There are three major mobile service providers in Turkey

  • TurkCell
  • Vodafone
  • Turk Telecom


All three operators go through a strict approval process before being allowed to operate, and each one competes with the others to offer the best deals. Their services have all been tried and tested by both locals and travelers, and they can be trusted.According to OpenSignal, Turkcell has the best coverage, followed closely by Vodafone. All operators offer good network coverage and Internet speeds in the main towns and cities, but that will suffer as you head towards the more remote regions. However, it’s not just a local problem. It will happen on any phone or provider you use there.
