Internet Services: Cable, ADSL, DSL in Lebanon?

Postby admin » Tue Dec 09, 2003 5:27 am

In 2003, there are no serious fast internet connexions available in Lebanon. What is the reason for this? Is it economical, political or what?

In Beirut, some offices can afford a little better connexions, but there are no CABLE or ADLS internet providers (ISP) in Lebanon, yet. Also, modem connexions are more expensive than in the USA or Europe. Computer parts are also more expensive due to the small size of the Lebanese market...

Time is running fast outside... Things are being developed... For some people this is a big issue.

Satellite...

Postby Josette » Fri Dec 19, 2003 3:29 am

But cables & ADSL are not the only ways to get Fast Internet...

A fast Internet service through SATELLITE started in Spring 2003. They asked for $50 to $100 for installation and for less then $50/month. It kept being postponed, and then it was finally launched one day in April or May.

It worked very well for... 2 days! and then it suddenly closed. With no warning and no clear reason... It had to call myself to ask and they just told me: "Oh you didn't know?... They stopped it!"...

I don't have serious info about this story... Only vague rumors that contradict each other.

1/ Some people told me it was the President Lahoud who refused to give a licence to anyone for many years on purpose (!) so he could keep it for his son (!)... And then this project was finally launched by the son. And P. Minister Hariri stopped it because he is jalous (!)... Is this possible?

2/ Some other people said it is the Syrians who don't like the idea of affordable Fast Internet for everybody because this would be too much freedom...

3/ Another source said it is the State of Lebanon who wants the Lebanese to keep using the regular phone lines, so that the money keeps going to the Telecom State Company, instead of giving up licences to private companies.

Where is the truth in all of this...?!

Satellite vs Cable

Postby Josette » Fri Dec 19, 2003 3:37 am

Just suggesting:

Maybe they stopped this SATELLITE method for political reasons... because it is technically much harder for the State of Lebanon (or the State of Syria) to spy on Lebanese citizens...

And on the other side, maybe they cannot lauch the normal Cable or ADSL because the country is not ready yet (inter-continental cable to thin, bandwith to low etc.).

Hello,

Let me first tell you few things lebanese living in beirut and only visiting the west for vacation should know:

1 - Education (schools & Universities) in lebanon vs in the west:
Education in lebanon WINS

2 - Banking system in lebanon vs in the west:
Banking system in lebanon WINS

3 - Movie theaters in lebanon vs in the west:
Movie theaters in lebanon WINS

4 - Night life in lebanon vs in the west:
Night life in lebanon WINS

5- Common Sense, IQ and EI of lebanese vs Westerns
Lebanese wins by far over westerns

Now, this is my own opinion after living most of my life in lebanon, made travels to few westerns countries and living since 2 years in France.
I am ready to go in details with anyone wishing to learn more about the realities of the west rather how the media represents the west for us.

Now, why to hell, if we lebanese has so much mind and culture advancement are way back as a nation from the westerns?
Simple! it is due to our high level, the masterminds who control the west wished and decided that our country suffer continous wars: economical as well as political. All public figures since 1943 did the job directly and indirectly for the western powers; of course, keeping westerns in ignorance by providing them money without working, offering them absolute freedom as to eat, drink, have a house and have sex.

Why lebanon does not have neither ADSL nor Cable:
- ADSL and Cable if governed as shitty as lebanon is governed by all respective (not respectful) lebanese governments will make the country and the pockets of the governers loose money, lots of money coz ADSL and Cable will allow having a lot of IT technology without passing by lebanese public services.
- Information cannot be tracked
- in 1994, lebanon was supposed to be the center of telecommunication of the ME (apart Isreal) but the project shifted to syria by international orders.

and more to come if you wish.

Take care all

MerryXmas and HappyNewYear to you and to your beloved

november 2004

Postby zeez » Thu Nov 04, 2004 4:26 pm

As of November 2004, here are the ways to get online in Lebanon:

- Dial up connexions though ISP like terranet or cyberia (very very slow, even when it says 56, it is more like 4...)

- 'Illegal' cables (about 50$ for installation, and 40 to 50 per months). They usually use satellite connexions to download, and a local ISP for the upload. It can be very slow sometimes but at least it is permanent...

- Fast connexion (usally through sattelite). This costs about 300 to 500$ per month... for a speed like about 128... When in Europe, they now offer a speed of 1000 for less than $40 per month...


In these conditions, no wonder the Lebanese web is very poor. People use emails, they chat alot also, they search for informations... Of course, there is no real Lebanese online market and nothing serious will ever happen if it stays like this.

This is very sad. Fast internet access for a cheap price should be a priority in Lebanon. It should have been a prority, 10 years ago, a much higher priority than to rebuild the Centre-Ville for example. Many underdeveloped and Third World countries understood this already.

ADSL in Lebanon? April 2006!

Postby admin » Wed Feb 22, 2006 7:39 pm

Finally! It seems ADSL will be operational in April 2006...

It is hard to believe that it will come on time... but hopefully it will come...

Ogero, Cyberia and other ISP's will be offering this service for about $50 per month for a speed of 2MB, at least for donwload...

Also: we have no idea if the monthly bandwidth will be limited, and what will be the speed of the Upload...

The basic plan

Postby zeez » Fri Mar 03, 2006 6:25 pm

I think it will be: $50.00 per month

512kbps DOWNLOAD
512kbps UPLOAD
+ Unlimited bandwidth

if it works well that would be a good beggining...
And the opening of a sort of new era in Lebanon...

OGERO

Postby murex » Wed Mar 08, 2006 10:07 pm

I called Ogero. They said that the starting offer might be only:

DL = 128
UL = 64 or 32...

But that they will also offer such things as:

DL = 2 MB
UL = 2 MB

But they don't know much yet, nothing seems decided and they have no prices to give...

We are already into march now... The DSL is suppose to be out by the end of the month... I wonder if they'll be on time...

DSL soon 2 arrive in LEBANON

Postby Raficoo » Mon Mar 20, 2006 5:19 pm

hey every1, DSL is really new to lebanon, however DSL should have arrival in Lebaon before 5 years, REALLY IT"S TRUE, the 1 single only thing that didn't allow DSL to be in LEBANON is the syrian troopes that withdrawed from Lebanon before a year ago, so now Lebanon is more free than before, and nwere things will come, DSL will range fromm 128kb/s, 256kb/s, 512kb/s, 1.0mb/s and finaly 2.0m/s, now i'm not sure about the prices, but i hope it'l not be more than 50$ for 512kb/s, but the price will decrease in time cause the compaines will have more people, which means more money and they'll decrease the price.. so i'm expecting DSL WILL ARRIVE in the beginning of april. and HOPEFULLY it's be out in all of LEBANON.. god willing... but PLEASE IF ANYONE KNOWS WHEN DSL WILL ARRIVE TO LEBANON EXACTLY PLEASE EMIAL ME or REPLY!!

PEACE
