Ogero Director Imad Kreidieh laid out a jaw-dropping timeline for improvements to Lebanon’s internet Saturday, all but promising speeds in excess of 50 Mbps by the end of next year – more than 10 times faster than many connections today. Proclaiming, “It is time to stop promising; it’s time to deliver,” Kreidieh outlined the state internet provider’s ambitious plan to finally put Lebanon on par with the rest of the world – or even beat it.

State-owned Oman Broadband Company (OBC) is aiming to increase the coverage of its fibre-optic network to 85% of Muscat Governorate and 30% of the Sultanate by 2020.

Lebanon’s government has approved an advance worth LBP150 billion (USD98 million) from the treasury to state-run telco and internet provider Ogero, to finance part of the imminent national fibre-optic network development project estimated to cost USD300 million overall, reports Lebanese website BusinessNews.

As Corning continues to gain the upper hand in the large carrier fiber market, like Verizon’s One Fiber initiative, the vendor has set a course to accelerate optical sales to $5 billion by 2020.

Verizon's plans to build out an expansive fiber network has driven Prysmian—one of the telco's main suppliers—to initiate a $15 million expansion of its plant in Lexington County, South Carolina.

Everywhere, high-speed broadband has become a necessity and a way to distinguish between territories - both for the general public and for businesses. Operators, governments, local groups, and investors alike are working to bring super-fast connections to as many people as possible, or even for everyone.
