Israel’s state-owned Electric Company has announced plans to increase the speed of Internet connections by introducing a nationwide, high-speed broadband network in the coming months. Exploiting the small size of the densely populated country, the effort aims to put Israel at the forefront of the next generation of fiber-optic technology.
According to Sci-Tech Today, the fiber-optic lines can provide connections 10 to 100 times faster than current speeds.
“All the developing countries that have a vision for 10 years ahead, or 20 years ahead, understand that the name of the game will be communications, broadband communications, very fast communications,” said Tzvi Harpak, a senior vice president at the Electric Company.
