I'm switching to global vision, and they are claiming they need a maximum of 10 days to give me my internet.
While when I called to cancel from wise they told ogero redisabled this from happening and it would take them 1.5 - 2 months for switching ISPs....
1 of them is lying or uninformed, I took the risk and asked wise to cancel it, since they could easily lie to discourage me from canceling..

I feel I should give an update on this. I received a phone call today from global vision, they are gonna install the new router tomorrow.
turns out all they needed was 3 days, and now we know who was lying/uninformed.
I will post gaming ping and speed results in comparison with that of wise tomorrow night on the "feedback for THGV" thread.

We might need to do some tuning and tests for your account, as thgv have several options for gamers ping. I think it worth to try all of them.

How far away do you live from the CO? it could be a case where you are connected to an active cabinet in your area as well.
There should be attenuation for sure.

Re: Internet in Lebanon - General Questions

Hello guys,

I am with ogero subscribed to the open speed 100 GB plan and getting speeds around 13mbps on adsl.

I saw packages of other ISPs . I liked Terranet and Mobi plans for example. I especially need the unlimited night traffic .
Which of the private ISPs would you recommend . Will i find an ISP as stable as ogero or at least close ? And which do you recommend . I previously heard IDM was the best but now their support is very bad .

I agree--stay with Ogero.  The other ISP's always have an asterisk with FUP or other limitation(s) which makes their offers too good to be true.  If you need more capacity for downloads,  and you don't care about the speeds, subscribe to one of the unlimited plans, but you get slower internet with is frustrating, or you could jump up your plan in 50 gig increments for $10.

Re: Internet in Lebanon - General Questions

I have 2 questions so I'll devide them into 2 posts coz they are not related.

#1
Sorry to ask in here, but has anyone faced issues with some games on specific networks?! It's annoying the hell out of me.

I'm on PC:

-I can play Squad on wifi home ogero network but not on my 4G mobile hotspot network. I technically can, but only find couple of chinese servers only, while when i'm on wifi i can see all servers European, ME, American etc...

-I can only play Battlefield V on my 4G mobile hotspot network and not on my wifi home ogero network. It even doesn't load on wifi and says that it's offline. Once I switch networks it works like a charm.
Other Origin games like Apex work perfectly fine on wifi.

Has anyone done any tests regarding wifi vs lan?!

I'm on ogero and my ping is bad although they have put me on interleaving off / low ping mode.
It hovers between 90 and 120 with occasional spikes to thousands for a couple of seconds each like 5 minutes. It gets very annoying while gaming.

Upstream    Downstream
Current Rate (kbps)    404    6400
Max Rate (kbps)    418    7680
SNR Margin (dB)    7.3    9.9
Line Attenuation (dB)    36.7    24.3
Errors (pkts)    89    504

I'm fine with downloads speeds but the ping issues are irritating me.

So would a LAN cable be very beneficiary for my case?!!
I'll have to go like 10m and cut through a wall so it's a bit of hassle that's why I'm asking, to see if it's worth it.
Would the ping spikes begone? How much would the ping be lower? Will it be more stable?!

I'd like to know if anyone conducted a quasi-scientific quantitative/qualitative tests about this matter: Wifi vs Lan.

Re: Internet in Lebanon - General Questions

Guys, does anyone know a good reliable internet provider in Monsef (above byblos).
There is no phone line, so dsl is not an option.

If you have a 4G enabled phone, try manual searching for available networks. if you find in your area a 4G network for Ogero, then your area is covered by LTE network by OGERO. it would be faster than ADSL.

Re: Internet in Lebanon - General Questions

And then I would subscribe for LTE from alfa or touch?
I would rather not seeing the prices.
I was talking about cable internet.

What I mean is the following:
In some rural areas, there is no Ogero cable network, and they provide internet and landline over LTE.

if there is 4G network for Ogero in your area, you can buy that service from them. it is the same price as regular DSL and far more stable than cable.

Edit: I just looked your place up, and by checking the plan, your area is far from any LTE tower for Ogero. Sorry for that!

Re: Internet in Lebanon - General Questions

Guys,
Which ISP would you recommend after Ogero?
I don't really care about gaming. I just need a stable connection but the private ISPs offers are better than ogero.
Any suggestions?

Re: Internet in Lebanon - General Questions

Is anyone experiencing really slow bandwidth between 6p.m and 11 p.m ? I usually get around 16 mbps during non peak hours but for the last 3 weeks it drops to 1mbps from 6 till 11 pm . After talking to sodetel support she confessed that there is a nation wide problem with bandwidth. Is anyone have the same problem?

Re: Internet in Lebanon - General Questions

If they said exactly like that, then they lie, there is no nationwide problem with bandwidth.
But from 6pm till 11pm load is high on all ISP, and if ISP have decent bandwidth control, they might reduce priority on heavy accounts (depending on price of service) to reduce "pressure" on their backbone capacity.
if ISP is cheap - they lie about "nationwide problems".
