TOOSHEH CHANNEL

Toosheh -"knapsack" in Persian- uses datacasting technology to distribute content that would otherwise be inaccessible to people in Iran and the neighboring countries. Using their already installed satellite dish, users can access up to 8 GB of information daily, including educational and training materials, news articles, entertainment, movies,  and rapid alerts in the event of a natural disaster. In a region where internet access is severely limited due to infrastructure, price, and government restrictions, Toosheh provides an immersive "bundle" that allows users to engage in worldwide conversations-- all at no cost and a data transfer rate of 1 GB an hour.

 
I think the idea behind Toosheh is brilliant. Using this method you can download Tor Browser, our video explaining Tor, and Tails within minutes—something that’s currently impossible with the internet speed in Iran.
