Turkey has become a natural business hub for both local and international organisations, with Turkeys output 10 per cent higher than before the economic crisis, thanks to external financing and government-backed economic incentives in recent years. Investment in the countrys network infrastructure is essential in order to accommodate this growth and ensure reliable internet connectivity. By connecting to Interoutes pan-European fibre optic network, Turkcell Superonline can meet demand from the growing economy, and provide local and international businesses with access to high quality voice and data services. The partnership will provide Turkcell Superonline with dedicated bandwidth.
Murat Erkan, CEO of Turkcell Superonline said: With our Transforming silk road to the fibre road vision were building a bridge between the Middle East and Europe through Turkey, with our investments adding value to Turkey, CIS and Middle East regions. Interoute has the most advanced and dense network in Europe, providing the flexible and competitive pricing that will help us to achieve our goal of bringing high-speed, next generation network access to these regions. In addition, we are also involved in the Regional Cable Network Project, designed to develop the terrestrial network in the Middle East.
Renzo Ravaglia, EVP Service Provider, Interoute said: Due to its unique position, Turkey has become a natural business hub in Europe. Although we are seeing an increase in demand for business internet services, there has been little to date in way of network diversity. We are delighted to partner with Turkcell Superonline, a company that has demonstrated innovation in the Turkish telecoms market to introduce network diversity to this hub. It is essential that Turkeys network is protected and fortified for future European business demands.
