√ʀ Countries have two basic technical methods of controlling the flow of information over the internet:
1. First, they claim legal jurisdiction over information stored on servers within their own borders.
2. Second, they can read or block traffic moving through the choke-points where internet cables cross the border. Undersea cables bring the internet to the UAE at only two locations, and both of the country’s internet-service providers comply enthusiastically with an internet access-management policy, which means that the country can control whatever data reside within or arrive at its border.
