Thank you Ogero!

So a friend of mine was working on his iPad last night and noticed that the internet running a little slower than usual. Naturally, he decides to run a speed test, and this is what he got.

Only in Lebanon can we provide a service such as ODSL (Ontor DSL)

I honestly didn’t believe it until I actually saw it live right in front of me. But then again, with Ogero’s track record, I’m not surprised, not the least bit… I guess that’s the reason they call it “Ogero DSL” on their website and not ADSL; it’s like they’re marketing their own breed of internet technology.

I’d laugh, but for some reason every time I try I end up tearing up a little instead. πŸ˜›

P.S. Just for the record, this friend of mine is subscribed to an “ADSL connection”, Ogero as the ISP, at 512kbps download speed and 128kbps upload speed and is located less than 2km away from the DSLAM; i.e. there’s no logical reason behind this poor service.

P.P.S. Once again, thank you Ogero for proving yourselves to be less than adequate in providing your services… a lot less!

  1. Haha. At first I wondered why the internet speed is only 16kbyte/s while I have a 125kb/s but I knew that you mean 125kbit/s which means that the real speed is devided by 8 πŸ˜› here is how you can get your speed πŸ™‚ so johnny, you was talking about kbyteps, it’s actually kbitps πŸ˜› so Ogero Damn Slow Link and Ontornet are two perfect ways to describe the internet πŸ˜› LOL


  2. Hello my firend jon, i would like to say to u and all that up/download speed at speed test not accurit, internet quick but read is wrong i show you snappic that is accurit plz send email for me to send to u


    1. I’m sorry, but nothing in the “kbps” range is considered quick nowadays, except for in Lebanon of course.

      In any form of business, you do not compare your performance only to your past performance, you compare to the current performance of other companies in the same sector as well; that’s a logical fact. If the internet in Lebanon now is faster than it used to be 10 years ago, that doesn’t conclude that it’s any good or “quick”; it needs to be compared on a global scale, then you can judge whether it is satisfactory or not.

      P.S. By the overall reactions from the general public, as well as the fact that we are ranked as the country with the slowest internet in the world, then there is no point in making any more claims of speed… we are at the bottom of the food chain, and no ISP or DSP in this country can argue against this fact.


    1. Glad you enjoyed the post… I’ve been following up with you guys as well, great work, and let’s hope that at the end of the day it actually pays off. πŸ˜‰
