    First 50Mb/s internet connection put online

    460,000 users to be connected
    to fiber optics in one year


    OGERO has installed 36 active cabinets (smart) to its Bchamoun central, as the first milestone in the public fiber optics project FTTX. The project includes ‘Fiber-to-the-Home’ and ‘Fiber-to-the-Cabinet’, and ensures an internet connection speed of at least 50 Mb/s.

    Imad Kreidieh, Director General of OGERO, said that fiber optic connections will be deployed at 40 additional centrals during the first half of the year 2019. OGERO expects 467,000 clients to use the FTTX network, increasing from an estimated 125,000 users by year-end 2018, Kreidieh said.

    End-users will benefit from the 50 Mb/s speed, and will get triple-play services including TV and voice. Jamal El Jarrah, Minister of Telecommunications, said that three service providers submitted their requests at the Ministry of Telecommunications (MoT) to use the FTTX to provide Internet Protocol TV service (IPTV) and video-streaming content. The MoT is still assessing the technical aspects of the requests. Jarrah said that a revenue-sharing business model will be applied, but final percentages will be determined at a later stage.

    OGERO will propose a new pricing structure for bigger internet bundles taking into account higher capacity needs. However, such a model has to be approved by the Cabinet.

    The Cabinet approved a $100 million advance to OGERO in October 2017. The FTTX will cost an estimated $283 million, and is planned to be finalized in 2022. OGERO estimates that revenues from the FTTX network can reach $1 billion in a four-year period.

    “واتساب” يقلق راحة المالية اللبنانية

    Refresh
    علم موقع www.refresh.com.lb أن المعنيين بتأمين موارد مالية للدولة اللبنانية إنما يتعاملون بجدية بالغة مع ما يصفونه بخطر الـ”واتساب” حيث انخفضت فاتورة الهاتف الخلوي أكثر من 25 بالمئة خلال عام واحد بسبب استخدام اللبنانيين لتطبيق واتساب في مكالماتهم، فيما تمثل فاتورة الخلوي إحدى أهم الموارد المالية للدولة. وتشير التوقعات هنا إلى أن هذه الفاتورة ستنخفض أكثر فأكثر خلال فترة قياسية بحيث يصبح أكثر من 50 بالمئة من اتصالات اللبنانيين عبر هذا التطبيق. علماً أن العديد من الشركات انتقلت إلى تقديم الخدمات المصرفية و”دليفري” الطعام والتكسي وغيره عبر تطبيقات خاصة بدل الهاتف وهو ما يدفع كثيرون إلى الاستغناء أيضاً وأيضاً عن اتصالين أو أكثر يومياً. وعليه لا بد من البحث عن حل لهذه المعضلة. علماً أن بعض الدول بادرت بذريعة أمنية إلى منع تطبيق واتساب على أراضيها.

    VOIP calls aren't banned in the UAE anymore. You just have to pay a monthly fee for the service.

    Monetizing or banning instead of treating it like any regular data is the same thing as both are done with the intent of monetization (through line use or subscription) ...only giving QoS garantees for a fee is reasonable in my book
