At the end of 2021, Tel Aviv officially became the most expensive city in the world, after jumping four places in the cost of living ranking of the Economist Research Unit compared to the previous year. 

The non-stop price increases are across a broad range of consumer goods: electronics, food, housing and utilities. This is why, in recent years, more and more Israelis have started looking for cheaper alternatives in every possible area to reduce high family expenses as much as possible.

Less-expensive alternatives can be found almost everywhere. The cable companies, for example, have issued discounted basic packages in recent years, while many airlines offer discounted low-cost flights, and in the cellular world, there are also significant price drops, certainly compared to the high prices we used to pay in the past.

The cellular revolution that occurred several years ago completely changed the rules of the game and significantly lowered prices of various cellular packages. Being able to simply transfer one's number from company to company without cost has contributed greatly to this, as well.

Since that revolution, there has been a sense of calm in the market, but this is absolutely not the case. Walla! Mobile decided to take the revolution one step further, break the market and offer cell phone packages with crazy launch deals of only NIS 10 per month for the first three months only, potentially saving families hundreds of shekels annually.
