Where does the internet go at the zombie apocalypse?

So the zombie apocalypse is there. What started as one slow walking dead guy has turned into a global outbreak. The military that can destroy an entire country from around the globe is no match for an army of shambling corpses. Professional trained soldiers armed to the teeth are being run down by zombies, unlike the pregnant woman, senior citizen and little kid and his dog, because a pocket knife and a tanktop is so much more effective than an m16 and kevlar when the apocalypse is there.

But the biggest question is, who is the asshole that shuts down the internet? I always thought the internet was a massive amount of servers, you can't just shut it down. But in the zombie apocalypse it's always down. Either the zombies decided to push the off switch or the last remaining employee thought it would save electricity and turned off cyberspace. You'd think internet and telecommunication in general wouldn't need someone to start it everyday. It's just there. But nobody ever uses phones or goes online to see the million tutorials how to kill zombies, because the dude in charge of starting the internet is dead.

And it's not that zombies transmit some sort of EMP, because every other electrical device works. Lights, camera's, doors, refrigerators, battery chargers for the walkie talkies. Even computers will work, but they don't have a connection to the internet. That's just gone. Listen to a looped message on the radio instead.

The internet would be brought down due to all the shallow wankers posting about it on facebook and tweeting a load of shite.

By the time the zombie apocalypse gets here, computers - and by some extent, the internet - will develop a consciousness of its own so it will struggle to survive and stay online as best it can.

As zombies over run everything the power is eventually going to go out due to a variety of factors.
In places with lines above ground there will be car crashes that take them out, transformers will explode due to surges and repair staff wont be able to get to them due to zombies.
Also, the employees at power plants who keep the place running will eventually stop going into work for the same reason, those pesky zombies keep eating them when they try to get to work and those trapped in the power plants will eventually run out of food (that includes those who resort to cannibalism).
When there is no power to run the servers, or to power the devices we use to access those servers, then there will be no internet.
