Situated in the Levant, on the south eastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea, the State of Israel borders Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Palestine and Egypt. This relatively small, yet geographically diverse country is home to almost 8.8 million people. Israel is a land of contrasting landscapes, from the Negev Desert to the fertile Jezreel Valley and high mountain ranges in Galilee. Israel’s economy is the most advanced in south west Asia and the Middle East in terms of economic and industrial development and has seen a high technology boom and rapid economic development. The country is limited in natural resources, but is self-sufficient in terms of agricultural production and its industrial and technological sectors and tourism (especially religious tourism), form the core of its economy.
Israel is a leader in cutting edge technology, with the biggest names in tech such as Intel, Facebook, Cisco and HP setting up key offices. The country’s telecom infrastructure is well developed and Internet penetration stands at around 73 percent. There is also high mobile penetration and 5 mobile operators are currently active, meaning that competition is good. The big winners have been the consumers who have seen prices drop considerably, but operator’s margins have been squeezed. There is also currently a concern about Internet speed and that the companies’ cut backs on spending as a result of increased competition. A decrease in Internet speed could potentially affect local businesses that rely on the Internet. There is awareness that the government needs to invest in Internet infrastructure to remain competitive and it is exploring how it can expand its fibre network.
