Slow surfing for the righteous

Things are fine in Iran, have a look:

This seems perfectly normal to me, how about you? It's just shiny, happy oppressed Iranian women surfing uncensored parts of the Internet from plastic lawn chairs, of course.

The Guardian:
In a blow to the country's estimated 5 million internet users, service providers have been told to restrict online speeds to 128 kilobytes a second and been forbidden from offering fast broadband packages. The move by Iran's telecommunications regulator will make it more difficult to download foreign music, films and television programmes, which the authorities blame for undermining Islamic culture among the younger generation.
Iran filters more websites than any other country apart from China.
