We are thinking of using Turkcell internet at home as our current provider is so problematic. Does anyone currently use it and is it easy to report any issues that you may have with it?

Is Turkcell branded as Lifecell?

Ok.
I can only speak from my experience with them about 18 months ago. I paid a year up front and can honestly say their service was extremely poor, to say the least. The Internet was constantly up and down and at one time I wa without any for 4 days. Several phone calls were met with “someone will call you back” which they never did. In the end I surrendered and changed to an alternative supplier losing about 3 to 4 months of cash I’d paid up front. I would not touch them with a barge pole but as my experience is 18ish months ago they could have improved. You really need a reply from a current user.

Thank you for taking the time to reply. I've heard mixed things so far.

Well, we have recently switched to Lifecell (Turkcell). Lifecell package is a little cheaper than our previous provider on a like for like basis.

Lifecell offered us a 12 month plus three month free package. The three months free being free upfront. The 12 months contract being paid monthly, when it becomes due. I thought this a pretty good deal.

Prior to installation a team conducted a site survey and checked signal strength. Subsequent fitting of equipment was undertaken by professional and polite guys who spoke good English. We were called to advise when they would be coming and the team arrived on time.

Internet service is good, tonight we are getting an average of 17.7 mbps from a max 20 mbps package. We live west of Karşıyaka.

Telephone comms is conducted in English.

So far, we are happy customers of Lifecell (Turkcell).
