Israel's Bezeq has announced in an exceptionally verbose manner that it is to lease capacity on its landline network to Partner Communications.
The leasing of DSL based services to the Orange branded mobile network will enable it to bundle both mobile, landline and TV services in one package.
Bezeq said that in signing the deal, it also hopes to alleviate anti-trust concerns being raised over its holdings in satellite TV provider YES, and will be permitted to offer bundled services of its own.
The company is also in talks with Cellcom over a similar lease agreement.
