Mobile subscribers will enjoy the benefits of increased mobile broadband Internet speeds in 2016 when the operators begin to provide services based on IMT-Advanced technology. In August 2015 Turkey conducted its LTE Spectrum Auction and attracted US$4.5 billion in bids. The three incumbent mobile operators, Vodafone, Avea and Turkcell all obtained licenses across the various frequencies.
While tangible 4G progress has been made in Turkey - the country is looking further ahead at the potential of 5G. For example, in 2015 Turkcell signed separate Memorandums of Understanding with both Huawei and Ericsson which will see them explore aspects of 5G development. Turkcell also signed an agreement to develop a 5G technology roadmap with defense systems company Aselsan.
Fixed broadband in Turkey is available via xDSL, cable and fibre networks. Both Turk Telekom and Turkcells subsidiary, Superonline, are deploying FttX infrastructure. ADSL is still the most popular fixed broadband platform however, despite stronger growth rates recorded for fibre and cable.
Turk Telekom is the dominant ISP and has maintained this position against an influx of competitors. Turkeys sizeable Internet user population has fostered an emerging digital economy, encompassing e-commerce, e-government, e-health and e-education services. Digital media services such as online newspapers, video streaming, social media and e-commerce are also popular amongst online users.
