Under low constant-voltage conditions, individual tunneling barriers are shown to be completely switched off for tunneling conduction. These barriers appear to be in the current-leading dead ends or in the "singly connectedlike" junctions of the percolation backbone. The observed global effect under these conditions is a result of uncorrelated opening and closing of these barriers.
