Iran starts implementing optical fiber project in Abu Musa

Such a project will provide the residents at homes and in the shops across the island with high internet speed with over several hundreds of megabits per second, Issa Zarepour announced on his account in social media on Monday.

About six months ago, the Persian Gulf could connect Bandar-e Lengeh in the southern Iranian province of Hormozgan through an optical fiber in the sea to the Persian Gulf, the minister wrote.

It was in July that Zarepour noted that his ministry has connected the Persian Gulf islands of Abu Musa, the Lesser Tunb, and the Greater Tunb to the Iranian mainland with the use of fiber optics.

Earlier in May, Iranian President Ebrahim Raeisi inaugurated six major telecoms projects as part of a drive by his administration to boost the country’s communication infrastructures.
