Iranian government to invest US$ 18.5 billion in the ICT-sector between 2017 and 2022
Bandwidth planned to be 4-folded – Iran getting ready for e-banking and e-government
According to the Iranian minister of ICT Mahmoud Vaezi, the Iranian government plans investments of US$ 18.5 billion in the ICT sector over the period of the sixth five-year development plan, starting on 21 March 2017.
Alongside this investment, the government is planning for the investment of US$ 15 billion in industries related to ICT. The minister of ICT in January 2017 explained the expansion of access to the high-speed internet over the country: “Currently, around 700 towns and cities have access to 3rd generation and around 350 cities have access to 4th generation mobile internet access. We are planning to increase the countries bandwidth which is currently 4 Gb/s up to 17 Gb/s by the end of the year. Therefore we are ready to enter a new phase of change in many areas including banking.”
“At the moment, many ministries are using the National Broadband Network. The ministry of ICT emphasizes that the development of the National Broadband Network has created more than 100,000 jobs and therefore the electronic government is to begin still in the first quarter of 2017.”
E-commerce in Iran is developing dynamically
In Iran‘s e-commerce industry there is a break-up mood. The improvement of the Internet infrastructure has created the necessary technical conditions. The young population sees online-shopping as an attractive alternative to traditional retail. The number of online-shops is already over 20,000 and the supply continues to grow. Tehran is still at the forefront of on-line shopping. But the interest in the other regions is growing.
E-commerce has been growing strongly for two years. The breakthrough became possible, especially since the supply of 3G and LTE mobile networks has improved rapidly since 2014. Currently 3G networks are installed in about 600 cities and LTE networks in 200 cities. The transmission speeds are usually between 5 and 6 Mbps.
