Iran studying 3G and beyond

15 Mar 2007

The Iranian government has begun a study into the future of 3G and 4G mobile services in the country. The state’s Islamic Majlis Research Centre is undertaking research into consumer demand and technical feasibility following a request from the head of parliament’s Telecom Commission, Ramezan-Ali Sadeqzadeh. Taliya News quotes the research centre’s initial report, which states: ‘Some countries that have been the initiators of this technology have very valuable information in the field and it must be surveyed why they made huge investments based on vast scale surveys that led to adopting of the decision.’ Cellular use is growing quickly in Iran, but mobile data services are still in their infancy, with the country only just seeing the launch of the first GPRS-enabled networks.
