Türk Telekom Orders 600,000 More DSL lines from Alcatel

Türk Telekom, the incumbent telecom operator in Turkey, awarded a multi-million EUR expansion contract to Alcatel to supply 600,000 DSL lines. The broadband network extension, which comes on top of the 200,000 DSL lines delivered last year by Alcatel, will enable Türk Telekom to expand its service coverage to remote sites throughout the country. Over the past years, Alcatel has supplied the majority of Türk Telekom's core Internet infrastructure, referred to as "TTnet", 100% of the narrowband access network, as well as the majority of the DSL network.
