Better Internet for Everyone in Lebanon

Lebanon Chapter

In Lebanon, the daily challenge is the peak time when the internet user’s consumption outgrows the total bandwidth capacity and the quality of service is degraded for shared bandwidth offerings and constituting of more than 90% of the residential internet market. Our project is a new business model for shared bandwidth offerings, consisting of a different pricing model based on the time of use as well as a subscriber panel to monitor service quality and accountability. The proof of concept will be tested first with up to 10 local community WISPs and later with other developing countries and ranging from 50 to 1000 subscribers. Comparisons will be made of aggregated graphs effects, consumption behavior, old vs new ISP revenues and finally Community polls to evaluate the new model and prepare to scale once proven.
