Hamadeh vows to have DSL in place by May 5

BEIRUT: Lebanese Telecommunications Minister Marwan Hamadeh promised on Thursday that high-speed DSL Internet connections will be launched May 5, but questions linger over how fast monopoly telecom operator Ogero will be able to connect the expected flood of customers to the new service.

However, the benefits might be long delayed if Ogero is only able to connect the 20-25 customers per day that it promised Internet service providers (ISPs) such as IDM, said IDM executive director Maroun Chammas. Connecting 25 customers per day would allow a yearly maximum of 6,600 DSL connections from the country's roughly 300,000 existing users.
"This is extremely low and it's not going to work," he said. "Ogero should be able to process at least 10 times this number."

Ogero officials have not answered repeated requests for interviews over the past two weeks. ISPs provided Ogero months ago with estimates of demand for DSL, but Ogero has yet to submit to the TRA any written commitment on installation procedures.

ISPs have not released final DSL prices, but Ogero has proposed installation for LL55,000 (about $37), while 128-kbps service would cost LL35,000 monthly for home users; 256 kbps would cost LL50,000, 512 kbps LL70,000 and 1.024 mbps LL115,000. Businesses would pay slightly higher prices.

Heureuse nouvelle? :) semblerions nous vouloir refaire notre entrée dans la grande famille des pays normaux où même s'il n'existe pas de libertés individuelles, le quidam moyen aurait la possibilité normale de pouvoir prétendre à une connection internet enfin moyenne?

Khay, pourrions nous nous hâter à dire, se laissant aller au bête désir primaire de voir notre fantasme assouvi...

Mais perso, j'attendrai de poster mon premier post sur adsl avant de cybersauter de joie :)

paske des promesses pareilles, de la même langue moisie, reprise par les mêmes journaux blasés, on en a entendu des tonnes.

celà dit, c'est cool, si bi 2iznillah, ça devient réel et normal, in cha2a llah, bi izn illah, sadaqallahoul 3azeem. yallah, nchallah kheir. allahou akbar.

j'adore cependant "marwan hamadé promised"... c'est tellement paradoxal...
