A little more than three months ago, we wrote off as doomed the fiber-optic venture that promised to deliver untold internet riches at unlimited speed and unlimited freedom. Unlimited at that point was mired in internecine bickering, now standard for any potentially game-changing infrastructure initiative.
Unlimited’s limits are now being exposed by none other than the reformer-in-chief, Moshe Kahlon, as he shells out NIS 75 million to the IBC fiber-optic venture as part of the state’s commitment to support the project. He’s throwing money down a black hole. He knows it. IBC knows it. And every Israeli who’s been waiting for that last bit of fiber to liberate them from Hot and Bezeq knows it, too.
