Does anyone know the answers to the following questions or can point us in the direction of someone who can give the answers?
Which company provides the best broadband internet? Is fiber optic available? Can you get an unlimited package? Can you get an eight month package and finally any idea roughly of costs.
We’re thinking of installing some sort of internet but frankly don’t know where to start. Any help much appreciated.

Hi we have ttnet, we pay 62tl per month. That was 18 months ago probably more now. I have heard you can opt in and out but because we come every few months it would be to much trouble to stop and start it. So we have not looked into it. It can be hit and miss sometines. I think it was karinbea put an article on about how great turkey is for most things but internet is quite bad. Think it said Afrika has better internet. If you look under internet on this forum.
We had a problem last time we were out, so went to main office down near front and it was sorted by the time we got home. Wouldnt be without it

Hi. Looked in to getting broadband 2 years ago. Think we had to take out a contract for 12 months and could opt in and out after that. Neighbors pay 65lira a month and always fast enough for television. We piggyback off them for WhatsApp etc. out on August 9th and thinking of getting it in as Mother and her friends out early September for 5 weeks and would like television. Let us know how you get on. Enjoy

We’re not back until September ourselves but since we’ve gotten residency we figured it would be more economic to install the internet so while I’d looked into it before it involved a twelve month contract which we didn’t want - I’ll certainly let you know what transpires!

We realized that Bayram would be on my first week and places might be closed. My wife who is here since early June went and enquired last week. She was quoted 65 lira a month and installment costs. Was told she would have to take out a 12 month contract and after that could opt in and out. She never asked what installment costs were and how long it would take to install.Bought out with me a WiFi amplifier and has improved signal from our next door . Fine for WhatsApp and internet but not tv. We pay half their cost while here. Coming out March next year and someone will be here on and off for about 8 months so may install then. Best of luck with getting yours. Let us know how you get on.

We used to have mifi but no good for tv, but since we have full time internet my husband brings over his amazon stick with iptv with which you can watch anything. 2 hours ahead mind and 3 in winter. It plays up now and again but does that in britain to. But all in all great. Plus we have netflix which we sign out of here and sign back in over there also great

Hi. Wife got quote from ttnet. Neighbor said it’s wrong as they are paying 62lira a month. Off to Cesme later to stay with friends. Humid today but great to be here.

They didn’t offer the opt out option to us - but it’s so cheap compared to home I was prepared to pay for when we’re not here. I could always ask about opting in and out though - you won’t get if you don’t ask!

I HAVE TRIED ALL OF THEM WHILST I HAVE BEEN IN NORTH CYPRUS. WHATEVER YOU PAY EXPENSIVE OR CHEAP THE SPEED IS THE SAME - NOT GOOD AT RUSH TIMES LIKE LUNCHTIME AND EVENING. LAST TIME I GOT XTEND WHICH WAS OKAY BUT WHEN THE CONTRACT DATE IS FINISHED IT JUST CUTS OFF - I EXPECTED 2 WEEKS EXTRA FOR THE DAYS THAT I DIDN'T HAVE A SERVICE OKAY LETS BE REALISTIC - A COUPLE OF DAYS EXTRA PERHAPS. SO THIS TIME I SIGNED UP FOR NTHOUSE WHICH DOESN'T HAVE FULL BARS ON WIFI AND ALREADY IT JUST CUT OFF TWICE FOR NO REASON WHICH HAPPENS NORMALLY ON YOUTUBE BUT NEVER ON MY LAPTOP. IT SWITCHED BY ITSELF TO MY OLD WIFI WHEN IT WAS WEAK DURING THIS ABBERATION. ANYHOO THAT'S MY HALFPENNY WORTH HOPE ITS HELPFUL.
