Turkey’s communications market holds much potential given the size of its population. The telecoms market has been liberalised with a number of licences awarded to alternative operators and a majority stake in incumbent fixed-line operator Turk Telekom privatised.

This report provides an introduction to Turkey’s regulatory environment, significant fixed line operators as well as the country’s national and international fixed-line market and infrastructure.
Turk Telekom and competing telcos are investing heavily in fibre rollouts to support delivery of faster speeds and new services.
