Today I want told you a story about iranian Internet .
In the first years we had a good chance that Internet publicize in years of presidency of a reformist president ,so I think at least there was thoughts and visions about benefits of this 21st century Phenomenon . so they are trying to developed it ,in the first years there were filtered only erotic and may some radical political sites.but when Internet Generalized more among people,some narrow minded persons in some part of regime in Iran ask they children to what is "this Internet"?! their children show them yahoo.com and they saw a woman without a a scarf!!!!!!! in an advertisement .
so because they have more power than government they force them to filter more sites.
four years passed and Mr Ahmadinejad elected as president .I remembered when asked him "there is a rumor that you will ban Internet when you elected" .he sneer and told "these are only lies of my enemy .my children and my wife use Internet as source for their scientific research!" Did he lie?
5 month later there was more strict filter (American filter ) ,they even filtered sites like BBC .they also presented a new plan for national Internet ,and that time we found a bad smell , smell of lies and Liquidation of Internet and we found they are against any sharing .they only wanna a sound in society .
and today after 15 month after election their is a confidential letter to all companies which provide ADSL line to iranian .the letter told them they have not no any right to give more than 128 k ADSL line to their costumers .
when we asked them why a restriction of speed ? they told people didn't need more speed ,we thought this limit of speed is enough for you . and when asked them what about e-learning or -banking and etc.
they answered :no problem we provide such service by our national network.
At last a quote from Ministry of communication(link is Persian): in the west they have a reverse manner in filtering in compression with us; they filtered ideological contents epically context who belong to Moslems and Islam but in Iran we only !!!!!! filtered erotic and violence contents!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am really frightend aboutmy iran's feuture.
