GLOBES - ERICSON ISRAEL will supply 200000 smart meters to the electric company

According to GLOBES , ERICSON ISRAEL will supply 200000 smart meters to the Israeli Electric Company to be deployed in 4 cities across Israel. More of these meter will be in PLC technology that passes the information on to the electric wires and can create more dirty electricity.  About 15% of the meters , mainly for businesses , will use cellular modem and will transmit a total of 15 minutes per 24 hours (probably spread over the 24 hours, few seconds every couple of minutes).
In the article it is noted that this wider pilot come after a smaller pilot in Benyamina and Givat Ada that raised some rejections from the public over radiation, extra billing, security and privacy issues.
