Pelephone Communications Ltd. Key Developments

Pelephone Communications Ltd. Announces Settlement with Petitioners

Bezeq - The Israel Telecommunication Corp. Ltd. announced that a claim and a class certification motion filed with the Tel Aviv District Court against the subsidiary, Pelephone Communications Ltd. on grounds that Pelephone falsely represented to the public that it provided browsing services on its network at the high speed available, while the actual browsing speed was lower than indicated, the company hereby provides notification that on June 16, 2014, the company was notified by Pelephone that a ruling has been rendered in the file on the same day, approving a settlement between Pelephone and the petitioners at a cost of approximately NIS 4.5 million to Pelephone.

Cellcom Israel Ltd. and Pelephone Communications Ltd. in Talks on Network Sharing Agreement

Cellcom Israel Ltd. and Pelephone Communications Ltd. announced that they have opened talks on a new network sharing agreement that will be submitted to the Ministry of Communications and the Antitrust Authority for approval. The new agreement will be based on the Ministry of Communications' policy statement, which states that it is prepared to consider full network sharing between the carriers, except for sharing frequencies. Network sharing does not distinguish between 2G, 3G, and 4G, and therefore creates an opportunity for major restructuring in the mobile industry. The policy statement explicitly states that the carriers can share all network components except for frequencies. This means that they can greatly reduce the number of sites for all technologies, not just 4G, theoretically saving hundreds or even thousands of antennas nationwide. The policy statement allows many areas of sharing by the carriers. In general, they can divide Israel into two, promising each other roaming. Alternatively, they can optimize antennas and make new plans for deploying antennas and sharing costs.
