012 Smile.Communications, part of the Internet Gold Golden Lines group, has announced that its experimental licence to conduct WiMAX technology trials in Sderot and a high-tech business centre in Tel Aviv has been extended by the Ministry of Communications. The Sderot area licence was extended until 7 April 2009 while that for Tel Aviv was extended until 18 September 2009.
