The idea to provide the Lebanese people with free internet for 1 month is being proposed in the Coronvirus’s follow-up committee as a way to keep people home in order to contain the spread of the virus.
Hence, providing free internet to keep the Lebanese entertained or able to work from home, when applicable, can materialize as a helpful initiative.
However, whether or not this policy will actually take place is yet to be seen as the country is currently facing a devastating economic crisis.
Our team works tirelessly to ensure Lebanese people have a reliable alternative to the politically-backed media outlets with their heavily-funded and dangerous propaganda machines. We've been detained, faced nonstop cyber attacks, censorship, attempted kidnapping, physical intimidation, and frivolous lawsuits draining our resources. Financial support from our readers keeps us fighting on your behalf. If you are financially able, please consider supporting The961's work. Support The961. Make a contribution now.
