Israeli fixed line incumbent Bezeq has reportedly contracted French-US vendor Alcatel-Lucent to upgrade its network in a deal said to be worth ‘tens of millions of dollars’ over several years. According to Globes Online, under the terms of the agreement Alca-Lu will provide Bezeq with VDSL2 vectoring solution to upgrade the telco’s existing network, which in turn will allow it to boost downlink speeds for its broadband customers. It is understood, however, that Bezeq may yet contract another vendor for upgrades to its infrastructure, with ADTRAN, which acquired the fixed Broadband Access (BBA) business of Nokia Solutions and Network (NSN) in late 2011, cited as the likely candidate.
