Default why is the internet so bad in lebanon?

yes please can anyone explain this to me?

in europe and the US a 30 $ DSL gives you 2mb/s speed, and in other countries, they are not familiar with the term "monthly traffic limits"
what the hell? we get 2 and 3 GB quota each month?if you want to browse facebook everyday this limit won't get you to the end of the month. does it really cost the company more money if you use your internet more than that? they actualy set special packages for no trafic limits where 256 kbps costs around 40$ w they still reserve the right to take action if you strain their server too much
given the following, is it worth upgrading your internet speed in lebanon? you can go buy a 512 internet connection but according to the quota, you can use it at its maximum speed for 3 days

DSL upload is 1/4 of the download speed, it took me 4 hours to upload a 100 MB file, I messaged support and asked them 25 MB per hour is normal, and they said yes it is very good. I have a 3 GB upload limit, bas 3am yed7ako 3layyé by saying that, there is no way I can use that, even if I spend all my time uploading

and don't get me started about the ping, between 500 and 1000 ms? are they transporting the information on mules?

best part is byotla3 jibran basil and says "around 50(midré 30) 000 people in lebanon only use DSL connections" enno heyk wel connection te3béné

so why why is it like this? fhemna enno it can't be faster because the wires are old and messed up, but why the quotas? why is an additionnal 1 GB sold for 10$ ?
yes ken baddé fech 5il2é

awaiting an explanation

do you also notice how it is never mentionned by politicians? neither the opposition nor the loyalists, everyone says phone and electricity, why don't they put the internet on the map
and is everything the government's fault? can't the foreign companies that are providing the internet do anything about it?

because they can rob more money from electricity and cellphone companies than they can do from internet facilities.

very simple man we are connected through a cable with cyprus
