Partner Communications and Cellcom Israel are negotiating the common use of the Israel Broadband Company (IBC) fibre optics venture to compete with the internet infrastructure of Hot Telecom and Bezeq Israel, Globes reported. They have decided to expand their negotiations to include an option for Partner to enter IBC as a partner. In July, Cellcom said that it had signed a memorandum of understanding with the IBC venture to acquire 70 percent of it for ILS 100 million, with Israel Electric Corporation (IEC) retaining the other 30 percent.
