TEHRAN, IRAN (AP) - Iranian authorities have blocked many foreign-based virtual private networks, or VPNs, severely restricting access to many websites.
A report Tuesday by the independent Donya-e Eghtesad daily quotes lawmaker Ramazan Ali Sobhani as saying his parliamentary committee in charge of communications will review the results of the block on VPNs, which went into effect last Wednesday.
Since the street unrest that followed President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s 2009 re-election, Iran has tightened restrictions on VPN use and occasionally blocked them.
