Mobile Internet speeds in Israel are slower than in most other countries in Europe and North America, but mobile operators say the data rates they offer are reasonable.
In a mobile Internet speed benchmark conducted by Tel Aviv University’s Internet Institute, data speeds ranged from 1.1 Mbps (megabit per second) in Israel to 1.3 Mbps (Mbps) in Switzerland.
Israel’s average speed was just over 1 Mbps, but data rates in Tel Aviv ranged from 30 Mbps to 100 Mbps.
According to the study, which is based on Tel Aviv Internet subscribers and data usage, the average speeds in the Tel Aviv area averaged around 20 Mbps (20 times slower than the average speed in Switzerland) and data rates were even lower in Tel Haifa (15 Mbps) and Jerusalem (10 Mbps).
But the researchers say the speed in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv is also significantly slower than average in Israel, as the city’s internet users use the internet only for a handful of applications, such as social media and browsing.
In Tel Aviv, internet users who access the internet for more than a few hours a day are required to have an internet service plan.
This is a requirement that is set at 50 megabytes of data per month.
In other words, an internet user in Israel would have to pay at least 50 MB for the entire month.
The study also found that in Jerusalem, mobile data speeds averaged around 1 Mbps (1.1 times slower) compared to the average of 3.7 Mbps (3 times faster) in Tel Beni.
In Tel Aviv as well, mobile Internet speeds ranged between 1.4 Mbps (about 5 times slower in Israel) and 4.1 (about 10 times slower).
In Tel Benic, which has a population of nearly 300,000, data rates averaged 4.6 Mbps (5 times slower), and in Jerusalem 4.3 (about 7 times slower.
Mobile data speeds are usually more than double what the average consumer in most parts of the world is willing to pay for.
A 2011 survey by the UK-based mobile telecommunications company GSM Insights found that a mobile data plan costs up to 70 percent more in most countries than it does in Israel.
In other words: A typical American family could be paying about 50 cents for a monthly mobile data package in Israel that includes 4 GB of data for just one month.
This would be cheaper in most cases than it would be in most of Europe and most of North America.
However, the Internet Institute study notes that most of the data packages in Israel offer data speeds between 1 Mbps and 4 Mbps (a speed that is much faster than the 4 Mbps average of most other European countries).
The average speed for Tel Aviv users is closer to 5 Mbps (more than 10 times faster than average speed).
In Israel, mobile internet speeds have remained fairly consistent since 2008, with speeds in Tel Alon averaging around 2.3Mbps (2.6 times slower compared to 4.2Mbps in Switzerland).
In Jerusalem, however, the rate has been much lower, averaging around 0.7Mbps (1-2 times slower depending on location).
In Tel Ha’ir, it averaged about 2.1Mbps (3.2 times faster).
As noted by the Tel HaFes website, there are various ways to access the Tel Benim internet.
Some of these services include mobile hotspots (mobile hotspots are essentially portable wireless networks), internet cafes and broadband hotspots.
Tel Haifa residents also have access to a variety of services that are limited to a select group of users, such a mobile cellular internet, which costs $10.50 a month.
These services include internet cafes, which have wireless hotspots that can be connected to the internet and can be used to stream video or download applications, as well as cable and wireless Internet services.
For its part, Tel Aviv’s mobile internet providers have been slow to increase their speeds, with data rates averaging around 10 Mbps (less than 2.2 megabits per second), according to the report.
The Jerusalem Post reported last week that Tel Aviv residents are receiving a cut of up to 20 percent of the internet speed of those who subscribe to Tel Aviv Telecom.
According the Jerusalem Post, Tel Shamans, a mobile telecom provider in the city, said that they had been forced to cut their internet speeds due to “pressure from the municipal authorities.”
Tel Shamans said that the move was necessary because of an increase in data usage due to the Tel Rumeida and Tel HaRima Internet Projects.
Tel Sham, which offers mobile internet service in Jerusalem’s Tivon area, had received an additional 50 million shekels ($16.5 million) in funding from the government to speed up the speed of its data network in the capital.
Tel Sham said that Tel Rumesi and Tel Rima have been built to provide high-speed broadband access to all Israeli citizens.
However, it added that the new Tel Sham Internet Protocol has limited speeds compared to
