Iran’s telecommunications agency announced a permanent suspension of Google’s email services. According to the agency, they will be rolling out a national email service for Iranian citizens. All this in the midst of an expected anti-government protest; which stems from last May’s presidential elections. If you remember, Twitter played a huge role for communication during the protests; this caused a lot of Iranian citizens to be reliant on western technology. Prior to May’s election, the Iranian government blocked access to Facebook. Not only have the social networking sites and Gmail been blocked, the Wall Street Journal reports that the police have confiscated satellite dishes from residential rooftops.
