BEIRUT: Lebanon’s state-run telecom provider Ogero announced over the weekend it would begin increasing Internet speeds to at least 1 mbs at some 60 stations throughout the country, the National New Agency reported.
Ogero’s director general, Abdel Mouneum Youssif, said work to improve Internet speeds would commence Tuesday and would cover areas including Kfar Zeina, Ehden, Tannourine, Samar Jabeil, Mairouba and Douma.
He added that technicians would be working throughout the day and night, including public holidays, to improve the DSL networks and get customers up to speed over the holidays, adding that they hoped to have the work completed before years’ end.
Last week, Ogero said it was working to increase DSL Internet speeds to 1 mbps for subscribers linked to 43 stations around the country.
According to Ogero, there are a total of 170 such stations.
