4G LTE Frequency Bands
Pelephone (פלאפון) is a mobile network operating servicing Israel. The company began operations in 1986, the first mobile network to operate in the region. Pelephone was formed a year earlier in 1985 as a joint venture between Motorola and Tadiran after the securing of a government contract to provide telephony services to the region. Israeli-owned Bezeq began acquisition of the company in 1994 when it secured 50% stake in Pelephone, and in 2004 wholly acquired the company, buying out Motorola's remaining stake.
The company provides 2G CDMA services over a 800 MHz frequency, and launched 3G UMTS over B1 (2100 MHz) and B5 (850 MHz) in February 2009. Its 3G service was upgraded to HSPA+ in May 2010 and DC-HSPA+ in December 2011. 4G LTE began in August 2014 with the refarming of 2x5 MHz of B3 (1800 MHz) spectrum previously used for GSM.
