I coming down to Lebanon in a few days and I need to get a phone line with 3G to use on my iPhone. Which telecom should I go with?
Both are having problems with their 3G. MTC lately smsed all its users apologizing for the disconnections.
I have Alfa and I am having problems too. I say go for MTC cause they have a better customer service.
Does 3G work in all areas? Like in Seheili for example?
It worked the few times I tried but it goes on and off a lot.
I live in Seheili and it works like 2/3 of the time, otherwise i get regular edge. It’s because seheili isn’t covered but zouk mikael, jounieh and zouk mosbeh are.
i am using Mtc, i had no problems with the connection except for the first 2 days (i think its the location is important) but i went to Ain saadeh last week, there was no 3g there ! you can check the coverage map on the mtc3g website http://www.mtc3g.com/
cool thanks for the link
problem with their map though is i can’t tell how far in i am. all the coastal areas have coverage but i’m in just not very in. hmmm
Chaklo el 3G taba3ak Bateee2 :P
Both sucks!!! Really slow crappy service! As for the 3g, they really have no clue what a 3g is, its practically the same speed as the previous Edge service, which sucked anyways. Mark, whichever telecom you choose, expect shitty service!
I think you’re a bit extreme on your position :)
3G is still unstable but it has been getting better recently.
I get some pretty decent speeds that equaled what I used to get in the US.
Customer Service can definitely get better but well that’s something that applies to most of the services in lebanon :P
Oh and am Alfa
