Iran’s government suspected of harming country’s internet

Iranians are struggling to access the local internet, which is slow and limited, as it has raised suspicions about possible government boycotts.

On June 14, the country went through the first presidential election since 2009, when Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was re-elected on suspicion of fraud, sparking a series of protests organized partly via social media.

Proximity to the election raises suspicions that the government is behind the current network problems, according to the Reuters, but the hypothesis has been officially denied.
