The internal network, which experts see as a way for Iran to end the regime’s fight for control of the internet, is expected to extend to the entire country within two years time.
The new network will be compliant with Islamic Law, “a genuinely halal network,” according to Ali Aghamohammadi, Iran’s head of economic affairs.
Aghamohammadi added that the new network would initially work alongside the normal internet but could eventually replace the world wide web, not only in Iran, but in other Muslim countries as well.
The Stuxnet computer worm, which reportedly set back Iran’s nuclear program pushed the regime to accelerate the internal internet initiative.
