SkyVPN, a California based VPN service provider serving over twenty million users globally, has announced their unconditional support for the people of Sudan and vowed to stand by them in the present crisis situation, as the nation continues to reel under the effects of an internet blackout that has already completed five weeks.
The internet blackout in Sudan has already attracted the attention of the global media. The country's former President Omar al-Bashir was toppled in April after months of protest. However, the protestors continued their demonstrations, demanding a civilian-led government as a replacement for the Transitional Military Council (TMC). In the aftermath of the destruction of a protestor camp, all mobile access to the internet was cut on June 3. Amidst reports of rapes, killings, and abuses, landline access was also shut down a week later.

An internet blackout refers to a situation when a country's access to the internet is completely denied. In most cases, this happens because of the authorities turning off the access with the intention of restricting the flow of information to the outer world. In countries like Sudan where the traditional media is closely controlled by the authorities, unrestricted flow of information via the internet is often considered to be a threat.
In today's internet dependent lifestyle, the effects of an internet blackout on common people can be extremely devastating. The decision of the Sudanese authorities to block internet for such a long time has been questioned by the internet users all over the country. The hashtag #blueforSudan has been trending internationally on Twitter as people seek to raise broader awareness of the situation in the country.
One of the ways to overcome internet access related restrictions is to use a virtual private network (VPN) that masks the location of the user. However, during total blackout, this is of little help because there is no internet.
