You must first apply for a phone line through the phone company and then apply for your DSL connection. This option gives you 20G of download for 20 LYD. The company LTT is the only one offering DSL in Libya.

Libya Wimax

One of the most popular options is using the mobile devices of Libya Ymax. You can obtain a USB stick or a wireless router from Wimax. This option gives you 15G of bandwidth each month for around 30 LYD. You must go to one of the dealer of LTT to buy your hardware to access the internet.

Cell Phones

If you don’t need a massive amount of bandwidth, you could activate your Libyana or Madar cell phone to access the internet via 3G. This can be quite expensive if you use a lot of data but it does seem to work.
