The information below wasn’t confirmed by any official entity, i.e. thus far it is just a rumor, but still…
Iran is said to take a decision to completely disconnect the worldwide web from the country in favor of its own “clean” alternative.
Some of the media reports claim that the current plan is that the country will institute a nationwide intranet which will be isolated from the regular web, and, of course, strictly regulated by the Iran authorities. This wasn’t the first time such reports hit the web: the plan was reported before, because it was said to be first proposed last year and aimed at the great unwashed.
However, according to the plan, elite users will keep access to the regular Internet. Among those users would be institutions like banks, ministries, and major companies. In addition, the country’s government is also said to be developing its own custom e-mail service along with new national search engine dubbed Ya Haq.
Those users who want an e-mail account with Ya Haq will be required to register their identity with the government. In order words, the Iran authorities will be able to monitor all the letters the citizens send and receive. Before, the country promised to launch its alternative service in August, but Iranian officials later denied this promise.
In fact, the country is officially claiming that it isn’t going to cut access to the worldwide web inside the country at all, and is calling the media report absolutely baseless. But industry experts for some reason don’t believe Iranian representatives, pointing out that they might hope to get away without telling anyone. The only thing the authorities confirmed was that the country was developing a national information network.

|It wouldn't surprise me if they do this.|
|wow a new level of Oppressiveness, and im sure some idiot will say there doing the right thing, What Iran is doing to cutting off communication of the poor so they cant publicly speak out about how they are mistreated by their government.|
|so now we know were america got its new internet plan from|
|better apply the chinese format:|
first, the rumor passing around by insiders in blogs
then, the rumor suddenly becomes a fact.
rumors could always allow people to get used to it
so when it (suddenly) a fact, nobody would be too shocked
it's been used by oil industries for years
first, rumors, then price hikes indefinitely
any rumor related to governmental authorities
treat it as a fair warning prior to becoming a fact
iranian government will shut down the internet service to the public sooner, but it will keep the internet available for their own use
just like north korea, internet is for those limited chosen ones.
Also would that mean they would also cut off all international telecommunications? Telephone and other data avenues?
Also another how would they be able to block all sat comm links?

|the US government was soposta do this like a month ago but for different reasons. it never happened.|
@menahunie: sat comm links can be interrupted, blocked or switched off from the sat in space. but this takes a bit more to do.
|that is not gonna happen guys|
they have been talking about this for around three years but still nothing happened yet
im pretty sure that stuxnet stuff really accelerated this plan(thanks to Americans) but it is not gonna happen at least not this soon
i actually believe that censorship in iran is a necessary thing because most of people do not know how to protect themselves when using internet specially children and teenagers
well i dont really care either because whatever they do there is always a way around it for me
|OMG! I almost wet myself out of pure excitment.....then I realized it said Iran and NOT India..........bummer...........|
|^LOL. Enjoy your ban|
|@ menahunie YAWN.......................|
