Iran claims higher Internet penetration than Malaysia’s!

Posted on May 15, 2007  /  2 Comments

Iran’s ICT Minister Mohammad Soleimani has said his country’s Internet penetration had a 60% growth last year compared to year before last, reaching 16%. Therefore, he claimed Iran’s Internet penetration is above that of Malaysia today. But an industry analyst is reluctant to say “Yes Minister.”


  1. Wondered whether the source was the ITU, which states that Zimbabwe is ahead of India in ICT opportunity:

    But no, the ITU is clean on this one.

  2. Big deal!!!

    think china has better penetration than all these countries — but why’s yahoo and ebay pulling out of china. Internet penetration doesnt mean opportunity..
