This is not new information … but the headline rocks ! The biggest piles of deception always lead to Britian … and British deception is everywhere … If one examines the ‘jewish mudline’ via Paternal and Maternal DNA … it’s a safe bet that 2 billion folks on this happy little planet have so called ‘Jewish’ ancestors … but they want the general public around the world to think there’s only 20 million …. SURE, those are probably the 20 million with all the aces up their sleeves … the big bankster controllers that love bankrupting simple hard working folks in cunttrees like the USA ! Oh, that’s right there was a video by a seasoned jounalist 7 years ago informing people that Britain was under Talmudic Law … and everyone was laughing … Oh, that’s right they got all the US Corporation Presidents on their puppet strings, too … Just ask Trump ! He was all too happy to sign papers proving it ! WE NEED A NEW WORD for British Jews pretending their not just royal gypsies … JEWTISH … THE JEWTISH EMPIRE … OR REALM … OR BRITEWS … YEAH, AMERICA BETTER WAKE UP AND START PRINTING THEIR OWN GOD DAMNED COINS … SEND THESE TRICKY BASTARDS TO A GHOST CITY IN CHINA .. OH, THAT’S WHERE THEY PLANNED TO RELOCATE WHILE THEY DEPOPULATE THE AMERICNAN PLANTATION … Try Not To Swear ! #FuckBritian #FuckIsrael #FuckThePirates #FuckAllYouDumbAmericans Did we forget anyone ?

Well whaddya know. Not only is Israel “lagging behind” on internet speeds (it appears they are still using 3G based on the speeds reported in the article below), they are also still running copper wiring into the homes of Israelis providing the most protection from non-ionizing radiation frequencies. Lucky thing for the Israelis that their government is not trying to kill them, as opposed to say, the American government, which estimates the elimination of at least 2/3 of the American population by 2025.
Interestingly, the first video at the bottom of this post indicates that Israel is the creator of 5G technology. So it’s a curious thing indeed that they would be installing it only in non-jewish nations.
Hmmmmmm…… you don’t suppose they’re trying to kill all non-jews do you?
Source Article: Slowdown Nation: Israel lags on internet speeds, choked by lack of competition https://www.timesofisrael.com/slowdown-nation-israel-lags-on-internet-speeds-choked-by-lack-of-competition/
The Startup Nation has slow internet.
In fact, not only is Israel’s internet speed slow, it is also increasing more slowly than other countries’. A lack of competition in the market means there is little incentive for the only two major suppliers to invest in costly infrastructure, resulting in Israelis not having the speed they need in a world that is becoming increasingly digitalized.
According to a report published last month by M-Lab that looked at internet speeds from June 2017 to May 2018, Israel ranks 70th out of 200 nations surveyed, and is losing pace compared with other nations.
The nation has an average download speed of 7.64 megabits per second, well below the global average of 9.10 Mbps, for the period studied. In the same period a year earlier, Israel ranked 60th out of the 189 nations surveyed, with an average download speed of 7.2 Mbps.
Israel’s internet speed is listed among the lowest for European states, just above Bosnia and Herzegovina, ranked 71.
Montenegro (74), Georgia (77), Albania (86), Turkey (91) and Armenia (107) were the only European countries that came in below Israel and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The data for the report was collected by M-Lab — a partnership between New America’s Open Technology Institute, Google Open Source Research, Princeton University’s Planet Lab and others — and compiled by Cable.
“There is a lack of investment in infrastructure,” said Lavi Shiffman, a member of the board of the Israel Internet Association, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the use of the internet for research and collaboration. “If you don’t march forward you go backward.”

It takes 1 hour, 29 minutes and 21 seconds to download a typical HD movie in Israel compared to 11 minutes and 18 seconds in Singapore, according to the report.
For the June 2017- May 18 period, Singapore topped the ranking, unchanged from the same period a year earlier, with a 60.39 Mbps average download speed. Yemen was at the bottom of the list for both periods, with an average download speed of 0.31 Mbps.
“It is difficult to actually rank internet speeds, “said Shiffman. There are many methods of calculation, he said, each yielding different averages. But even if the numbers could be quibbled about, “it is clear that we are not in a good place, and much lower than what we’d expect from Startup Nation” — with all its high tech, cybersecurity and artificial intelligence prowess. “We are not where we should be.”
The need for speed
As more things become connected to the internet — from smart cars to smart homes and fridges and TVs — faster internet speeds are needed for their use to be efficient. And research has shown that an increase in internet speed, through the penetration of fixed broadband, helps boost economic growth.
According to a 2009 World Bank study, a 10-percentage point increase in fixed broadband penetration would increase GDP growth by 1.21% in developed economies and 1.38% in developing ones. Broadband internet could have a positive effect on the economy, including the creation of new jobs and new small and medium-sized businesses, a June 2017 Knesset research department paper (Hebrew) said.
“Internet today is not a luxury, but a utility. We need it just as we need electricity, gas and water,” said Shiffman.
“Speed means opportunities,” said Oleg Brodt, chief innovation officer of the cybersecurity unit at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (Cyber@BGU) and the R&D director for Deutsche Telecom Innovation Labs Israel. Users are moving to the cloud to perform their calculations and store their data, and to do that they need high internet speeds.

“Without the necessary speeds, the whole cloud economy gets hit,” as does the self-driving car revolution, since these cars need high-speed internet for the constant transmission of data to the car operators, he explained. “As a country, we cannot be in a situation in which we cannot be ready for these revolutions.”
In addition, because of slow internet speeds, Israel’s startup industry has not been able to jump onto the internet streaming bandwagon — as Sweden’s Spotify Technology, US media services provider Netflix and video-sharing website YouTube have done.
“We are Startup Nation but we have very few startups of services based on internet speed,” he said.
What’s the holdup?
The low speeds, and the lack of rapid progress, can be attributed to an absence of competition in the market and to the failure of the companies that rule the market to spend the money needed to deploy the infrastructure necessary for an upgrade.
The 2017 Knesset 2017 study mentioned above showed that in 2002-2015, investment in communications infrastructure in Israel declined by 36%, whereas investments in transportation, energy and water infrastructure grew 81%, 57% and 165%, respectively.
Israel’s internet industry is controlled by two companies — telecom giant Bezeq and Hot Telecommunication Systems Ltd., a cable television and telecommunications provider. These two firms control some 95 percent of the internet market, according to the Israel Internet Association. They have also been granted licenses to roll out fiber-optic networks.
Fiber-optic networks use light signals beamed along hollow cables rather than electricity along copper wires, as the current systems use. Fiber optics can offer download speeds of several gigabits per second, compared to current speeds, which are measured in tens of megabits per second.

In 2009, Bezeq launched its Next Generation Network project (NGN), which laid fiber-optic cables as close as it could to homes and offices, but the so-called “last mile” — the portion of the network that reaches into consumers’ premises — still consists of copper cables. These copper cables slow down the network, and the further the fiber-optic cables are from the premises, the slower the speeds.
Today, all of Bezeq’s customers have been connected to the NGN network, which provides speeds of 40 to 100 Mbps, according to company data. In addition, the company has deployed fiber optic cables to the home networks of 60% of its customers, but has not activated the network, nor has it performed the intensive manual work to connect it to homes and offices.
Bezeq has claimed that it is expensive to activate the system and is still debating what technology it should use to bring it online. It also says it is waiting for the regulator to set out the service terms for the network’s operation.
Meanwhile, Hot boasts it can provide customers with the fastest internet in Israel with speeds of 200 Mbps, but, according to a Channel 10 TV report, these are not fiber optic cables, and so the speeds enjoyed by its 700,000 customers are way below what they could actually be.
A spokeswoman for Hot did not respond to phone calls and text messages seeking comment.
No incentive to invest
There are a number of reasons Israel doesn’t have fast internet, explained a former Communications Ministry official.
First, rolling out the networks and activating them is far more expensive and less cost-effective than originally thought, due in part to Israel’s relatively small population. For cities like London and New York, which could have thousands of customers per building, the effort and expense are more worthwhile.
In addition, the official said, the duopoly controlling the fixed line telecommunications market has no competition and no real incentive to spend large sums to deploy the new systems.
Furthermore, the controlling shareholders of the two firms have been mired in debt, said the official, making it less attractive for them to invest in infrastructure when they could be milking their companies for dividends instead.
The controlling shareholder of Bezeq and its former chairman, business tycoon Shaul Elovitch, who is also reportedly a friend of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, is embroiled in a fraud probe by the securities watchdog and the police for alleged dodgy dealings with the Communications Ministry and favorable treatment by its managing director, appointed by Netanyahu, who also headed the ministry at the time. Other Bezeq officials, including its chief executive officer, have also been involved in the probe and have since resigned, including Elovitch himself, who reportedly owes nearly NIS 1 billion to banks.
All of those involved in the probe, including Netanyahu, have denied any wrongdoing or impropriety.

Meanwhile, the French and Israeli billionaire founder of Hot Telecommunication, Patrick Drahi, who has also made a series of debt-fueled acquisitions around the world, is seeing his global telecom provider Altice NV struggle with debt.
To be sure, rankings vary according to the agencies that compile them. According to an internet speeds report by Akamai Technologies, for the first quarter of 2017, Israel ranked 33 out of 148 global nations, with an average connection speed of 13.7 Mbps compared with 28.6 Mbps for South Korea, which topped the ranking, followed by Norway, with a speed of 23.5 Mbps.
In an emailed statement to The Times of Israel, Bezeq said: “Bezeq is the only entity that can speed up surfing speeds via the optic fibers for each and every home in Israel, from Kiryat Gat to Eilat, as opposed to other telecom firms that connect just the wealthiest towers and homes in Tel Aviv and high-tech areas in the center of the country.”
Bezeq has laid out its initial infrastructure of fiber optic cables throughout the country “with an investment of hundreds of millions of shekels,” the statement said. “We will continue to invest, and will activate it as soon as possible” and as soon as the regulator determines the terms for the service.
“Bezeq will connect both the periphery and the center of the nation to the fiber optic network, as soon as it can,” the statement said.
Efforts by the regulator to inject competition into the market have failed, even as the government poured some NIS 150 million ($41 million) into a fiber-optics venture that aims to bring the fast internet speed revolution to Startup Nation.
