This is an update of the Israeli telecoms market, covering mobile, fixed broadband, operator initiatives and regulation. It includes subscriptions and revenue forecasts for mobile and fixed broadband.


  • The entire telecoms sector in Israel is currently witnessing intense competition after the government passed several reforms to promote competition and lower prices for the consumer. The resulting price wars in the fixed-line and mobile markets have led to lower profits for MNOs.
  • Declining revenues in the cellular market, brought about by competitive pricing of unlimited postpaid plans, are affecting the uptake of prepaid services. Operators are turning to the data market, fixed services, and TV to return to growth in revenues and improve profitability. Increased expenditure on network development and NGA technology rollout have also caused profits to stall.
