TunnelBear is a company that provides VPN. VPN stands for virtual personal network. It is a program that makes it appear as if you are on your computer in a location that is different from your actual location. When an Iranian uses a VPN, government filters do not work.
TunnelBear is giving 10GB of free VPN, which is about 800 hours of web surfing, to every Iranian. They are also persuading other VPN providers to offer free services to Iranians.
The problem is that in order to get a VPN, you first need to get online. So TunnelBear has created a way to get onto the internet without using an Iranian host.
This move is a deal changer. Access to an unfiltered internet might possibly bring about the fall of the religious regime in Iran.
