Fast Lebanon or Furious Battle

In support of the Lebanese campaign towards a country with fast internet and part of the responsibility to disseminate the demands or needs of the crowd, we unanimously decided to join, help in demonstrations, and promote better policy reform for this issue.

Lebanon has two internet service providers of little competitiveness and unbelievable prices. It’s even said that both ISPs have agreed “under the table” on joint price list in order to avoid killer promotions. In our last report on internet speed in the region, Lebanon was ranking last among the Mid-level income countries with very low internet speed of 0.59 Mb/s.

We invite you to support these campaigns that are uprising on social networks:

  1. Lebanese wants fast internet (Facebook page with +27,000 fans)
  2. Ontornet (Facebook page with +450 fans)
  3. Flip the Swith (Facebook group with +1,100 members)

This is just the announcement, we’ll be running a report on internet speed in the region again and we’ll be writing in-depth analysis on the situation and any new developments.

The situation is literally unbearable.
