My first impression is the following:

It loaded videos like 512kbps or 1mbps connection.
High latency.

I will be among the testers most probably, i will make sure next week basically.

Alfa are providing independent sims for testings and not on the same sim for testing unlike MTC Touch

Today was my first day as 3G tester and the coverage was very very weak at least from my place; it was always failing over Edge.

However, the time i was able to get signal at best i got a max download speed of 42kb/s however someone on Twitter mentioned that he reached 73kb/s without interruption with MTC Touch.

I think it should be around 1-2mbps.
Remember these are the first days of testings, besides as i mentioned above, the 3G coverage at my place was so dead.

I played Youtube videos on MTC 3G yesterday morning. It was obviously above 512kbps.

Ow, the testing accounts have a quota of 3GB/month.
As for the quota and plans, nothing has been decided yet.

Walla Ya X 3ala seeret el new PATHETIC DSL plans, I don't expect reasonable plans ( capacity limit / cost ) for the 3G service. Lebanon is always going to be ( sorry for the word ) bi teez el kheil when it comes to technology. wlak iza we needed to hack / DDOS some israeli websites ma fina !!

I'm not gonna deny the fact that we've always been behind when it comes to technology, however i totally dislike the pessimist and nagging attitude without accepting the fact that things started to change.

If you track down the reason behind the slow connection in Lebanon, you would have known that the primary bottleneck is no longer there.
Lebanon currently has access to a major international cable which hadn't been the case.

The MOT purchased 10Gbps in addition to the existing ~2.5Gbps; BUT this is just the start and we have access to more and more bandwidth to cover the country demand when needed. The quota and bandwidth will certainly increase in a matter of few months.

From the other side the internal network is totally ****ed up, the entire country is being re-wired with fiber optics and the project is supposed to see the light by the end of 2012 early 2013.
This will allow us to have better connectivity in a sense of stability, latency, bandwidth and coverage.

I won't lie to you and say that the upgrade is at the level of my wishes, however i am really glad that the dates set by the MOT are being respected and not put in the drawer for good and they're working on improving all the technology aspects.

Let's give the MOT and this government some space to prove itself; in my opinion they've been doing way better than the previous governments.

Finally, let's keep our fingers crossed to see some real improvement =)

Most of what you said is totally true and I do agree with it, however that's exactly why I am pissed off and that work should be done in 2012 before the pessimistic 2013 comes .... COZ it's the elections and things can get f***ed up but if it were to be completed in 2012 ... m3awadeen bi Lebanon what gets done stays as is.

3G will be available for pre-paid and post-paid users starting Nov 1st.
Some of the packages:

10$ = 100MB
19$ = 500MB
99$ = 5GB

Extra usage costs 4 cents / $0.04 per MB.
