Despite the fact, it is quite obvious the US has this "service" in place.
In nations such as Syria, Egypt, Tunisia just to name a few.
Clearly the US is presently knee deep in government destabilization in the already mentioned nations and others.
That said let's read the information as put out by the "free western" media
The 'free media' actually being the completely subservient and compliant media!
Compliance and subservience being the "realities" of western democratic media
US seeks shadow internet and mobile networks in "repressive countries"
Oh and here is a familiar name!
"Freedom House, an organization in Washington, released a “Freedom on the Net” report in April. The group studied thirty-seven countries. It found that twenty-three of them had arrested Internet users for content posted online. Nineteen of the countries at least partially controlled international connections to the Internet. And at least twelve had interfered with networks, listened in on people’s communications or taken down websites."
Freedom House. A name Orwell would have loved. Freedom House means Oppression House.
Oppression brought to your country by the US military and it's corporate bosses..

Quite obviously this is a map with an agenda. Australia doesn't filter the net?
Of course it does! It filters on par with China. So why the rating of "no evidence" of filtering?
How about Obama's kill switch? Along with all the filtering Google does? Isn't that censorship?
That however doesn't matter in this map of "Freedom on the Internet"
Let's read some more about the Shadow Internet- U.S. Underwrites Internet Detour Around Censors (this is a very long article, worth reading entirely, so click on the link)
The Obama administration is leading a global effort to deploy “shadow” Internet and mobile phone systems that dissidents (bought and paid for) can use to undermine repressive (unacceptable to the west)governments that seek to silence them by censoring or shutting down telecommunications networks.
Given the fact that western governments are quite repressive. They just use different tools...
The effort includes secretive projects to create independent cellphone networks inside foreign countries. as well as one operation out of a spy novel in a fifth-floor shop on L Street in Washington, where a group of young entrepreneurs who look as if they could be in a garage band are fitting deceptively innocent-looking hardware into a prototype “Internet in a suitcase.”
Financed with a $2 million State Department grant, the suitcase could be secreted across a border and quickly set up to allow wireless communication over a wide area with a link to the global Internet.
The American effort, revealed in dozens of interviews, planning documents and classified diplomatic cables obtained by The New York Times, ranges in scale, cost and sophistication.
This part below is really interesting and curious and made me go AHA!
Some projects involve technology that the United States is developing; others pull together tools that have already been created by hackers in a so-called liberation-technology movement sweeping the globe.This technology was created by hackers in the so called "liberation technology movement"?
Wikileaks and all the other so called "hackers" and all their so called hacks?
Have the hacks been intentional?
Allowing the so called hackers a means to work out new technologies?
I am going to answer that question with a big, bold YES.
A yes indeed, most definitely!
Amazing how all the pieces of the puzzle fall into place?
The State Department, for example, is financing the creation of stealth wireless networks that would enable activists to communicate outside the reach of governments in countries like Iran, Syria and Libya, according to participants in the projects.
The effort has picked up momentum since the government of President Hosni Mubarak shut down the Egyptian Internet
If we are reading about this technology, it is a done deal. Just looking at the list of countries named, is like reading a shopping list of countries on the destabalization/overthrow must buy list.
The Voice of Russia asks - Is US “shadow” Internet a tool for spooks?
Do we breath air?
This is obviously a tool for spooks, destabilizers and those with agendas.
The Russian Foreign Ministry is deeply concerned, its commissioner for human rights, democracy and the rule of law Konstantin Dolgov said. If there is substance behind this information, he pointed out, a situation may be created that will run counter to the basic internationally accepted principles of sovereignty and territorial integrity, the supremacy of law, and the observance of human rights and democratic standards worldwide.
Among other things, the creation of a shadow Internet system appears as an attempt to initiate and control color revolutions in other countries, business intelligence and economic security expert Alexander Mitrofanov said in an interview with the Voice of Russia. According to him, this is an instrument to be widely used by the American secret services. Especially given that a precedent already exists: the Syrian hysteria is suggested to have been fueled by an American IT specialist, who allegedly saw democracy being suppressed in Damascus, Alexander Mitrofanov said.
What it is not, is a tool for freedom, human rights or a free press.
As the author of this piece put's it-
This creation of a “shadow” internet only fuels the notion that the US is turning the Internet into a new battleground.
