Should I Drop my DSL Connection Till Fiber Optics are Here?

Again after I was nonetheless dwelling with my dad and mom, our Ogero DSL connection was unhealthy as a result of the cables are outdated based mostly on what the Ogero individuals advised me again then (2011?). Once I moved to Jeita in 2015, I may barely get 1.7Mbps as a result of I’m removed from the web station in Zouk Mosbeh, however I used to be nonetheless happy with the connection so long as it stays the identical.

Sadly, I’ve reached some extent the place I’m severely contemplating dropping my DSL subscription as soon as and for all. Within the final 12 months, my line stopped working not less than three occasions, the web retains on disconnecting and I’ve spent greater than two months with none web. I modified all of the wires linking to my home, Ogero individuals modified the cables of their field a few occasions already, I even modified the DSL modem and that is the connection I ended up with:

I feel the above pace take a look at outcomes are sufficient proof to place ex-Ogero head Abdel Menhem Yosusef in jail as a result of it’s longer acceptable to have such web speeds within the 21st century.

Why didn’t I cancel my DSL subscription but?

If I wasn’t conscious of the change in Ogero administration and the shit that Abel Menhem left behind, I’d have cancelled my plan very long time in the past however I’m actually hopeful this new group will convey change and there was a significant enchancment on many ranges however sadly not when it comes to web speeds, which issues probably the most. The brand new plans and open speeds introduced are superior and I’m positive these in Beirut and close to the Ogero stations will profit however this isn’t sufficient! EVERYONE ought to have entry to a good web and by that I imply not less than a 2Mbps connection. I dwell in Jeita, not in some distant village on the borders to have such a shitty connection and I’m positive many can relate. A buddy of mine lives in MonteVerde and his line was f*cked by contractors who work with Ogero and it hasn’t been fastened since then, one other buddy in Mansourieh can not get greater than 1 MBps at his place and the record goes on and on.

This being mentioned, I’m absolutely conscious of the work load on Ogero individuals nowadays however one thing must be finished to handle points extra shortly and extra effectively. Furthermore, Ogero ought to provide options till they’re in a position to deploy fiber optics in all places. I’ve a 30GB plan on my Alfa line and one other 6GB plan on my Contact line and I’m at all times over quota which is ridiculous. Talking of options, I used to be advised to offer Join a attempt to received the 5MBps plan they provide however I returned the gadget after three days. It stored disconnecting, I by no means received 5Mbps and it wasn’t working more often than not, they tried to repair the issue for 3 days however couldn’t determine it out.

Subsequent week, I’m altering my plan from the $50 limitless 2Mbps to the most cost effective one accessible as a result of I’m losing my cash proper now. If I can’t get my DSL line fastened within the subsequent 10 days, I’m canceling my DSL as soon as and for all and switching to a 4G modem.
