Hi Alan

The fact remains that running any sort of Internet business will always
require the local country's regulations of some sort which means the power
to regulate the cyber space remains with the government.

Meanwhile, the Internet has been restored in Cameroon as many of you might
be aware...... and the catch in that article is that the Government
reserves the right to use any measures in the future to avoid the internet
from causing or disrupting public disorder.
