I was looking websites for satellite internet I noticed this question & answer :
Q: Do I need a special government permit to use your service in my country?
A: Usually no, however such countries as Russia, Ukraine, Turkey, Egypt, Iran and UAE usually require you to obtain a VSAT equipment import and VSAT utilization permit from local governmental authorities before purchasing the system.

Why is utilization permit needed? Are there any connection between this and censorship on some website (facebook, youtube etc.) in some countries like Iran, Turkey? Does utilization of satellite internet make the censorships harder or impossible?
