Cheapest internet connection in Israel
« on: September 07, 2011, 08:25:35 AM »
I'm traveling to Israel next week, and I need to have there internet connection, does anyone have a recommendation where it should be the cheapest. All the rentals here charge like $7-$10 per day, and thats a potion, comparing to the $35 a month I'm paying here in the USA.

Don't know if you travel often, but I can get you the following plan:
100 shekel for the SIM (can be paid upfront or over 36mos @ ~2.9 per month)
25 NIS per month. NO CONTRACT
.29 per minute for the first minute of a phone call
.19 per minute after the first minute
.18 per text

Data
Blackberry unlimited data (optional) 75NIS per month
Iphone unlimited data (optional) 70 NIS per month

In addition new sign ups are eligible for the following "Extra Plan"
50 shekel upfront (cash only). No monthly payment.
Extra plan goes as follows: for every month in which the bill total is 100 NIS or more, you get a rebate of 25 NIS the first 6 months, and 45 after 6 months.
Data plan fee counts toward 100NIS for extra plan, so you only need to talk/text 25/30 NIS more to qualify for the rebate

Thanks for that offer.

But I'm actually looking for computer connection, not phone connection. the BB service works fine in Israel, I just need a portable USB etc to be able to work from there normally.

Last time I traveled to Israel I tethered. But it took me an hour to get one email sent out. I need something more solid.

This might be obvious but there are quite a few internet cafe's over there (mainly in town,decent one at the end of yaffo towards the old city) that have decent speeds & work stations. I'm pretty sure the government supply most of town with free wifi.

There is WIFI all over Jerusalem. In fact, I am able many times to make free calls to the States using the Obi App on my iphone at an open WIFI place.

How much will just a blackberry cost me a month...Do I need to buy a phone from them or can I pick one up on Ebay? Will it work in the USA when I'm there?

Sounds like a great deal!

Not sure if BB alone is an option, I will try and find out.
Phone is not included, and there is no need to buy one.
If your phone covers US GSM bands as well, it will work. Of course there is international roaming. According to Cellcom's site it's as much as 14 NIS per minute, incoming texts are free, outgoing is 2.75 NIS.

There are international plan, but I don't think it's that much better
