Internet speed in Iran & World

In the recent days, the Mullahs are trying to change their filtering system, and the internet speed in Iran is really horrible. The new Mullah filtering system is still new. Not enough data is available. Some people said they try to upgrade their Nokia-Siemens system, and some others said that they try to test a new Chinese system. But their plan and goal is clear: They try to have more control over HTTPS protocol. As we said before, The regime makes use of DPI technology, i.e. Deep Packet Inspection, traffic analysis, eavesdropping (by fake digital certificates, etc), etc to track and trace the users and their activities. And Tor project is really unsafe in Iran . The regime tries to have more control over Tor, VPN, and other encrypted connections. Of course, the new change in the Mullah filtering system is a clear sign of their failure. They have not been able to control more than 40 million internet users in Iran, even by spending multi billions dollar on their filtering system. In addition to using the filtering system, the Mullahs tries to reduce the Internet speed. They have issued an order forbidding ISPs from providing Internet connectivity to homes and public access points that exceeded 128kb/sec. In fact, the speed of the Mullah ADSL service is really horrible; The download speed is between 10kb/sec to 20kb/sec, and the upload speed is between 1kb/sec to 5kb/sec. The report of Speedtests.net about the average internet speed in 128 countries shows that the Iran’s rank is 115, less than Saudi Arabia, Syria, Bahrain, Egypt, Tunisia, China, etc

As you see in the above table, Speedtests.net says that the average download speed in Iran is 74 kb/sec and the average upload speed is 28kb/sec, but it’s not precise, and is overestimated. The average Internet speed for different services in Iran, with their average monthly price, are as follows :

Service Download Speed Upload Speed Price
Dialup 5kb/sec 1kb/sec 20$ *
64k 7kb/sec 2kb/sec 30$
128K 15kb/sec 3kb/sec 50$
256K 25kb/sec 5kb/sec 80$
512K 40kb/sec 8kb/sec 120$
1000K 64kb/sec 15kb/sec 500$ +

*: for about 50 hours per month. +: the ordinary people can not use this service, and the price is negotiable.

The majority of Iranian internet users experience a very slow internet speed. Their average download speed is about 10 to 20 kb/sec and their upload speed is about 1 to 5 kb/sec, but they should pay a very high price for these stupid services. Whit the money that Iranians pay for these stupid internet services in Iran, the non-Iranians can buy the internet services that are at least 10 to 20 times faster ! and 100 times safer!, without the damn filtering system. It’s just one of the Mullah miracles in Iran. When your salary is 4 to 5 times less than the international salary, the prices are equal to and more than the International prices, the inflation rate is near 50% , and the Mullah solution for the dreadful economic situation is: “omitting four zeros from the national currency !” i.e. reducing its value 10,000 times, then you should be happy that your situation has only deteriorated 10,000 times after the Islamic revolution. You should be very happy that your Freedom, your economic situation, your international respect, and all aspects of your life have deteriorated 10,000 times. You should be happy that South Korea’s situation in 1970s was worse than Iran, and Iran was more developed than South Korea, and when Iran had the car industry, South Korea played with its balls, but the Mullahs f-u-c-k-e-d the Iranians’ situation 10,000 times. But it’s just the God’s mercy that the rate is 10,000 times, not 10,000,000 times. The Mullah miracles in the past 30 years imply that it should be 10,000,000 times. So, You should thank God and be happy.
