Lebanon improved its ranking from 66th to 63th in GCI 2019.
Lebanon has performed well in mobile broadband penetration, scoring 7. Both smartphone penetration and mobile broadband affordability have improved. Internet usage and computer usage reached new highs this year. However, Lebanon is still behind in advanced ICT.
Less than 10% of mobile users in Lebanon are able to use 4G/LTE connections. Moreover, 3G coverage is still poor in several areas. Given that the infrastructure is already in place, Lebanon should focus on installing more new sites and expanding their coverage to all Lebanese territories.
