<nettime> US shuts down Yugoslav Internet - confirmed!

Unfortunately it seams that Loral Orion will have to close down all
satellite connections to Yugoslavia. Mr. Laban who is representative for
Loral Orion communication in Yugoslavia said that Loral Orion informed him
about that action. For now, ISPs which are connected through LoralOrion
are working, but it is just a matter of time. 

Strange enough the measure will affect not only ISPs in Serbia but also
Montenegrian ones. Overall effect will be that two closest ISP to regime
(ptt.yu and eunet.yu) that operate through ground lines will continue
operating, but satellite providers - who also close to the regime, but at
least try to maintain some image of independence - will be closed down.
