Thought it might be interesting for you: Iranian governemmt has sent a letter to all ADSL providers in Iran, to limit access of their users to bandwidth above 128kbps. Before this, many people used ADSL connections ranging from 64kbps to 2.0mbps.Update: more in this wire service report: Link.
The market was growing rapidly, and the current change has put ADSL providers in a tough siuation. Let alone poor users who have lost some basic access to this (semi-)free media.
As you know, filtering internet resources using censoring software like your favorite(!) SmartFilter and some in-house solutions is common practice in Iran. Apparently internet is one of the bad bad things which is not favored by IRI government.This is contrary to what I observed in the previous president's trend.
Since none of the news agencies in Iran has published the english version of this news yet, I have to refer to this only: Link.
