Rami Levi Communications set to switch to operating over Partner Communications’ network?

2 Jul 2012

Israeli mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) Rami Levi Communications is reportedly close to completing a switch from offering service over Pelephone’s network to instead operating over infrastructure owned by Partner Communications. According to Haaretz, an agreement between Rami Levi Communications and Partner has been reached in principle, with the drafting of legal documents – which reportedly began this past weekend – the only remaining step in completing the deal. It has been suggested that Rami Levi Communications’ decision to affect to a different mobile network operator (MNO) has been made, in part, with a view to improving the financial terms under which it leases network facilities, which in turn will allow it to introduce calling plans featuring unlimited talk time and text messaging for a flat fee, similar to those offered by rivals. The report also notes that at present Rami Levi Communications has around 56,000 subscribers.
