S’pore to turn off Internet in rest of the country by June 2017

Posted on 08 June 2016

Good luck and goodnight.


Singaporeans from all walks of life, who will soon perish because they cannot get online, will have one year left to use the Internet in Singapore.

This after Singapore has pledged to turn off the Internet country-wide by June 2017 as it has been decreed that all public servants will not be able to go online using government-issued computers from May next year.

One Singaporean, Boh Dian Nao, said she approves of the authorities stance that the Internet can cause data leaks: “It is no longer safe to keep Singapore’s physical borders secure. We need to lock down digital ones as well to ensure we do not have our secrets stolen.”

Other locals said they will cherish their Internet connection for the next one year and then decide if life is worth the living once it has been taken from them.

Another local, Tiaolao Zi Sah, said: “It is after all a good thing for Singapore to go back to the pre-Internet era.”

“That was a time we frequently look back on thinking how nice and quaint our country was.”

“No Internet, not many foreigners and with a two million population.”

“At least we get to have one of those three things back.”
