Fars News Agency, 3 Sept 2012: "Iran announced that it has already started implementing the first phase of a national internet network. 'So far, the first phase of the National Information Network that is partitioning the network has been put into action in 28 provinces,' Iranian Minister of Communication and Information Technology Reza Taqipour said, adding the very phase will be implemented in two remaining provinces by mid September. 'After the implementation of the first phase of the National Information Network, we will be linked to an independent internet network and the national information network,' the minister stated, adding that an independent network doesn't mean a lack of access to the worldwide web. ... Addressing a gathering of Iranian university lectures and industrial managers at the time, Taqipour said the worldwide web is not a 'reliable' network specially in times of crisis. 'Internet should not be in the hands of one or two specific countries,' the minister noted, adding that internet is now considered to be a powerful media in economic as well as security and social fields. The minister pointed to Iran's plan to launch a national internet network, stating that the network will turn threats into opportunities."
Trend News Agency, 3 Sept 2012: "According to the ITU (International Telecommunication Union) standard, which says, the minimum high-speed internet connection is measured at 1,5 Mbit/s, very few of Iranians have that kind of speed, IRNA reported. ... According to Professor of Iranian University of Science and Technology Ali Akbar Jalili, if considering the ITU standard, less than 1 percent of Iranians have 1,5 Mbit/s or more of internet speed."
