Israel's Pelephone chooses Ericsson for 4G LTE network
Israeli mobile operator Pelephone signed a deal with Sweden's Ericsson to supply equipment and build a fourth-generation (4G) network, its parent company said on Wednesday.


Bezeq Israel Telecom, which controls Pelephone, said in a statement to the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange the LTE network will also support 4.5G technology called LTE Advanced.


Pelephone, Israel's third-largest mobile operator, intends to launch the network with hundreds of sites within three months, subject to regulatory approval. (Reuters)
