Turkcell Customers to Experience Higher Mobile Internet Speeds

As smartphone’s continue to invade the communication landscape, the concept of Internet surfing has travelled from ‘behind the desk’ to ‘at your fingertips,’ as people want to stay connected even while on the go. The situation is the same everywhere as mobile Internet rules, the difference being just one of degree and extent.


Turkcell, which is a prominent communications and technology company in Turkey, with 35.2 million subscribers, has also been caught in the mobile maelstrom, and is one of the first among the global operators to have implemented dual carrier infrastructure through its subsidiary KKTcell, operating in the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus.

Thus Turkcell joins the elite club of firms that have implemented dual carrier technology and is the first in Turkey and 13th globally.

This exercise is testimony of Turkcell’s ongoing commitment to allow its customers to enjoy a high speed, high quality mobile Internet experience from their handsets. Using the dual carrier technology, a new advancement in 3G/HSDPA technology, it has been able to achieve up to 43.2 Mbps speed, making Mobile Internet even more meaningful.

Turkcell's 3G network supporting dual carrier technology enables data transfer from two separate carriers, doubling the speed on devices that support this technology, compared to those that do not.

"As the communication leader, we are responsible for bringing in the most advanced technologies to the island. This new technology will particularly be felt while downloading files and mobile internet users on 3G networks will be able to see speeds of up to 42 Megabit/second. We are proud to introduce dual carrier technology, which makes a difference globally, bringing further convenience to our customers," noted Ilkan Bulbul, marketing assistant and general manager at Turkcell.

Continuing its effort to provide the latest technology to its customers, Turkcell is targeting a speed of 84Mbps in the near future.

Spare Backup, Inc. a provider of data backup and security software for smartphone’s, tablets and PCs, announced that Turkcell and Spare Backup have begun the launch of a progressive rollout of Spare Backup's mobile backup and security tools to Turkcell's 35 million mobile subscribers.
