internet in Iran

I spent 3 weeks in Iran and I used dial-up internet a bit. I was a little sad about the speed of internet connection in iran since broadband is easily available for common people in most of developed countries. apart from the connection speed, the more disappointing thing was the censorship. government is controling the contect very strictly and many political sites are not accessible in Iran. for example even this page on BBC farsi website about women in Azadi stadium was unaccessible by 3 different internet services i tried.
