Telecom Minister Nicolas Sehnaoui has been tweeting all day about the official launching of the Beirut Digital District, an innovative community with state-of-the-art infrastructure aiming at contributing to the economic development of Lebanon. This is the product of a “real partnership between the public and private sectors” as stated by PM Najib Mikati.

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.

This is a great initiative but I hope high internet connections won’t be restricted to the Beirut area as other major cities are suffering from a rather slow service.
