Until the mid-first decade of the 21st century when it was owned by the Israeli government, Bezeq had a monopoly on landline telephony and Internet access infrastructure (ADSL VDSL2).

On May 9, 2005, Bezeq was officially privatized when 30% of its shares were sold by the state to the Saban-Apax Investment group for $972 Million. The cellular communications provider Pelephone is a fully owned subsidiary of Bezeq. Bezeq is also the largest shareholder in D.B.S.
