Internet Services: Cable, ADSL, DSL in Lebanon?

About the use & development of Internet in Lebanon.

When do you think (unlimited) cable or DSL internet services will be available in Lebanon (for a decent price)?

Summary: November 2008

Postby zeez » Mon Nov 24, 2008 9:01 am

This post was started on Dec. 2003. Today we're in Nov. 2008. Five years later.

After five (5) years, UNLIMITED high speed internet is still NOT available in Lebanon for a DECENT price and the country is the one of the worst place in the world on this particular subject.

This country could have been an Internet hub for the area. It completely and intentionally lost this economic opportunity. It was not an accident. It came from local political decisions.

Today, it seems the market is composed of about about 200.000 users who are still on Modem & "illegal" cable and only 34000 new DSL users, mostly through Ogero who are paying a relatively high price for LIMITED connexion from 128Kbps to 1MB. Also, Ogero has the monopole over this & this kills all sorts of concurrence. The speed is irregular & the upload is often much slower than the download. And this DSL technology will never be able to spread to the mountains easily.

After about 10 years of Internet explosion in the world, Lebanon is still completely out of the game, but at least today, people & organization are decided to lobby & sign petitions & make some pressure on the government. But this could go on forever & Lebanon will most probably NEVER catch up.

wow my account is still alive lol
So far... after 6 years and 3 months after this thread was opened
Internet in Lebanon is still lagging behind the whole world in terms of speed(in fact Lebanon ranks the lowest in the world ), quota limitations, prices, and latency quality

DSL was only introduced since 2007, with very low limits.

There has been reports that 3G shall be ready in the summer, and as for broadband improvement, well no one can say yet, but we are hoping somewhere during 2 to 7 months.

And so it finally happened in July-August 2014, the first official "unlimited" internet connection provided by Ogero(and other ISPs now):
