Broadband finally arriving to Lebanon?

I just read this article on Agenda Culturel (french – click here for the english translation).

Apparently they are going to start laying the fiber optics cable required to deliver fast broadband to Lebanese internet users. The article says we should receive speeds of 15Mbps soon.

With all the political problems and the fact that there is no government to approve the future steps of the plan I doubt this will happen, but we can only hope!
