TEHRAN, Jan. 12 (MNA) – Iran’s ICT Minister Mahmoud Vaezi said the country’s international internet bandwidth has grown 3.5x in two years and hit the capacity of 276 GB/s data transfer rate.

The announcement was made by Minister of Communications and Information Technology Mahmoud Vaezi at the fifth Conference on E-banking in Tehran on Monday.

“The international internet bandwidth has broadened from 72 GB/s to 276 GB/s in the last two years and the country’s IP capacity has also increased fivefold,” said Vaezi.

He went on to add that the ICT Ministry’s future plans include increasing the bandwidth capacity of national network infrastructure, increasing local content in cyberspace, as well as full coverage of e-government services.

“Iran’s foreign relations in the field of communications and information technology are developing, and with the removal of sanctions, normal conditions will return to our foreign relations and economic growth will thrive,” he said.

Vaezi considered attracting foreign capital and technology as the most important goals of foreign policy for economic growth, adding “it is imperative to create appropriate conditions in our foreign relations so that we can retain our position in presenting domestic products in global markets.”
