Fiber Optic Network Sees 19% Growth

During the last four years, Iran’s fiber optic network has grown 19% with access to high-speed Internet increasing 565%, ISNA reported.  In addition, the number of villages with Internet access has doubled in the same period thanks to the fast roll out of ADSL and third and fourth generation Internet connections. Since President Hassan Rouhani took office in 2013 his administration has invested heavily in the ICT sector. Last May, the Vice Presidency for Communications Infrastructure had said about 80% of Iranian households now have access to ADSL broadband Internet, with a growing share getting access to speeds of 20 megabits per second (Mbs). Iran’s fiber optic networks length stands at 61,355 kilometers nationwide. In the last year of the previous Mahmoud Ahmadinejad administration, the length was 51,497 km, according to official statistics.
