Broadband connectivity is a must for economic growth and social development and applications in education, health, banking, and commerce need to be on-line and connected. Broadband also means faster Internet and more bandwidth to upload and upload e-mails, files, videos, and pictures.
3000 more signatures are needed to put the broadband national demand in front of the council of ministers.
Please spread the message around you… Together we can do better!

But… but… we already have Broadband in Lebanon. So what is the need for the Broadband Manifesto?
No we don’t have broadband. Available offers in the market today for citizens are all limited to a speed of less than 1Mb/s. “Broadband” should no longer be used loosely to refer to such speeds. Cheaper and Higher bandwidth services of up to 100 Mb/s for citizens and businesses, and up to 1 Gb/s for businesses requesting it, should be made available in Lebanon.
In practical terms, broadband is a connection that allows users to enjoy services only possible with high speed bandwidth such as triple play (TV channel, telephone, and Internet connection at once), videoconferencing, voice over IP, e-commerce, etc. The larger bandwidth is also required for businesses that have many users or network activities such as universities, call centers, news agency headquarters, banks data centers, etc…
The Broadband Manifesto is a formulation of the needs of society for true broadband.
