Hot Israel in fresh merger talks with Cellcom - report

Wednesday 4 December 2019 | 08:28 CET | News

Hot has at the same time not given up on a merger with Partner Communication, which itself is preparing for the possibility that Hutchison will not be granted a permit to renew its control of the company. This would force Hutchison to sell its holdings in Partner to another concern.
