The maximum speed of broadband in Lebanon is 2 megabits for a monthly subscription of $199 while in France the rate for the 100 megabits speed is $141, Gabriel Deek has said. 'Slow broadband connectivity in Lebanon is behind the success of Dubai in attracting business opportunities that should have come to Lebanon instead,' he said.
