Ghanbari’s comments come after several local and foreign firms signed up to develop Iran’s national fiber optic network in recent weeks.
TCI joined hands with three foreign firms — Huawei and Fiber Home from China and Finland’s Nokia — to expand its fiber optic network and launch Fiber to the Home (FTTH) services in Iran.
Meanwhile, on May 9, MTN said that it had agreed to invest an initial $300 million in fixed broadband provider Iranian Net and lend the company $450 million, according to local technology news agency CITNA.

The long-awaited investment will give the South African firm a 49% stake in the company.
