Iranian Webmasters Ask Government to Start Providing Cheap Internet Services
Currently, Iran is among the countries with worst Internet services in the world. IT experts have previously criticized the Iranian government for providing expensive and low-quality Internet services for citizens. Accordingly, the quality of Internet services in Iran is not comparable with the similar DSL services in Asian and European countries.
During a meeting with Iran’s IT Minister, Mohammad Hassan Nami, Iranian webmasters have urged the government to start offering high quality and cheap Internet services to local clients.
“At the being time, online businesses can play important role in Iran’s economy. However, the government should resolve some problems with regard to Internet services. A large number of Internet users in Iran are not satisfied with the quality of their accesses. By providing people with better Internet services, more clients will prefer to choose online websites for shopping and their other activities.” Marjan Alipour, an Iranian webmaster, told the Herald Boy on Monday.
She went on to mention that Iran has more Internet clients in compare to other countries in the Middle East region. “Although Iran has more Internet clients, the conditions of start-ups and online businesses are not satisfactory. The government should support small to medium businesses in the hope of reinforcing country’s economy.”
Marjan Alipour also encouraged Iranian government to ease its Internet filtering system. “Unfortunately, a large number of websites are blocked in Iran without any reason. It is better if the government change its policies on this subject.
The Science and Information Ministry of Iran announced on January that Islamic Republic has more than 45 million active Internet clients.
