Turkish Internet Providers and Their Services

In Turkey, from the mobile ones to the home connection based ones, all internet providers share the same cable infrastructure, besides their own. Government originated telecommunication giant Turk Telekom is tasked with the maintenance and operation of the infrastructure reaching the four corners of the country, to every home from their originated factory. This infrastructure has been in continuous operation and development since the 1940s, paid by the taxes of Turkish citizens.

This means, although you have various options to choose the best plan for yourself, your internet connection is essentially operated by Turk Telekom at the lowest level. Your internet provider either secures the connection between you and Turk Telekom, or rents their own space in the data factories. Depending on how long you will stay in the country, or how you will connect to the Internet, you have plenty of plans to choose from.
