The idea in Lebanon is no longer to deprive people from their freedom of expression. We're beyond that. As a matter of fact, even though acts of oppression occurred in Lebanon before, by Lebanese authorities or "visitors", it always has been a power struggle. Nothing new right?
Good internet is like basic electricity
Wrong! At least abroad, even though they have this huge power struggle *coughs nuclear ... oil... etc...", at least they provide their people (well the normal countries that is) with good internet speed and services.
Again, we are at a crossroad in this low-bandwidth-internet country, we stand here today, watching our politicians prepare a law that is a perfect excuse to embezzle more money, the perfect tool for corruption.
Greed strikes again
You see, banning VoIP applications, isn't to oppress us... it's simply to make more money from us.
This is Lebanon indeed, authority figures always thinking about immediate gain, about more money, and never ever about the well-being of Lebanon as a whole. NEVER! There is no team playing at all.
Thank you Lebanon for your telecommunications and for us being one of the most expensive countries when it comes to that with the shittiest services.
