Ethiopia restores Internet connectivity after three week outage

According to a news report, full Internet access has been restored in Ethiopia after three weeks of Internet shutdown in the country. The recent Internet blackout which was justified by authorities as due to threat to national security concerns has been widely criticised by citizens and people around the world as having no legal basis at all. The Internet monitoring organisation, Netblocks in a tweet post showed that it had clocked a total Internet downtime of  23 days (552 hours) with the latest real-time data showing that much of the country and cellular network are now back online.
