Re: Internet in Lebanon - General Questions

If the speedtest on ogero website says the speed on my line can reach 3Mbps does it also mean that the connection would be stable at that speed?

It depends on many factors ,your house’s location with respect to the “central” and your internal wiring .

My home and office lines are up to 5mbps but my speed is reaching 7.

Re: Internet in Lebanon - General Questions

Today I applied for Ogero Fiber, I currently have IDM Open Speed, Ogero announced that they are open to fill the fiber form for submit, they said they are still checking how much clients there are in the area and the final decision is not yet taken, hopefully they go for it and the long waited 50mbps happens

Re: Internet in Lebanon - General Questions

VDSL is everywhere if you're close enough to the centrale or to an active cabinet.

But there is no Fiber there (FTTH) only in Hamra and achrafieh at the moment.
However if they have a FTTC you can benefit from VDSL, but still your application willl go to waste since it is only for FTTH.

you can check the deployment map, the Ogero contact person asked about the office I work for in Batroun, they said the FTTH is ready there and the installation can be done in a short amount of time

You don't need fttc to have VDSL. FTTC makes it possible at longer distances but if you're close enough to your centrale, you can have VDSL. I for example have been on VDSL since August in Jounieh in an area that still doesn't have FTTC.

Are you sure Ras el Nabeh is eligible ? I'm literally 200m away from the central office.

I know man, if you are close to the central office you can get VDSL without FTTC as long as the central office is equipped with VDSL hardware ... but in anayman_k7's case and as per the deployment map Qalamoun has FTTC therefore FTTH is not possible, however he also said the Ogero contact told him it is doable, so we'll see how it goes for him.

I remeber reading it either on the Cyberia website or the gds one ...i’m sure it was Ras El Nab3 because i’m not familiar with that region so i must have read it.

I’m relatively new to adsl modem figures,i started researching 2 weeks ago ,my line was updated last month from1 to 5mbps as well.

I learned that snr will go down when ur actual isp speed goes up ,so if ur current speedtest is more than 5mbps than ur figures r ok . But if these figures are on a 1mbps connection than they’re not so good.

the numbers on ogero's site are a rough approximation, sometimes a worst case scenario.

Re: Internet in Lebanon - General Questions

with 12dB line attenuation you should be close enough to the centrale if you want to get VDSL. I would suggest asking for a VDSL feasibility test.
