Israeli regulator announces draft MVNO legislation

January 29, 2009 at 19:16 Leave a comment

Israel’s Ministry of Communications (MoC) has announced that it will allow the entrance of mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs) to the country’s wireless sector. The MoC said that after considerations of reports it had requested from international analysts it believes that the introduction of MVNOs will increase competition in the market. It has revealed that several operators have already expressed an interest in the service model; earlier this month Integrated Digital Enhanced Network (iDEN) wireless trunking operator MIRS Communications announced it would consider MVNO options rather than a full network launch. The MoC has reportedly prepared a draft of the new regulations, including the main conditions and requirements for MVNO applicants. It has invited comments from industry players and other relevant parties; no date has been announced for the framework’s implementation. Commenting on the proposals Ariel Attias, the minister of communications, said, ‘The entry of additional operators to the mobile sector will change the game and will alter the balance that has prevailed among the companies in the recent years; any step taken to increase the competition in this sector, ultimately assists in reducing prices for the consumer, mainly in the private sector.’
