Cat Can't Scratch It
- May 9, 2000
Iran is implementing a plan to isolate its citizens from Western influence by instituting its very own Internet. Iran’s telecommunications chief claims in two years, all ties with the Global Internet will be cut and all homes and businesses will be connected by the government run Internet. The switch will include a new operating system and a national search engine.
Iran will roll out a parallel network with the current one and then make a full and final switch to its own Internet.
