Turkey - Key Statistics, Regulatory and Fixed-Line Telecoms Overviews


Attention: There is an updated edition available for this report.

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. The regulatory framework is evolving to improve competition although the incumbent continues to dominate the fixed line market. 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.

Key developments:

Turk Telekom and competing telcos are investing heavily in fibre rollouts to support delivery of faster speeds and new services.

Companies covered in this report include:

Turk Telekom, Turksat, Superonline
