Russia has successfully tested a country-wide alternative to the global internet, its government has announced.

Details of what the test involved were vague but, according to the Ministry of Communications, ordinary users did not notice any changes.

The results will now be presented to President Putin.

Experts remain concerned about the trend for some countries to dismantle the internet.

If they think they have the ability to cut their citizen's connectivity from the world, they are mistaken. There is always a way to connect to the outside internet unless they pull the plug on damn near everything like North Korea does. Even then, its possible. Packet radio for instance and they can't jam that entire spectrum.
