Golan Telecom triggers cellular price war

After upstart mobile service provider Golan Telecom last week launched a promotion for two months’ free unlimited cellular service for new customers if they sign up by the end of this month, its competitors have responded with their own promotions. Pelephone and YouPhone matched the offer with their own offer of two months free. Hot Mobile reintroduced a different deal, which doesn’t provide two months free but instead offers the first four months of unlimited service at NIS 49 per month. The 012 Mobile division of Partner Communications entered the fray with the first six months of unlimited service at NIS 59 per month. After the promotional periods are up, all of the companies will charge NIS 98 or NIS 99 per month, except for YouPhone, which has a NIS 79 monthly rate. ‏(Amitai Ziv‏)
