Has anyone said revolution and not received? After being threatened by the launch of the new Cellcom TV service, HOT will launch a package אינטרנט With a half-gigabit download speed in the process to differentiate itself from the market and its competitors
Bezeq, before you: HOT, Internet provider, services TV And Cellular is expected to launch next week a package אינטרנט With 500 mega-bit market-breaking download speed. In a quick translation of the speed into everyday values, you can download (legally, of course) an HD movie that weighs about 5 gigabytes at a theoretical time of about 80 seconds only, with a download speed of 62.5 MB per second.
The new package comes after a number of new Internet service providers have been established in recent months Unlimited, The Israel Electric Corporation's optical fiber project, Which builds a fiber array Across the country to provide symmetrical speeds of over gigabits. The current hot technology relies on to deliver the half-gigabyte speed of the new package is called "G.fast", Based on standard DSL lines.
The way providers can אינטרנט (Such as Bezeq) to provide these high speeds up to a gigabit per second on the existing infrastructure relies on optical fiber on the one hand, but on the other hand, using the G.fast technology, also on copper cables. Optical fibers will reach the consumer building, from which copper cables can be relied upon in the vast majority of residential buildings. This arrangement is possible only because of the short distance that the copper cables must pass, when a greater distance would not allow the transfer of this speed.
The hottest package Hot has to offer today is included in the Triple Pack "iPlatinum"Of the company, which offers services TV With 168 channels, אינטרנט Up to 200 megabit (5 megabit upload) and unlimited (fixed and mobile) phone at the price of 399 per month (109 for the first three months). On the other hand, Bezeq offers a package אינטרנט At a maximum speed of 100 megabits per second (and 3 megabits upload) at the price of NIS 119 per month.
A formal response from Hot is not yet on the subject, but we are certainly pleased to see lively competition in the Internet, with further innovations expected to come later this year thanks to optical fibers.
