Lebanon finally crosses the finish line

04May07

It comes with mixed emotions to announce that Lebanon finally gets DSL Service.

DSL in Lebanon

This post, filed under ‘Today in Lebanese History’, took a while for me to select as to which category it fell under.

The announcement hit The Daily Stars’ 8th page.

Telecom Minister M. Hamadeh said Ogero will be handing 45’000 DSL connections out of which 7000 this year.

While the positive outlook of the article hints at the enormous demand in the market (which shouldn’t be surprising, provided that the Internet has increased exponentially throughout the world), Hamadeh said that Ogero will be setting up 50 connections per day in Lebanon… not a bad share.

Lets hope things go to plan.

The bandwidth I assume will be set up for quality competition among local providers.
