Israel's Bezeq launches free public WiFi for customers

  • Bezeq Israel Telecom has launched the country’s first free public WiFi service as it seeks to hold on to its market share lead amid increasing competition.

    Customers who agree to securely share a small part of their home Internet bandwidth will have free WiFi access when using smartphones, tablets and laptops at hot spots across the country.

    Bezeq said 30 percent of global operators offer access to hot spots as part of their communications packages.

    As Israel’s largest telecoms firm, it currently serves over 850,000 WiFi customers.
