Iran to block entire internet

Iran to block the entire internet, replacing it with "clean" intranet - TechSpot News


Quoting 
Iran looks set to permanently deny the World Wide Web to millions of the country's residents, which will include popular social networking sites as well as email services from the likes of Google, according to a report by the International Business Times, whose sources claim Iran plans to establish their own intranet within the next five months.

Iranian minister for Information and Communications, Reza Taghipour, released a statement at the beginning of the month confirming the setting up of a national intranet which would include the blockage of all services provided by Google, Yahoo and Hotmail as they push closer to achieving a "clean internet."

The plan consists of two main parts, with the first phase due to start in May, in which Google, Hotmail and Yahoo services will be blocked and replaced by Iran Mail and Iran Search Engine products. During and after the completion of the first phase it is believed that most websites will still be accessible, with the exception of the aforementioned sites.

Those wishing to have emails will be required to register for an Iran Mail ID, a registration procedure the country has already put in place, in which the government mandates authentic personal information in order to match the details to a real person. Only once the personal information has been verified with government records of the individual will the registration be approved.

Phase two of the national intranet project, due for completion by August will see the remainder of the internet completely denied to Iranian users. "All Internet Service Providers (ISP) should only present National Internet by August," said Taghipour.

That said, the AFP this morning released a statement from Iranian officials responding to the news coverage surrounding the April 1 statement by Taghipour, saying the publication was a hoax. "The report is in no way confirmed by the ministry" and is "completely baseless," the ministry statement said.

The ministry responded to the false report saying, "the propaganda wing of the West and providing its hostile media with a pretext emanating from a baseless claim."

Interestingly, officials did say they have plans to build a "national information network" that would function as a intranet for the country's internet users. No information was provided about whether the internet would exist alongside it, or be blocked as the original report suggests, but it sounds eerily close to the original report by the minister for Information and Communications.

2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.

I find that rather ironic as Iran, despite its attitudes, has been surprisingly open in lot of ways.

Everyone in power sees it as a threat now and will move to control/filter it everywhere eventually, even here.

Iran Filtering system is ranked #1 in the world. any interne speed above 256kbps is forbidden for individuals and
is only limited to companies.that 256kbps internet bandwidth is shared between 8-10 persons in ISP !!
so what do i do as an iranian trader ? i am using ADSL+2 WIRELESS(wimax inernet) +3G and i dispatch all of those four connections and make a unique connection, then i use it to connect to a VPS.
trading from Iran is horrible !!

I could not work/live under such conditions. Freedom is not free and it has been well paid for. I hope you seek/find improvement.

i am not "living" here .i am just pretend to live.90 % of my trading pressure is due to internet and connectivity issues
and concerning about how to transfer money due to sanctions.i have the least stress about trading itself.
we can travel only to a limited countries without visa and can not have master cards / wire transfer...
due to the sanctions we can not even buy gold (for example golden ring !! ) in nearby countries like dubai... because it violates sanctions !
everything here is stupid.
