This morning, the Minister of Communications, Yoaz Handel, granted licenses to operate frequencies in 5th generation technology in Israel, to the companies: Pelephone, Partner and hot mobile. But despite the festivities, the road to a full 5th generation in Israel will take several more years, with the goal of full national coverage expected in 2024.
The new network is supposed to provide Israeli citizens with a broadband that will transmit, a larger capacity of data per second. The main implication is that it will be possible to transfer information without delay, which may be used for many areas where the speed of information transfer is important, such as autonomous vehicles. In addition, the network will provide an optimal solution for crowded places such as stadiums and large events where frequent network falls.
In addition, the network will do better with live TV broadcasts that will be delayed, municipalities will be able to install cameras on traffic lights that provide real-time traffic load reports, and hospitals will be able to implement a solution that will transmit the information to doctors in seconds.
Today, the two largest companies that offer packages in this field are Pelephone and Partner. Pelephone is the first company to launch the network, deploying about 250 antennas in 150 cities and towns across the country. The browsing speed introduced by Pelephone in the 5th generation reaches 1,500 megabits per second, compared to surfing at a rate of about 80 megabits per second in the current fourth generation network.
On the other hand, Partner did publish an initial publication, but did not specify a surfing speed. The other company, Cellcom, stated that during the coming quarter it will also launch the 5th generation. In terms of price levels, the two companies offer packages at a price of NIS 59.9. And you have to buy a device that supports the 5th generation network – currently it is a device from Shiomi, but soon we will also see the big companies launch compatible devices.
Minister of Communications, Member of Knesset Yoaz Handel: “We are in the midst of one of the severe crises that befell the State of Israel, most of the social processes in the Corona period are based on communication infrastructures and can only be sustainable with advanced communication infrastructures. From the first moment I walked into the office I knew this would be the mission. To march the country forward by accelerating the deployment of advanced communications and mobile communications infrastructure.
“I am proud of the accelerated processes that have taken place in the ministry, both in the fiber revolution that has already begun and in generation 5. In order to realize the potential diversity of the fifth generation, we are working to push for retirement and create an ecosystem for the advanced start-up industry for fifth generation technology in collaboration with the Innovation Authority. So from the moment of receiving the results of the tender the companies did not rest on their laurels and worked quickly in order to meet the conditions for obtaining the license.
Office Manager, Liran Avishar Ben-Horin: ‘Today we are at the dawn of a new era. The retirement of the 5th generation in the State of Israel will enable the production of growth engines and will lead to the advancement of industry, high-tech, smart cities and IoT technology. The achievement is more important than ever these days and against the background of the enormous economic potential for the Israeli economy, I call on the companies and the Israeli start-up industry to realize their potential in developments in the 5th generation environment.
“The Ministry of Communications congratulates the winning companies, which now have the right and obligation to deploy an advanced cellular network and bring Israel to the next age of technology. Additional frequencies for generation 5. The Ministry of Communications has set itself a goal that the interchanges will advance the traffic jams in order to ensure Israel’s leadership and power in the new digital age.
