New Telephone Cable Between Israel and Europe Opened by Ambassador to France

A new telephone cable link between Israel and Europe was opened officially here yesterday when the Israeli Ambassador, Walter Eytan, placed the first call. The multi-axial cable was laid on the Mediterranean Sea bed by a French company. It replaces the former wireless telephone connections which were often affected by atmospheric conditions and is expected to shorten the waiting period for communications and improve the quality of reception.
