Lebanon's telecommunications minister promised to boost the average Internet connection speed across the country in "a couple of months" after the implementation of a set of measures aimed at regulating the sector.The Telecommunications Ministry had announced in June that the entry-level digital subscriber line plan, priced at $16, would be upgraded as of the beginning of July to 2 Mbps with a 40 gigabyte data usage cap, as opposed to the previous 1 Mbp and 4 gigabytes of data.ISPs have for some time been requesting additional capacity from Ogero to boost the Internet speed for existing DSL customers, as per the Telecommunications Ministry's advertised data plans, according to Khaldoun Farhat, the CEO of Terranet, a leading Internet service provider in Lebanon.However, some Internet users, such as subscribers to Data Service Provider Cable-1, a partner of Terranet, have already started enjoying upgraded bandwidths, Farhat said.
