Perhaps complete freedom is not suitable for the people of the world, but we are aware of the fact that too much restriction does not have any positive results. Especially the restriction and filtering in the field of access to the world’s information and technologies, which if not implemented correctly, will cause the country to lag behind.

According to many officials, one of the most important reasons for slow internet speed in Iran is filtering. This means that extensive and comprehensive filtering in Iran, in addition to limiting free access to information and normalizing the use of unreliable filter breakers for the general public, has also reduced the speed and quality of the Internet, which all people use for business. They need it for their education, communication, daily activities or recreation.
