October DSL speed increase eagerly anticipated

26 Sep 2011

Lebanon’s ADSL fixed broadband users are set to receive a long-awaited increase to download speeds on 1 October 2011, when the state-owned PSTN operator Ogero has scheduled the launch of a range of new internet packages which will reportedly raise speeds up to eight times faster at a cost 80% cheaper per 1Mbps than existing connections. CommsUpdate reported at the start of July that after months of delays the government confirmed the availability of new international internet capacity via the India-Middle East-Western Europe (IMEWE) submarine cable, while announcing that a bill would be issued to formally dictate a reduction of internet access prices.
