TEHRAN: Iran and South Korea have signed a $40 million deal for the provision of 100,000 broadband Internet lines to the Islamic Republic, Iranian press reports said Thursday.

The accord, signed here in the presence of the telecommunications ministers of the two countries, involves the Iranian companies Asia-Tak and Arsh, and Korea Telecom.


Reports said the lines will be provided to some 20 Iranian cities, with Asia-Tak designated as the private access provider.

Iran began to offer ADSL Internet access earlier this year, but lines are still limited in number and geographical placement. The Islamic republic has an estimated three million Internet users."
