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.
