Apparently VPNs were made illegal, but I don't think that was enforced.

Personally, I wish I had to go to the other side of the planet to find
this kind of thing. Bell, a Canadian ISP, does it too. Not SSL but VPN
and other traffic their DPI can't identify, is steadily throttled down
to zero. OTOH, Rogers, the only other ISP, has always messed with DNS.

Iran must be doing this with Canadian tech -- it sounds so familiar.
