Navigating the ins and outs of Israel’s different internet providers can be a bit of a headache, especially in a foreign language!
There are so many options to choose from, and even more than one provider to pay! What’s that all about?
Which are the fastest internet providers, and how can you choose?
Here at #IsraelPhones, we have the answers for you.
The first thing you need to know is that in Israel, setting up your internet has two steps:
1. Setting up an infrastructure for your internet provider.
2. Setting up an Internet Service Provider (ISP)
These are two different services that need to be set up, and paid separately. However, most Israeli phone provider companies, for example #Cellcom Israel and Israeli internet companies, have the ability to serve as both an infrastructure provider and ISP!
Who are the top internet providers here in Israel?
Netvision, also known as Cellcom, uses the newest fiberoptics for faster internet, and provides both services needed for internet.
Bezeq is one of Israel’s oldest internet providers, and offers both services needed for internet.
Hot Net Internet offers both services needed for internet as well.
Hot, not to be confused with Hot Net Internet, provides only the infrastructure.
Partner provides the full internet package, or can be paired with the infrastructure of Bezeq or Hot.
While setting up your internet here in Israel may seem a little daunting, with the right information, it can be a simple and easy process.
Tip: Do a little research about the area where you are currently living. Even within one city, some areas receive better internet with some providers over others. Take the time to compare the offered internet speeds and prices. Don’t be shy to ask your neighbors!
And don’t forget, most set prices in Israel are simply a recommendation. Try bartering the price down, and you may just get lucky!
