What ever happened to the Palestinian 3G deal?

After long months of negotiations with the support of the United States State Department and Quartet, Israel and the Palestinian Authority signed a deal on November 19, 2015, to enable Palestinian telecommunications companies to offer 3G services in the West Bank. Upon its announcement, the agreement was touted as a major step forward for the Palestinian telecommunications sector and an example of Israeli-Palestinian cooperation, which would pump hundreds of millions of dollars into the Palestinian economy.

However, more than a year after the signing ceremony, the agreement has not been implemented, leaving Palestinians in the West Bank without 3G services, as the rest of the world prepares to welcome 5G services in 2018.
