Iran plowing ahead with closed network separate from Internet
USA Today

It's behind schedule, but Iran is pushing ahead with a closed, tightly controlled intranet that would offer no or little access to the global Internet, an Iranian news outlet has reported.

A limited test version was launched in January in the province of Qom, site of Iran's holiest city, reports Mianeh. A similar pilot network is expected to be launched in Kerman province by the year's end.
