Iran bans fast internet to cut west's influence

Damn damn! What someone would decided to go backward ? shouldn't it be forward? for god sake what's wrong in getting exposed to a very civilized cultural ? and if Iranian consider it as opponent cultural then open your mind and learn from it I'm sure there are many many things one can learn from that cultural.


Guardian - In a blow to the country's estimated 5 million internet users, service providers have been told to restrict online speeds to 128 kilobytes a second and been forbidden from offering fast broadband packages. The move by Iran's telecommunications regulator will make it more difficult to download foreign music, films and television programmes, which the authorities blame for undermining Islamic culture among the younger generation. It will also impede efforts by political opposition groups to organise by uploading information on to the net.

Well, not to tease you guys at Iran's telecommunications regulator but this wont make things harder at all, people can schedule their download manager to download stuff while sleeping and listen or watch it later, If you feel weak or having weak society that easy to be changed then you start the change and help them to be better, give them the power instead of letting someone else do it.

  1. While this is completely false info, I'd like you to think again, who would do such a thing? Lack of infrastructure, low budget at the telecoms authorities and growth of internet usage is blowing the bandwidth, that's what's up. The rest are just political hits and cultural insults. Imagine a country with 75+ million population that recently started using the Internet, how would the usage grow in such a third-world country? And that with all the sanctions? I find it really lame to think about it or even believe it.

  2. dotone: "blowing the bandwidth, that’s what’s up"

    Sounds like nonsense to me. Unless you can cite some evidence that this is typical of "third world countries" behaviors regarding broadband.

    "political hits and cultural insults" - now that sounds more like a reason. But ask yourself: what type of a country would feel vulnerable to such hits and insults? Let me suggest: only a country seeking to oppress its people. If you disagree, again, cite the evidence. Who else is doing this?

    We need to oppose this stuff, like jad does, not make excuses for it.

  3. dotone,
    In what term you were referring to Iran as Third-World country ? in term of available technologies or Freedom of speech ?

    Jordan is a 15th World country compared to Iran in term of national income but we are First World country in term of technology and freedom of speech.

    What you are saying is like they have limited bandwidth and now they restrict the speed just to share it with more people ? this doesn't make sense at all dude, Companies should celebrate for the users base growth

    But to be fair if this decision was made by the privatized companies then we would understand that it's about the infrastructure or because it's a third world country but since this decision was made by the Iran's telecommunications regulator then it was political side effect.

  4. Dick and Jad,

    I don't know why you find that lack of bandwidth and infrustructure are not problems and you guys actually called it nonsense. OK, I'm shocked by your sayings.

    Here's another proof, in this week's ITWeekly magazine they actually interviewed an ISP's CEO and the answer was... tada.. the bandwidth & infrustructure problem as follows:


    The letter did not provide any explanation for the ban on higher internet speeds but it has been widely interpreted as
    a move by the government to restrict the influence of Western culture in Iran and has attracted criticism from MPs and academics.

    However, Naderpour said he believed the ban was more likely due to infrastructure problems than to political reasons.


    And here is the link: http://www.itp.net/news/details.php?id=22560

    The difference that you guys don't see is that Iran is a huge country! Unlike Jordan that populates around 5.5 Millions, Iran is an 80+ Million populated country! No comparison.

  5. Dotone,
    I don't want to sound like anti-irani but don't you think that the lack of bandwidth and infrastructure because of political reasons ?

    This is exactly what's happening in Jordan, JTC giving money to government so they monopolize the market and ISP can't get bandwidth from anywhere but from JTC

    On the other hand Iranie's ISP aren't serving the 70 million but only %10 percent at least according to CIA world fact book

    In conclusion, I'd hate it to see Irani restricting Internet speed for political reasons because it should be there power not their weak point

    and I'd hate it to see such developed country having problem in serving %10 percent of country's population .

    I'm not anti Irani, I have nothing against them I'm just very pro of opening our minds and cultural because we really need it in Middle east.
