Lebanon to complete fibre-optics network by 2013-end

Lebanese telecom minister Nicolas Sehnaoui has announced that more than half of country's telephone substations are linked to a long-awaited fibre-optics network, and pledged to extend coverage to the remaining areas within the next six months, The Daily Star has reported. "After two years of work, the fibre optics network is ready in 170 telephone areas, and we sent a letter to [state-run telephone land line operator] OGERO to detail their financial and technical requirements to expand it to the remaining areas, which do not yet have DSL," Sehnaoui said. "The project is a part of balanced development ... and no Lebanese will be without fast Internet by the end of the year," the minister said.
