you have a few million pissed off dudes screaming for the government's blood, the government won't exactly shut them up by starting an internet blackout.
