[liberationtech] Iran "National Internet" RFP?

Amin,

Here is a link to Fars report on the Request for Information:
http://www.farsnews.com/newstext.php?nn=13910127000168

I believe this is the actual solicitation:
http://www.itrc.ac.ir/itrcfarakhanb.php

Not the behavior of a country that is interested in disconnecting from the
Internet entirely.

Cordially,
Collin
