Re: Internet in Lebanon - General Questions

I believe Wise, Wigo & Mobi will all be phased out as part of the Telecom's push for 3G (while the rest of world upgrades to 4G/LTE).

And as The-MMMs put it:

[They are] more interested in personal gain

Exactly, that's why I'm with Ogero now.

But with the new speeds, I'll switch to anyone with unlimited plans.

I hope Ogero never gives unlimited, I don't want my network to get congested by all the "I d0wnl0ads internets" users.

Re: Internet in Lebanon - General Questions

Do we have any idea about the latency difference with the new routes/connections?

Will ogero still be the only ISP worth having if you want to game online?

There are rumors going around that Ogero users will see an improvement starting on the 1st (of September)--does anyone have any sources to link to?

There's only 1 major improvement considering Ogero service, is that the modem lock on the Internet before my PC starts up. I mean like no time, while before it will take a minimum of 15mins so I'm able to start browsing.

The guy in the support, told me that just when the new law is in the official gazette, it will take only 1 week so the new speeds are delivered.

That lock issue has been solved since 3 months ( at least in my case )


Now the question is... Are we gonna have our upgrade or are we gonna have reduced rate ?

Say if I have a 1mbps connection now and paying 115,000LL excluding VAT, will the new connection bandwith be automatically upgraded to 4mbps along with the quota or the price iwill automatically drop to 34,000LL ?

because in the 2nd case, I will have to get the last bill and take my dad to sign some papers at Ogero etc... and then wait for the other month to get the bandwidth upgrade...

If in your area the new speed is available ( which is 4Mbps in your case ), you'll be upgraded to it, if you can't get it, you'll get maximum speed available with more quota. They wont give you 1Mbps for less money, you'll pay the same for higher speed.

Kareem, you do not need your dad to go and upgrade it. You, as his son, can do it. I've done it many times. (besides, you can get a copy of the last bill from the central office)

Re: Internet in Lebanon - General Questions

Just remember this is Up to 1Mbps, which just like now I'm getting 24KB/s max with 256Kbps, we'll get 100~110KB/s with 1Mbps

I wish this was the case but couple of times I went there and they said ( at Bir hassan )  " El ishtirak bi ism bayyak lezim yejeh "

For people asking about the 1mpbs , In my case I only get 908kbps and download rate is somewhere near 110KB/s best case.

@ 4mbps I think we only get 3.5Mbps-3.6Mbps if we are lucky and our line supports that speed.

Re: Internet in Lebanon - General Questions

I'm an idm user i have 128Kbps speed when i wanted to upgrade to 256Kbps they told me that my line doesn't support this speed so after the new decree will be applied will the speed stay the same or will they upgrade my line or put something like a repeater?

@bigjudge: the first table describes how Ogero will sell ADSL connections to private sector, and those are not the prices for the end users.

Will it take non-DSL providers like VISP longer to recieve the new connection than DSL providers?

hmm one question, as far as I know, DSL connection is not affected by the number of users around you, it is affected by the distance from the ISP and your place.

I am with you that Ogero doesn't give unlimited, but can you explain please how does more downloaders affect the speed?

Re: Internet in Lebanon - General Questions

FuSe, 10GBits/second isn't much to be honest at Mbits/second. Users will eat it quickly if you give them unlimited. No constrains => people can download 24/7 => networks get congested again.

Re: Internet in Lebanon - General Questions

hi all,

i dont know if any1 touched this before but do u guys think that we will see latency improvement with the new dsl connections?

i currently have ogero 512 package,  playin black ops, my ping ranges between 150ms - 200ms...playable...but of course anything below 100ms is awesome...however lately, i am havin difficulty playin as the ping gets really unstable...sometimes just goes up to over a sec before coming back to normal. i have tried everything to resolve this (changed modem, changed lines, changed filters..no luck)...really ruins your gaming experience...so do u guys think this will be improved?

thanks

Re: Internet in Lebanon - General Questions

The backbone is being converted to fiber, it should bring latency improvements.
