The Turkish telecoms market will be driven by advanced technologies, with the launch of LTE services in April 2016 accompanying the development of fibre networks. This will grow the demand for greater usage, enabling operators to monetise their investments, as well as proposing new types of offers, such as convergence, as the market continues its maturation.
- The mobile market reached 72.76mn subscriptions in September 2015, as all three operators reported growth and a higher percentage of postpaid customers.
- The demand for data and the growing share of contract users has driven ARPU, which has increased for all three players, reaching TRY26.1 for Turkcell, TRY259.9 for Vodafone, and TRY24.6 for Avea.
- DSL continues to be the dominant broadband technology, with 7mn subscriptions out of a total market of 10.8mn, but the development of VDSL and fibre means that 62% of users access speeds of between 10-30Mbps
