#Anonymous on Sep 12, 2018 :
I have priced the internet monthly cost of 60 Mbps or More, Unlimited Data, for 200$ as a logical estimation since the top speed provided is 4 Mbps for Cable/ADSL, and 50 Mbps for fiber internet which is only provided in packages with limited consumption (example: 50mpbs, 1TB limit, for 160$ per month)
Shame
#jimmy on Jun 10, 2018 :
its not so real some item are more expensive and other are cheaper
rent is more expensive private school more expensive electricity alone will cost around 200 dollar
food are 30% more expensive than mentioned restaurant you will find some less expensive and some are really to much expensive i have lived in three country so far lebanon is the most expensive country with no work opportunity or really low salary medical insurance is really expensive and some lebanese people die on the door of hospital because they cannot affoared it 80% of lebanese people are living aboard
if you have money to spend you will find the luxury life really easy to access with wonderful nightlife beach you can pass from sea to snow in 2 hours maximum
as a conclusion lebanon is a great country but its so corapted .

Damn these are pretty cheap prices. Lebanon is one of the most expensive places to live in while getting dirt cheap salaries.

#Anonymous on Jan 21, 2017 :
Excuse me? But in which restaurent will you find water pepsi and beer for such price?! They are way higher!
#Anonymous on Mar 13, 2015 :
Your data lacks cost of eventualities which are frequent in Lebanon. Bribery and repairs let alone the missing elements of medicine and education.
#Anonymous on Feb 01, 2015 :
