Iran opens for telecoms connections

Iran opens for telecoms connections:

"When Twitter’s Jack Dorsey tweeted Hassan Rouhani in 2013 to ask if any of the citizens of his country were able to read the Iranian president’s tweets, he probably did not expect a response. To the surprise of many in the West, Mr Rouhani quickly shot back a friendly missive that access to global information for Iranians “is their #right”.

Such gestures of welcome alongside the recent lifting of economic sanctions on the country have sparked hopes among Western telecoms, technology and media groups that one of the only new markets in the Middle East is finally open for business.

Sir Martin Sorrell, chief executive of WPP, which was one of the first Western companies to test the water in the post-sanction Iranian economy, called Iran the “last great untapped market”."
