Since 5 of  January 2016, Many popular circumvention tools such as Psiphon
have seen a large drop in their connections from Iran. Which leaves
millions of users behind the censorship wall.

You can clearly see the drop on Tor service for Iran in this period:

about 2 weeks ago in website I've launched a survey and one of
the questions which I've asked from people was : " if you are not using
Lantern, which proxy tools are you using. "

about 7K people were participated in that survey. You can find the survey
here, I hope it help you guys to develop more tools and also help these
organisations to improve their services.

P.S: in the last 1 month I've received 198K new emails to get proxy tool
from Iran. // on Telegram, my bot is serving 127K users which in total
they've requested about 500K times to get circumvention tools [
Psiphon,Lantern,Hotspotshield,FreedomVPN ].

Thank you
