Ogero chief Imad Kreidieh Wednesday confirmed that a major submarine cable system connecting Lebanon's internet to the outside world was undergoing maintenance, but expected the work to be completed by Thursday without significant interruption to users."To be very honest, based on the [test results] we're getting, we are not in a bad shape at all," Kreidieh said, adding that internet is "just below 80 percent capacity now".Asked about the slow speeds, he said that Ogero had taken all necessary measures to prevent users experiencing problems during the maintenance. Earlier this week, the Ogero head warned internet users in the country that the maintenance would be undertaken. Prior to the IMEWE, Kreidieh also took to Twitter to inform the public about the marine cable between Cyprus and Alexandria.
