The Beirut Digital District is a 10-year project that was launched last year. The first building opened is in Bachoura and is 5000m2. Six other buildings will follow and all will be provided with 4G speed and fiber optic internet connections by the Telecom ministry.
Let’s hope the political differences won’t stop the execution of this project. Added to that and like I stated in my submission to the Lebanese Bloggers competition, The Telecom ministry in collaboration with the private sector should fund the creation of internet hubs inside educational establishments (schools, universities) before coming up with districts to the private sector and entrepreneurs.
