Internet Access in Turkey


Internet usage in Turkey is very high in numbers and users of internet is increasing day by day. The internet access in Turkey mostly made via wireless internet connections( wi- fi). The speed of internet in Turkey compared the other countries is a bit slower because of the expensive prices of  the fast and  high speed connections.


The internet packages offered by the providers are mostly limited therefore all wifi users restrict their access to outside. When you check the wireless networks from your device(laptop, mobile phone, ipad etc.) in a busy street you will definetely find tens of different wireless connections with password protections which is actually an annoying situation.


How to connect a wireless network in Turkey ?


While almost all wi-fi networks are restricted and password protected there is a few things you can do for having a free or cheap wireless connection;


*Manyc afes and restaurants offer free wireless connection in Turkey for their guests. You can sit in a cafe or restaurant order drinks and ask for the password of their wi-fi.

The speed of internet in Turkey is not as fast as America. I used internet in many hotels, cafes, restaurants and airports though connection speed was always poor.
