Ogero relaunched its national internet strategy Tuesday, while also unveiling a branding overhaul for the state-run telecommunications company. Speaking at the event at the Grand Serail, Prime Minister Saad Hariri called for Lebanon to introduce faster internet speeds in order for it to compete in what he said was "the era of technology". The national fiber optic plan – the most anticipated part of the strategy – is now slated to finish in the fourth quarter of 2020 instead of the third quarter of 2019 .Not all the updates to the strategy were negative.Ultimately, Kreidieh wants 85 percent of Lebanon's population to enjoy internet speeds above 50 Mbps – more than 10 times faster than many connections today.
