Home internet in Israel

I would like to set up internet service so I can leave a magic jack phone at a family member's home in Israel. They do not have internet but they have cable with HOT.
Not planning on leaving a computer but would like wireless available when I come to visit and just need to connect the phone to an internet connection.
They live in Holon.
Any recommendations on who I should contact?
Which companies are better or more reliable?
How much should I expect to pay?
Thank you in advance for your help

So you are going to pay a monthly fee for Internet just for that ?
International calls are very cheap , it will cost you a lot in monthly charges ...

To save money, they should just get a cellphone. Plans with Golan and Hot offer unlimited calling AND texting to the USA (along with about 40 other countries,) and unlimited domestic calling/texting, and unlimited internet with speed throttled after 3 GB for NIS 99/month including tax. Internet will be more expensive than that after the first few months.

If you really want the internet, there are a couple of options. One is Netvision. Another is HOT. Or Bezeq.

Prices will be around NIS 170 for 12 MBS.
