With a subscriber base exceeding 50 million, Türk Telekom has been at the forefront of providing high-quality communication services nationwide.

Türk Telekom and ZTE have maintained a longstanding, in-depth collaboration that has resulted in numerous achievements in advancing Türkiye’s telecommunication infrastructure. Conducted at the Türk Telekom Ankara Innovation Center, the 3-in-1 50G PON Combo trial demonstrated remarkable 50Gbps+ downstream speeds over a single fiber.
