Good internet in New Naccache/Rabieh

Dear fellow geeks,

I live in New Naccache, and I'm looking for the best internet connection possible.

DSL and Fiber are not an option for me, so please advise on third party/black market ISPs.

Thanks in advance!

Have you looked into IDM 4G internet option ?

Ask Ogero about the Fixed LTE-A plans: https://ogero.gov.lb/service.php?type=personal&id=41

I checked with connect a couple of weeks back, they told me they have outages during the day, You also need to make sure they have good signal in your location

Is this a 4G based service? They give you a sim and you can plug it in a 4G modem or does it use another type of modem? And are these the new prices after the increase? This seems to be the case because they say plans are effective starting 01/07/2022

Yes, it's LTE-based.

I'm not sure about the SIM - I think they sell you a pre-configured LTE modem like Alfa and Touch probably do.

Yes, these are the new prices after the increase.

I contacted Ogero regarding LTE. They said no applications are being accepted for LTE.

I think the prices are wrong. They are identical to ADSL prices,

The prices are correct. They were written down in an official paper before they were made public.

Ogero is selling speed and quota, regardless of the physical medium used to deliver the service - of course, according to what each physical medium permits:

4-8mbps over ADSL (provided your line is capable)
Up to 50mbps over Fixed LTE-A, FTTH (and maybe VDSL, if you're near the CO)
Up to 300mbps over FTTH

Hmmm but that doesn't make sense. A wireless medium is usually more expensive than a wired medium. The set prices are ridiculously cheap.

The new LTE pricing is 100GB for 90,000LL with Ogero compared to more than 720,000 LL with touch ($36*20,000LL assuming sayrafa is 20,000LL though its definitely more than that)

This explains why they are not accepting new applications. They can barely cover costs with this pricing.

You cannot put Ogero and Alfa / Touch in the same sentence and expect a fair comparison. Apples and Oranges. Ogero is providing you with a home connection through fixed LTE due to inability to lay infrastructure in difficult areas. They're not a mobile operator.

But even compared to ISPs like IDM and Sodetel, Ogero's LTE bundles are much cheaper. Not that I mind. I just hope they start accepting applications to make this whole thing useful.
