The Iranian government is moving ahead with a motion to lease state-owned dark fiber to the private sector to expand the national communications network.
As per the directive published on Communications Regulatory Authority of Iran’s website Cra.ir, all licensed telecom operators can file a leasing request with the state-owned Telecommunications Infrastructure Company that owns the country’s fiber-optic network.
