A is better than E. However in A the "for three years" should be rearranged I feel.

Between A and B, (B) seems to place "for the next three years" in a less confusing position.

OA please.

I think "forbid to" is better idiom.
B and C are very close.

I would go with C.

C because the three years has to be next to the government forbidding.. A sounds like for three years consumers to be linked to internet..
