How to test internet connection in Israel
- by admin
On the eve of the second anniversary of Israel’s “Internet blackout” , a number of companies are trying to improve internet service across the country.
According to The Jerusalem Times , the first is Frontier Internet, which has introduced Internet connection test kits in a number for the frontier area of the country, and has been doing so for the past month.
The kits have been used by several companies to test broadband speeds and data usage in the region, as well as other issues.
The kits are being used in the Israel-occupied Golan Heights, where Israel has an undeclared military base and the Palestinians have occupied the territory for years.
The Israeli army is conducting a massive military operation to retake the area from the militant group Hezbollah in 2018, and is reportedly planning to expand its military presence in the area in the coming years.
The test kits also have been utilized by Israel Defense Forces (IDF) to test their own network connections.
The tests are part of a new technology that has been proposed to allow Israel to better combat its growing cyber-security threats.
Israel’s Ministry of Communications, Communications, Information Technology, and Telecommunications has approved the use of the kits, but the ministry is not yet in a position to release details of the technology.
In order to use the kit, one must register online with the Frontiers Internet Test Center, which is part of the ministry’s information technology services.
The test center will also send test kits to the Ministry of Defense.
It’s a step in the right direction for a country that has long been criticized for being slow to adopt technology and standards that help protect against cyber-attacks.
On Tuesday, Tel Aviv’s top internet service provider, Tel-Aviv, announced that it is testing the kits for a period of three weeks.
Tel-Aviva’s decision came amid reports that the Palestinian Authority (PA) was planning to use a similar test to gather information on its Internet users. While the Israeli government has long held positive views on the internet and its ability to improve the lives of its citizens, the PA has repeatedly criticized Israel for its slow adoption of Internet-related technology, including VPNs and encryption technologies that protect users’ online privacy.
The Palestinian government has also repeatedly called for Israel to open its borders to Palestinians who travel to and from the occupied territories, and have accused Israel of blocking the movement to do so.
Last year, Palestinian activists launched a move to boycott Tel-Ave Internet Service, which serves Tel Aviv and other Tel Aviv neighborhoods.
The move was quickly pushed by Israeli lawmakers to force the Palestinians to switch their ISPs, a move that would have been considered illegal under international law.
