Lebanon's state-owned internet company Ogero awarded a USD 283 million fibre-optic project to three companies, reports the Daily Star. Serta Channels-Huawei, BMB-Calix and PowerTech-Nokia will build the rest of Lebanon's fibre-optic network, connecting the already-complete fiber backbone to streets and homes throughout much of the country. Once completed in 2020, the network promises to bring speeds of at least 50 Mbps to the vast majority of Lebanese internet users, more than ten times faster than many connections today.
