A new nightmare has been added to the concerns of the Lebanese. Starting at the end of this week, the cost of telecommunications and internet packages will witness a fourfold and sevenfold increase, respectively, making the cost of the Internet outside the purchasing power of most citizens.
Al-Qarm considered that changing the prices of Internet packages has become an urgent need to continue providing the Lebanese with this service.
Although raising the cost of telecommunications is inevitable to ensure the continuity of the sector, the introduction of new prepaid cards for low-income people at a value of $4.5, or about 112,000 pounds, does not meet the aspirations and requirements of a large segment of the Lebanese.
Al-Tigrini asked: Has the minimum wage been corrected, even if temporarily, so that the citizen can pay these expected increases? Was it taken into account that most of the Lebanese business today is the backbone of the Internet?
