The Ministry of Telecommunications (MoT) has licensed three data service providers to rent OGERO’s fibre-optic network and create a fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) project.
What that means is that fibre-optic internet connections are coming to homes in Beirut and wider Lebanon pretty soon.
The FTTH project will allow internet speeds of up to 100 Mb/s, with higher consumption capacities. It’s likely that any fibre package will be a bit more expensive than DSL, but who can put a price on reliable, fast internet?
And you’ll be able to do more than surf the web with a fibre connection – added-value content like TV will also pass through the same cable.

In terms of who will be your fibre internet provider, it’ll depend entirely on where you live. The MoT said that it will assign the distribution of FTTH projects based on geography within two months.
