ICT Minister Mohammad Javad Azari-Jahromi took a one-day trip to the northern province of Gilan on Friday to inaugurate several ICT projects and discuss the future of the administration’s long-awaited e-government push.
Financed by a 3.5-trillion-rial ($83.33 million) state investment, the projects inaugurated by the minister included the expansion of the data delivery network and fiber-optic network in the province and the upgrade of the infrastructure employed by the Telecommunication Company of Iran in the province. Projects were also initiated so as to enhance the mobile network services offered in the region. 
Furthermore, in collaboration with the Communication Infrastructure Company of Iran, the ministry is poised to increase Gilan’s collective bandwidth, which entails improvements in end user access to the Internet both in terms of enhanced connectivity and speed and also decreased latency.
Moreover, the minister launched several other ICT-related projects with 2.56 trillion rials ($60.9 million) of funding for the current year.
