We are hearing reports across the web and over Twitter that the last ISP in Egypt, the Noor Group, who was not affected by the previous shutdown, has been taken offline. The closure of Noor means that there is no longer any Internet access in Egypt.

Noor was exempt from the shutdown due to its connection to the Egyptian Stock Exchange. However, as the protests continue, the stock exchange has been closed. This leaves all ISPs shut down across Egypt, though we are hearing conflicting reports that the National Technology Group (NTG) in Egypt remains online or offline. NTG has clients in the aviation, banking and financial sectors.

Developing story, we will publish other reports as we get them.

Thanks for coming onboard!
We're excited to have you.
