Lebanese real-estate firm Solidere has launched a100 Mbps fibre optic network in parts of Beirut’s central district, according to a report from Lebanese newspaper, The Daily Star.

While the network, which is capable of supporting services such as IPTV, was constructed earlier, but was only ready to be launched commercially after Lebanon’s recent internet upgrade.

Mounir Douaidy, general manager, Solidere, said the network would open up new services for business in the area. He added that an advanced cloud service, offering secure data backup, would soon be available for firms based in the central district, offered by Microsoft, the report added.

Lebanon’s government issued a decree in 1998 allowing Solidere, a private development company responsible for the reconstruction of Beirut’s city center, to establish an independent Internet network, according to The Daily Star.
