/24-7PressRelease/ - NEW DELHI, INDIA, November 28, 2006 - Government of Iran is limiting the download speeds of Internet to keep its younger generation away from outside influences that can undermine its Islamic culture. The service providers in the country have been instructed to restrict download speed to 128 Kbps. It will make the download of foreign music and video from Internet difficult.
Probably, upload speeds have also been restricted but the figures are not out yet. Restrictions on upload capacity will bother those groups and organizations most who want to oppose the government’s move as it will become difficult for them to put their views onto the site. Limitation on the speed of Internet is an aftermath of a clampdown on illicit satellite dishes that were used by Millions of Iranians to watch western programmes on TV. In last some months, thousands of satellite dishes have been nabbed. The experts wonder on government’s belief that it is doing right by cutting off its natives from outside world.
