Ms. Osnat Ronen, Chairperson of Partner’s board of directors, noted: “Partner’s Board of Directors is proud of this significant milestone that the Company has achieved. Within a short time, which included coping with the Corona virus, the Company continued to resolutely deploy and connect its independent fiber optic infrastructure throughout the country.
This is a move with national significance for the telecommunications infrastructure in Israel and a significant improvement that internet customers connected to Partner’s fiber optic infrastructure will experience.
