Ethiopia, located in the Horn of Africa, shut off internet access to all of its citizens to prevent students participating in the nation's 10th grade examinations from leaking exam papers online, according to the Guardian.
The blackout began around 9 p.m. EST on Tuesday. By Wednesday afternoon, internet access remained restricted.
Google's transparency report also confirmed a plummeting site traffic.
This isn't the first time the country of about 102 million cut internet access to its residents. Last year, activists leaked the papers for the 12th grade national exams.
It appears that Ethiopia has restricted internet access this year as a preventative measure.
