BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- Minister of technology and communication Safa Nasser Addin has rejected an Israeli request to license Palestinian operators to provide 3G technology via Israeli companies.
Addin said the Palestinian Authority was the only entity which has the right to license Palestinian operators.
She said it was "dangerous" to let Israel decide how Palestinian companies can use 3G.
Israel has refused in recent years to let Palestinian companies offer 3G services to their mobile customers, insisting instead that they work with Israeli mobile companies to provide the service.
