Submission + - Iran Quietly Allows YouTube Access ( 1

RedEaredSlider writes: After 19 months, the Iranian government restored access to YouTube, roughly coinciding with the anniversary of the Islamic revolution.

According to Google's Transparency Report on Iran, YouTube's traffic had been at near-zero levels since June 12, 2009. That coincides with the massive unrest following a disputed election that returned Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinajad to office for another four-year term.

On Feb. 11, YouTube traffic suddenly rose, though it is still below 2009 levels.
