The Iranian government measures for developing ICT infrastructure in underdeveloped areas have provided 35,519 villages, accounting for 90% of the total, with access to internet services through the National Information Network.
According to the Communications Regulatory Authority, most Iranian villages were totally deprived of internet connections in 2013 when President Hassan Rouhani began his first tenure, but gradually increased to 18,000 in 2017, IRNA reported.
