Lebanon's Internet service providers will have successfully completed the necessary upgrades to their infrastructure by the end of June, enabling them to boost the speed and quota for their existing customers as per the new data plans set by the Telecoms Ministry.Effective July 1, the entry level DSL plan, still priced at $16, will be upgraded to 2 Mbps with a 40 gigabyte cap, compared with the previous 1 Mbps and 4 gigabytes of data. The failure to improve the Internet infrastructure and secure better speeds for subscribers under the new data plans would deal a big blow to ISPs in Lebanon, Chammas warned.Additional improvements to Lebanon's Internet infrastructure might be required in the future if connection speeds are to increase above 8 Mbps, another telecom expert who also spoke on condition of anonymity told The Daily Star.
