About 12 days after the internet outage in Iran, mobile internet (data) is still not connected in most parts of the country. NetBlock statistics show that Irancell Internet is connected, but objective evidence suggests that most mobile users do not yet have access to the International Internet.
While fixed internet (ADSL and TD-LTE) are connected in most cities of Iran, users of mobile operators still do not have full access to the international internet.
According to news agencies, mobile internet has been connected to 10 provinces so far, which are:
- North Khorasan
- southern Khorasan
- Chahar Mahal Bakhtiari
According to the NetBlocks website (NetBlocks.org), which monitors Internet connections around the world, 98% of Irancell’s Internet is connected to date, but in reality most Irancell users still do not have access to the World Wide Web.
Net Block statistics of mobile internet connection in Iran are as follows:
- Irancell: 98%
- Rightel: 26 percent
- MCI: 1 percent
According to experts on Twitter, it seems that Irancell Internet network is connected and sends pings, but Irancell has not yet established a connection from the user side.
While home internet is reportedly connected throughout the country, some users living in the provinces of Khuzestan, Kurdistan, Isfahan, Alborz and Fars have reported that the internet (fixed and mobile) has been cut off in some parts of their provinces. It also appears that the internet is still down in some cities, including Shahriar and Islamshahr.
Yesterday (December 26), the representatives of the city of Tehran in the parliament, in a letter to the Minister of Communications, demanded a connection to the Internet as soon as possible.
Interior Minister Rahmani Fazli announced last night on RFE / RL that the mobile Internet will be discussed today (Wednesday) in the National Security Council.
Update – December 27 at 4:00 PM: An informed source announced the connection of 7 provinces and major parts of the capital to the Internet until further notice.
Update – 6 Azar at 16:20: Irancell mobile internet is connected in Tehran.
