Israel - Mobile Market - Overview and Statistics

Israel possesses an extremely competitive market served by five mobile network operators, Partner, Cellcom, Pelephone, MIRS and Hot Mobile, as well as number of Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNO)s.

Key developments:

Strong competition is highlighting an increased focus on operational efficiencies.
