Blogspot Unblocked! (again)

(May 29th, 2006 – 12:30) Through several credible sources (bloggers in Pakistan), we are able to confirm that the blanket blogspot.com domain ban has been lifted and the blogspot blogs are accessible for the internet audience in Pakistan.

We do not currently know if the lifting of this ban is temporary, as we have previously experienced the lifting of the blogspot ban which turned out to be rather short lived. No official word has been issued by the concerned authorities (as yet) regarding this current move. We, along with all Pakistani (and International) bloggers and internet free speech supporters hope that this current lifting of the blogspot.com ban turns out to be permanent.
