Internet Usage and Marketing Report


Israel - officially the State of Israel - is a country in Western Asia located on the eastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea. It borders Lebanon in the north, Syria in the northeast, Jordan in the east, and Egypt on the southwest, and contains geographically diverse features within its relatively small area. Also adjacent are the West Bank to the east and Gaza Strip to the southwest. Israel is the world's only predominantly Jewish state with a population of about 7.2 million people, of which approximately 5.62 million are Jewish. The largest ethnic minority group is the segment denominated as Arab citizens of Israel, while minority religious groups include Muslims, Christians, Druze, Samaritans and others, most of which are found within the Arab segment. In November 1947 the United Nations decided on partition of Palestine into a Jewish state, an Arab state, and a UN-administered Jerusalem. Israel declared independence on May 14, 1948 and neighboring Arab states attacked the next day. Since then, Israel has fought a series of wars with neighboring Arab states. International borders remain in dispute, however Israel has signed peace treaties with Egypt and Jordan, though the conflict with the Palestinians has not met with success so far.

Israel Telecommunications Premium Reports

Israel Fixed Line Market, Broadband and Digital Media Overview and Statistics
Israel has one of the highest household broadband penetration rates in the world, building on even higher Internet penetration. Market competition is fierce, both between cable and DSL infrastructures and between ISPs. Israel’s very high broadband penetration rate provides great potential for triple play and digital media market developments. Both Bezeq, together with its satellite TV subsidiary YES, and HOT, the merged operating entity of the three Israeli cable TV companies, have the potential to easily deliver triple play services, as each possesses both content and delivery mechanisms. This potential has yet to be realised. See report Table of Contents


Israel Key Statistics, Telecommunications Market and Regulatory Overviews Israel has made excellent progress in opening up its telecom sector to competition. Since the mid-1990s, four mobile operators, six international service providers, three regional-monopoly cable TV providers as well as a satellite TV provider, all facility-based, have been issued general licences, and over 200 special licences have been issued for the provision of value-added services. The market is dominated by fixed-line incumbent Bezeq, which is in process of being further privatised after previous failed attempts. This report provides an overview and analysis of the Israeli telecom market and includes the latest available statistical data on the major market segments. In addition, this report covers key regulatory issues such as privatisation, liberalisation and interconnection. See Table of Contents


Israel Mobile Communications Market Report
This report gives an overview of Israel’s highly developed mobile telecoms market, which has one of the highest penetration rates in the world. The difficulties of growth through new customer acquisition and voice tariff competition have led the operators to focus on mobile data as a source of revenue growth but so far without success. Third generation services have been launched by the three major operators and even faster HSDPA has been introduced into the market. Success in selling mobile content and applications is essential to combat falling revenue, profits and ARPU. See more here
