Palestinians in the West Bank finally have a second mobile phone network after months of disputes with Israel, but with less capacity than originally planned. Wataniya company launched its network Sunday with a frequency range of 3.8 megahertz, 1 MHz below what was promised, not enough to reach all the Palestinians in the West Bank. The new company, which operates only in the West Bank, breaks the decade-old monopoly of the Jawwal network and could significantly lower cell phone costs by introducing competition.
