After five days without internet—following the Egyptian government’s request to ISPs to shut down service after political protests—80,000,000 people are back online, accessing news, Facebooks and Twitter.

At Twitter you’ll see Egyptians have their voice back—and don’t have to use Google and Twitter’s voicemail workaround. According to ComputerWorld, two of the largest ISPs—Vodafone Egypt and Etisalat—switched service back on at 9.30am local time today.

While internet may have been restored, the political situation is still dire. Over in Cairo’s Tahrir Square, thousands of people are still protesting against President Hosni Mubarak’s reign, according to The Guardian.
