Turkcell CEO anticipates ‘early 2015’ LTE launch

13 Nov 2014

4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) services are likely to be introduced in Turkey in ‘early 2015’, Turkcell CEO Sureyya Ciliv told the audience at Turkcell’s Technology Summit in Istanbul, noting that the exponential growth of data traffic in the country has made the evolution from 3G to 4G a necessity. According to online journal Today’s Zaman, Ciliv claimed that data use has increased 100% year-on-year since 3G services were introduced in Turkey in 2009. Further, Ciliv claimed that Turkcell’s competitors had previously been opposed to the idea of introducing 3G services in the country, despite Turkcell’s enthusiasm for the technology. TeleGeography notes that Turkcell’s LTE tests date back to 2011, with the cellco also trialling LTE-Advanced (LTE-A) technology in August 2013.
