The Israeli government on Sunday approved the “Digital Israel” project, presented by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, which aims to offer the public a wide array of digital services based on a future optical fiber grid. The infrastructure supporting the project is scheduled to be completed within two years and should allow for Internet speeds of up to 1,000 megabits per second.

“This is an important social step that will help reduce social and geographical gaps,” Netanyahu said.

The project seeks to streamline a wide array of Israeli government services and to improve public access to the country’s education, health, and welfare systems.
