From a post at the Egypt Independent February 14, 2013
Internet technology experts recently told Egypt Independent that enforcing the ban would be costly and difficult.
Egypt doesn’t need “costly and difficult”, and c’mon, wiping the entire connected Egyptian population’s caches and connections is basically impossible, even for the wannabe al-powerful dogmacrats of the Brotherhood.
Egypt’s National Telecom Regulatory Authority (NTRA), that would be tasked with immediately achieving the impossible, is said to be appealing the ban.
The Guardian also has more details on the players and issues at play, including names.
