Today there are two companies in Israel that provide infrastructure services אינטרנט
And Hot. The two companies offer similar surfing packages at similar prices, so there is not much competition or choice for private customers. Next week, a new competitor will join the Internet infrastructure market IBC

. Thanks to the optical fiber, IBC
It will offer symmetric surfing packages (including download and upload speed) at high speeds, probably 100 Mega, 500 Mega, and 1000 Mega. At first glance, these sounds like wonderful news, high speeds and a much higher rate of upload than anything available today to private customers.
Joining another company for competition is always welcome, but not all of the news is good. Infrastructure prices are not yet known and mayIBC
Will charge an exorbitant price for the launch. In addition, according to IBC
The retirement of infrastructure throughout the country can take up to 20 a year. In this context, Bezeq is still retiring Network
Her, more from 2008. Apparently, the infrastructure will be available at the beginning only to residents of large cities, especially in the main neighborhoods. Those living in remote communities such as kibbutzim in the Negev will have to wait for many years to enjoy the new infrastructure.

HOT launches new package
The infrastructure of Hot
Based on copper fibers. Using cable signal amplifiers Hot
Able to transmit information at high speed over a long distance. Following the accession of IBC
For the competition, Bhutt decided that in order to keep customers with it, it had to offer surfing packages at higher speeds. Therefore, it has launched a new surfing package - 200 MB download, and 5 MB upload.

Fiber optics from the switchboard to the communication cabinets in the neighborhoods, and from there copper cables to the private homes. In areas where theNGN
It does not exist, the cables are spread from the houses to the switchboard, and because of the distance, there is a signal landing and consequently an infrastructure אינטרנט
