Partner updates transmission services agreement with Bezeq

19 Apr 2012

Israeli cellco Partner Communications has announced that it has inked a five-year agreement with local fixed line incumbent Bezeq, effective as of 1 January 2012, for the supply of transmission services for use in Partner’s mobile network. The mobile network operator noted that the deal replaces an earlier agreement between the parties dating back to 2008. Partner has said that it considers the deal ‘an additional part of the overall process of upgrading its cellular network, enhancing the network quality, increasing the browsing speed and the implementation of fourth generation services’. Together with the use of its own transmission network the cellco says that the transmission services purchased from Bezeq should ensure that it meets its transmission requirements at an improved cost over the five-year period.
