Shutting Down the Internet Isn't as Easy as Donald Trump Thinks

What it would take to shut down "areas" of the Internet.

The move left "virtually all of Egypt's Internet addresses" unreachable for people outside of the country and people in Egypt cut off from the Internet, so Trump's plan to cut off the Internet is possible, but cutting off all of those BGP routes ISIS is using in the Middle East to access the Internet would be more of a challenge, experts said.

So while it is possible to shut down parts of the Internet, it's likely a computer savvy member of ISIS would be able to find another way to get online.
