Israel's Ministry of Communications has published a tender for 1800MHz frequencies, for use by 4G technologies.
Participation in the tender is open for all current Mobile Network Operators and Mobile Virtual Network Operators as well as other entities meeting certain conditions.
The bands will be awarded to the highest bids with a minimal bid of NIS10 million for each of the 8 available 5MHZ frequency bands. New and small operators may receive up to 50% discount, 10% discount for each 1% addition to their market share, obtained over the next 5 years. The tender conditions also limit the number of bands for each operator and for a 4G shared radio network.
The draft license amendment further sets coverage and quality requirements for the 4G network.
