  1. Hello all, I haven't moved in Turkey yet but wondering if the opening internet service for residential is easy or not. Do I need a residence permit or utility bills for the new account? If then, which one need first, residence permit or utility bills? Some say I need a residence permit to open an utility account and others say the other way. Little bit confused. Many thanks.
  2. How is the internet connectivity in Instanbul cause I need the internet to remain online. A friend of mine recommended rent n connect and Skyroam pocket WiFis let me know if anyone has had an experience with the two companies
  3. Internet Service Plans Companies offer a variety of plans with monthly to yearly payments. There are quite a few regional internet service providers in Turkey, but the main ones in Turkey are: TTNet TurkNet Turkcell Superonline TTNet is the ISP branch of Turk Telekom, the country's telephone service provider. If you choose TTNet, you can set up your internet service in the same office as your telephone service. If you want to use one of the other ISPs instead, just go to one of their local offices and apply after you set up your telephone account. Making Payments Even if you go with Turk Telekom's internet plan, you will get a separate bill for your internet service. You can pay the bill at the PTT (Turkish post office), or at any bank listed on the back of the bill. You can also have your payments automatically deducted from your bank account. Just take your bill to the bank, along with your passport and your residence permit, then keep enough money in the account to make the monthly payments. If you miss a payment, your service will be cut off. With TTNet, this will be announced on your computer screen when you try to access the Internet after it has been cut off. The announcement will have a link to an online system so you can pay your bill with a credit card. As soon as you pay, your service will be restored. See Also How to find out if your neighborhood is set up for high-speed internet: If you need high-speed internet, it's a good idea to make sure your intended home is wired with high-speed fiber-optic cables. This guide explains how to check and make sure. Telephones and Internet Forum External Links TTNet: Internet service provider of Turk Telekom. You can set up your internet service at the same time you set up your residential phone service. TTNet Internet Package Prices: The price list for what they offer. DSmart: Also offers satellite television services, so if you want satellite TV, you can combine your internet services with your satellite service. TurkNet Turkcell Superonline Doğan Online
  4. Airports Airports in Turkey have Wi-Fi access, but it's not free. When you open your browser, you'll immediately be directed to a page which asks for your credit card details to pay for it. Hotels Some of the luxury hotels in Turkey both Wi-Fi access in their rooms, as well as hard-wired Ethernet (RJ-45) data ports you can connect to with a LAN cable. less posh hotels and pensions have repeaters or wireless routers mounted in the hallways of each floor. Cheaper pensions may only have WiFi access in the lobby or community room. Before you book, check to see if free WiFi access is available and where you can access it. Restaurants, Cafes and Bars The better eating and drinking establishments, especially those with tourists as their clientele, will have WiFi available. If they don't, one nearby probably will. Internet Cafes Even small towns have internet cafes in Turkey. They charge cheap rates by the hour, and offer snacks, drinks, and tea for their guests. They usually have Wi-Fi access as well as fixed computer stations. Internet cafes are also havens for teenage boys who play video games, chat with or message their friends, and generally hang out in the hopes of meeting a girl, so they can get crowded during non-school hours. Public Areas Some cities and towns have free public Wi-Fi in public areas. Check for available connections which don't have a "lock" icon. That means you can use the connection for free, and without a password. In Kaş, Antalya for example, you can use the Belediye, or municipality, public WiFi connection whenever you are within range. Internet Access for Smart Phones and Laptops Without a Wi-Fi Connection You can access the Internet with a smart phone or laptop anywhere in Turkey, even when no WiFi connection is available. Smart Phones If you have SIM card with one of Turkey's mobile service providers (TurkCell, Vodafone, or Avea) you can use "cellular data" from anywhere in Turkey. Since your phone will can also use the local cellular towers to connect, you won't need a WiFi connection. You get some free cellular data credit when you recharge your mobile phone credit. After your free cellular data credit is used up, the system will start deducting credit from your account. To use cellular data, find the option on your phone and turn it on. It's a good idea to keep cellular data turned off when you are not using it, because your phone may connect to the cellular data network even when you think you are using WiFi. It will also automatically download your e-mail and other "push data" if your phone is set to do so, thereby using mobile phone credit unnecessarily. Turn it off when you aren't using it. Laptops Turkey's mobile service providers offer small USB devices (dongles) which connect to the internet using the cellular data system. You can purchase these devices at any of your network provider's shops. Just buy the device and load the software, plug in the dongle and let it connect, and you will be able to access the internet anywhere in Turkey. Long-distance Buses Some of the larger bus companies, such as Pamukkale and Kamil Koç, offer free WiFi access on their large long-distance motor coaches. It is not available on smaller buses used for shorter trips. Internet Security Since you'll be accessing the internet in places with an unknown level of security, here are a few ways to minimize risk: Install a firewall on your laptop if you don't already have one. This will protect your computer from intrusions. Late-model Windows and Macintosh computers have them already installed. You can also use one included with an anti-virus or security program. Whatever firewall you use, make sure you download and install the latest updates for it before you travel. Don't send sensitive information, like credit card details over the internet unless it is to a website you trust, and which is secure and encrypted. If the website you are communicating with is secure, its web address will have the prefix "https://" instead of "http://." Use complex passwords of at least twelve characters, with lowercase and uppercase letters, numbers, as well as special characters. Change your passwords before you travel. You can change them back when you go home. Memorize your passwords or use a password management program. Don't store them unprotected on your computer, write them down, or store them on the web. Theft Prevention Don't rely on your hotel's security to prevent the theft of your laptop. The door locks on most cheap hotels and pensions are only meant to keep honest people out. When you go out without your laptop, store it in a safe in your room, or in a safe at reception. If the hotel or pension clerk offers to watch it for you, ask him or her to put it in a locked room, or somewhere inaccessible to anyone but them.

  5. It's quick and easy to set up Skype. Just connect to the Internet, download the program, and run it. Next set up your profile and account. You'll select a username and password, and your username will serve as your Skype identity. You'll then be instructed to run a test to make sure it's working properly. What You Will Need Besides a high-speed internet connection, you'll need a microphone and speakers (or a headset with a microphone), and a webcam if you want to make video calls. What You Can Do with Skype Call other Skype users, anywhere in the world, for free. Make video calls if you and the other user have a webcam Call landline and mobile phones at a fraction of the price of an overseas call Send instant messages to other Skype users and mobile phones (there is a fee for sending SMS messages to mobile phones) How You Pay for Calling Landlines and Mobile Phones If you only use Skype for calling other Skype users, it's completely free. If you want to call landlnes or mobile phones, you must have credit in your Skype account. You can buy Skype credit with your credit card or PayPal account whenever you want, or you can set it up so Skype automatically deducts money from your credit card or PayPal account when you run low on Skype credit. Skype for Mobile Devices Skype also has an application for smart phones, called "Skype to Go." Because it's computer and internet-based, it uses the computer in your smart phone (not the mobile phone part) to connect to a WiFi signal and the Internet. All you have to do is find a cafe with WiFi, and Skype away. You can check the Skype website to see if your mobile device will work with Skype to Go. Call Forwarding You can even have Skype forward your calls to your mobile phone when you are away from your computer. Regional Skype Number for Non-Skype Users to Call You You can purchase a "Skype Number," which is an actual, regular telephone number, complete with the area code you choose. By choosing an area code which is the same as your family and friends, they can call you at the rates they would normally pay for calling a phone number in the same area code (usually free). Message System If someone calls you on Skype, or by using your Skype number, they can leave a message. Skype will send you an e-mail to let you know that someone has called, and provide a link so you can log in to Skype and listen to the message they left. Emergency Numbers Skype can't call Turkey's national emergency numbers, such as the national 112 emergency number. You will need a regular telephone to do that. You should consider Skype to be a complement to your existing telephone rather than relying on Skype for all calls.

  7. which parts of Antalya have high speed WiFi ( more than 5Mbps )?
  8. I must have been living in a cave for the last year or more as I never heard of this company until this morning doing some random searches for my daughter who is coming to visit next month. I called them and the woman I spoke with, in English, was very helpful. She said it works EXACTLY like a wireless wi-fi hotspot with any device including laptop, phone, tablet and up to 10 devices can connect at one time. Has anyone had any experience with them? Alldaywifi: "...enjoy unlimited mobile data in Turkey" TripAdvisor Reviews of Alldaywifi: Facebook: The photo on FB looks identical to the Turkcell VINN. Twitter: An Interview with the founders called Shelter, Water, Food, Alldaywifi "How are you able to offer this service at an affordable price?"" "By adopting a service for locals and making it available to travelers coming to Turkey, Alldaywifi can make big yearly deals with local providers and offer the best prices to travelers for shorter terms. We also improved our Alldaywifi Kit content according to our needs. When we say "Allday", we really mean it. We’ve even taken on the challenge of your smartphone battery and we are there with our solution, a high quality, pocket-sized portable battery is included with each kit." Other comments: pocket wifi rental in Turkey,anyone use this company before? "I went to Turkey last December and did pre-order a rental wifi with Alldaywifi. For 10 days, I paid EUR35. The service was great, I had good connection everywhere I went (we traveled around Istanbul and Cappadocia). Had I wanted to continue using it, the option was also available and all i need to do would be to email or phone the company. All my emails prior to arriving was attended to satisfactorily."
  9. How fast of an internet speed you can get in Antalya? Do they have any fiber optic services anywhere in the area? How can you be sure of which service you can get and not being cheated by the sellers?
  10. If anyone wishes to se UK television while in Turkey,or anywhere in the world without having to pay a monthly fee for a VPN,this may be of interest to you.As long as you use Google Chrome,you can get BBC 1,2,3,4 & ITV 1,2,3,4 in live and catchup & Channel4 in catchup. Channel 5 catchup will be operational soon,but there is a compatability problem with Google & C5 [even with a VPN C5 doesn't work]. At this moment in time it's not suitable for Android or ipad. At the moment there is just a one off fee of only £5,payable through Paypal...then Nothing else to pay...ever!!!The owner has asked me to trial it,and i can honestly say it streams perfectly,but ONLY in Google Chrome.It's an easy set up putting the file into Chrome extensions,so no big download,5 mins & it's operational. Click on the link below to go to his Facebook page & see others reviews & for the download link. I'm gaining nothing from this,just thought it was worth sharing. DEAD LINK
  11. Hi all, I live permanently in Turkey and want to sell, on-line, holiday accommodation in Turkey. There would be no office, and all the 'work' would be on-line, and payments from customers would be to a UK bank account. I am thinking that as a UK citizen, the easiest way for me to do this to avoid any work permit issues, is to set up a UK limited company - it would be me and a Turkish Citizen only as directors and there would not be any staff (other than us). Is this correct? That by doing this I wouldn't need a work permit?? I've searched previous threads and the only one I can find dates back to 2009 so wondered if there had been any changes since that advice was given. And just if anyone knows - I assume I actually CAN set up a UK company without being resident there!!?? Thanks all Wheezie
  12. Hi all-- So I've had TTNET for over a year now. During the winter, my connectivity was very bad. It seemed like it was a lot, lot worse whenever it rained. Example: some evenings I would be on Skype with family/friends and my line would be dropped as many as a dozen times in a half hour. It was very frustrating. I Turkey for a vacation in the States in June and came back at the end of August. For several weeks, the internet was sheer bliss--not one problem. I forgot all about my former internet problems. Then it rained last week, and it's been hellish since. Didn't have the internet for almost 24 hours. It was extremely spotty for several days after that. It seems much worse than i remember. I mentioned my problems to a friend and she said that she has superonline. She said that she has had only one problem in a couple years, and that they came out right away. Also, it's cheaper. She sent me a link: http://www.superonline.net/kampanya-detay?k=59&d=fiber-hiz-etkisi It is 59TL for a month with a 2 year contract. My husband is wary of the contract. We are not certain that we are going to stay in Izmir for 2 years (i.e. could move to Istanbul or possibly back to the States). It is not entirely clear what the penalty is from breaking it. Does anyone have this service? I did read other threads regarding this and it seems like others have found superoneline to be unsavory or that they just go through TTNET anyway. We have called TTNET three or four times and they haven't come out. I feel like I'm at the end of my rope with them, very, very tired of having such unreliable service. Any thoughts?
  13. I am looking into moving to Antalya in October. What are the options for internet providers and what type of speed options they offer? I also need an apartment to rent in Antalya.
  14. We live in Kaş and our Internet Service Provider (ISP) is TTNET. We asked if we should change our ISP to another company. The technician we spoke with mentioned that because TTNET is part of TurkTelekom, when we have to call one we get both. He gave an example, if SuperOnline became our provider and we had a problem, we would then have to contact TurkTelekom for the wires coming to our house AND SuperOnline for any Internet problems we might have. That would then create two headaches instead of one. It made sense to us and we decided to stay with TTNET.TurkTeleKom is the sole provider of Internet access to Turkey. They are like AT&T used to be in the United States, a monopoly. TTNET is a subsidiary of TurkTelekom and an ISP.The problems of connectivity have many complicating factors. One thing you should understand, all ISP's claim "speeds up to..." which is the catch. IF you have a great connection you can get the max that you pay for, otherwise you may not.We had our phone company check noise in the line, there was a lot. Pick up a NON-Cordless phone connected to your main jack coming into the house. If it is "noisy" with popping and/or crackling line noise, get it fixed. Once our line noise was quiet, we got better reception.We live in a village and are at the farthest point from our concentrator, a device which amplifies the phone line signal from its origin. We are more than 4 kilometres from the concentrator for our village which is the maximum distance for a copper line. Until or unless we get a concentrator in the village itself, we will never get maximum speeds for which we pay.I will list a few possible problems: Physical distance between your place and the telephone exchange (concentrator) is over 4 km.Your modem not plugged into the master phone jack coming into your house.An aluminum (bad) and not copper (good) line all the way into your house from the street lines or underground cable.Line noise on the phon lines coming to your house? The phone company is liable for checking this but ONLY to the point of connection to your house. Cable noise inside the house can be checked by the phone company or an electrician for a fee.Poor quality or old or no cordless phone filters? Fax machines, cordless phones and other electronic devices in the house can cause a lot of interference.I found these web sites which give a lot of good info about how to better your connections.BT offers to 'speed up broadband' "Broadband speeds vary for a variety of reasons, including distance from the telephone exchange. "Broadband Dropouts10 CAUSES OF ADSL DROP OUT:This article by FreedomHouse is an interesting critique of the monopoly of Turk Telekom and its government overseers."There are 150 internet service providers (ISPs) in Turkey, but the majority act as resellers for the dominant, partly state-owned Turk Telekom, which provides more than 95 percent of the broadband access in the country. Liberalization of local telephony is still pending, and the delay undermines competition in the fixed-line and broadband markets."Internet connections are made either by Türk Telekom or by private companies using Turk Telekom's communication lines.This article "Major ISP in Turkey" goes on to list Internet Service Providers in Turkey."...you may not know that reliable connectivity isn’t always possible, although it is rather cheap. Internet Service Providers in Turkey can usually provide you with 1, 3, 6, or 12-month plans of unlimited access as well as 24 hours of technical support (although this might be hard to find in languages other than Turkish)"They do not however list SuperOnline, one of the oldest providers who are now owned by TurkCell.A Public Relations release about a new service by TurkCell SuperOnline:Turkcell Superonline Provides Turkey's First Personal Cloud Service SuperDepo at an Upload Speed of 100 Mbps
  15. Let the games begin (oops they already have)... Cyberwarfare refers to politically motivated hacking to conduct sabotage and espionage. It is a form of information warfare sometimes seen as analogous to conventional warfare, and in 2013 was, for the first time, considered a larger threat than Al Qaeda or terrorism, by many U.S. intelligence officials. In France, it is reported that the US 'used malware and Facebook' to hack French president's team "The staff of former French president Nicolas Sarkozy fell victim to a hack attack while he was still in office, and the finger of blame is being pointed at the US...According to an anonymous source, Uncle Sam wanted to check that France was still on its side. You can be on very good terms with a 'friendly country' and at the same time want to be assured of its unwavering support, particularly during a period of political change, the source told L'Express." The US embassy has denied the allegations. Meanwhile back in the USA... US urged to permit self-defense retaliation on hackers "China and the United States have constantly clashed over the prevalence of cyberattacks. A recent report issued by the U.S. Department of Defense laid the blame for widespread cyber espionage campaigns against U.S. targets squarely at the Chinese government and military's feet, just as security firm Mandiant claimed that China is responsible for an "overwhelming number" of cyberattacks in February. China denies these claims, and has said that accusations are "groundless."
  16. That's my first post on this forum, so I would like to say Hello to everyone! In couple days I'm going to Turkey. I will be staying in Colakli/Side (that's not far away from Antalya) for three weeks. I wanted to ask about the possibility of using the pre-paid internet. I saw some offers on Turkcell site, but as far as I'm concerned you need to sign a contract if you want using it, and I can't do that. I need good upload speed for my job. My hotel offers me a Wi-Fi but it's kinda slow. Would anyone recommend me something? Maybe I should just buy a pre-paid card, and use my cell as a router? Or maybe there is a possibility of using USB router connected to my laptop (I hope you know what I mean)? Can you help me?
  17. As I understand it, it is not possible to pay online with your bank/ debit card in Turkey due to security concerns. One exception is that, in some cases, you can use your "electron" card on the shopping site Gittigidiyor. Since many of us expats do not qualify for a credit card for different reasons, I wonder if there is ANY way, alternative method or regular, to put money in an account in Turkey and then pay online with a virtual or actual visa/ mastercard? Mainly, I want to just be able to deposit cash and then shop online. Right now that is very difficult and I have to use other people's credit cards and it is a pain. I do have a Yapikredi bank card and account now. Is there any bank who issues non-credit cards ( virtual or actual ) that are usable online?
  18. Hello, guys.Glad to have found this website,I will get to the point. Ok this may sound stupid but i am just a sucker for love and probably, young, stupid and naive and almost always online. Am a teenager (18).Okay, when i was 16 and working at a cafe, had plenty of facebook time to chat and hooked up online to this cool Turkish guy (21) who i would chat with almost non-stop for a month before he goes quiet on me for 2 months and comes back again until i decided to put a stop to it like 2 years later. I swore not to fall for a guy on internet but guess what, i succeeded for a while until another friend request came and another Turkish guy started to chat with me.I took it casually until we discovered we are sooo alike besides religion and race of course. but we discuss freely about it, he is 19 but mature. we already make plans to marry and meet... okay yeah we are crazzy.The point is, i am sometimes scared he may start to ignore me like the former Turk love chat mate i had but he has promised to start just calling me this month as chat is getting boring for him. And i also wonder if i am fooling myself by believing someone online.I am anxious this month as he promised he will start callling me eveeryday. i want it to work out, i really do. But again if it works out i am scared that he may lose his trust in me if he discovers that in the past, i had a facebook chat mate like him. he trusted me with his facebook password and email password.This was suppose to be a short post but, i guess i dont exactly know how to express myself... last question is; am i stupid to fall for someone i never met. we have made so many plans for the future and believe me he is reallly smart from our chats. he seems like someone i can live with,Thanks again.
