I am on a sort of illegal cable for less than 50$, I get a 128k (symetrical!), and it works very well for what it is... I can't tell more about it because it is "illegal" houha... & with that, I am suppose to consider myself as a privileged lebanese...
All countries are well connected today... I have heard Syria offers cheap and very fast DSL connections (is this true?).
About Lebanon, from what I have heard (but is that true? if you know something please confirm or infirm) the problem is very simple: a guy called Ralph Lahoud - who happens to be the son of the president of the republic of Lebanon - holds the UNIQUE licence for high speed internet. So he sets the rules and all ISP must pay him (= his company set-up)...
Maybe someone should interview him so he could explain to the people what is going on exactly and what they are suppose to expect.
(+ they are limiting the bandwidth to avoid people using Skype & stop paying phone bills to the state telecom)
