According to data from the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and the World Bank, Turkey’s telecom prices are generally lower than the average prices in the European Union (EU) countries.

For example, as of 2021, the average price of a mobile broadband plan with at least 1 GB of data in Turkey is around USD 7 per month, while the EU average is around USD 16 per month. The average price of fixed broadband in Turkey is around USD 17 per month, while the EU average is around USD 32 per month.

It’s worth noting that Turkey is not an EU member state, but it is often compared to EU countries due to its geographic proximity and economic ties with Europe.

However, it’s important to note that telecom prices can vary widely based on factors such as the specific service provider, the type of plan or package, and the region or city in which the service is offered. So while these statistics provide a general comparison, they may not be representative of every individual’s experience with telecom prices in Turkey.

This has not gone unnoticed by the Turkey Telecom Companies, with Turk Telekom, Turkcell and Vodafone Turkey all looking towards a future where 5G will become increasingly important. In preparation, the operators have formed various partnerships with solution providers and in 2017 Turk Telekom established a 5G Centre of Excellence which will focus on the research and development of 5G in Turkey.

Turkey also has excellent international infrastructure with links to many of international cable networks due to its geographic location between Europe and Asia.
