Israeli cell phone giant Cellcom left millions of Israeli customers without service today after a network outage. Harsh reality for the holy land, which averages 2.1 cellphones per family.

Millions of users did not receive the standard of service they have come to rely on and for that I sincerely apologize. I can guarantee that none of us will be leaving to light the first Hannukah candle with our families until a solution is found…
