Seven Iranian cities to get FTTx networks

23 Jun 2015

Iranian internet service provider (ISP) Iranian Net Company is to deploy fibre-optic FTTx broadband networks in seven of the country’s largest cities, offering download speeds of up to 20Mbps. Services will be available in Tehran, Isfahan, Karaj, Shiraz, Tabriz, Mashhad and Qom, with 500,000 access ports being deployed, Cihan news agency reports. The project will be carried out over two years. Last September the Iranian government lifted speed restrictions on home internet services, removing the 128kbps cap.
