DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Lebanon
– Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband – Statistics and Analyses”
report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s
Lebanon has been working on improving its fixed infrastructure in recent
years, driven by the telecoms minister Jamal Jarrah. In 2017 plans were
introduced which would see new landlines and fibre-optic networks
installed as well as faster DSL services.
We are seeing recent significant progress in this area with the awarding
of licenses which allows three existing services providers to operate
and supply FttH services to consumers, using Ogero’s government-owned
network. The pricing of telecom services has been raised as an issue in
Lebanon in the past and it is hoped that the new FttH packages will only
be moderately more expensive than the DSL based ones.
Lebanon’s telecoms market holds a unique position in the Middle East
given the level of government involvement. While most incumbents in the
region are government owned, within Lebanon, government ownership also
extends to the country’s two mobile operators.
The government-owned mobile networks are operated by private companies
in return for a management fee, with all revenue going to the
government. The two networks are currently operated by Zain of Kuwait
(Touch) and Orascom of Egypt (Alfa).
Both operators have launched 4G LTE services, underpinning a drive into
mobile broadband and presenting a strong alternative to existing fixed
offerings. The operators are also preparing for 5G and in 2018 the first
successful 5G trial was conducted in Lebanon.
The improvements to Lebanons broadband infrastructure will boost the
already flourishing digital economy as well as the start-up culture
that has attracted international interest and recognition.

The 2020 Telecom Vision project managed by the MoT will see
improvements in fibre-optic infrastructure with plans for the entire
country to be covered by 2020.
In 2018 Ogero Telecom awarded fibre-deployment contracts to three
consortiums – SERTA Channels-Huawei, BMB-Calix and Powertech-Nokia.
