Israeli Antitrust Authority approves Cellcom, 018 Xfone network sharing deal

31 Oct 2016

Israeli mobile network operator (MNO) Cellcom has announced that it has gained approval for a network sharing and hosting agreement with Marathon 018 Xfone from the Israeli Antitrust Authority (IAA). Cellcom noted that while the IAA had given its blessing to the agreement, it had done so only subject to the annulment of ‘a certain provision’, though no further details were provided on what this was.

Despite the IAA having given the green light for the deal, the proposed network sharing deal between Cellcom and 018 Xfone still requires the approval of the Ministry of Communications.
