Driven by its vision of ‘Turkey’s data should stay in Turkey’ when it opened its Gebze-based data center in 2016, Turkcell now continues with the opening of a new data center in Izmir.
With this new data center which has a white space of 2,400 square meters and an indoor area of 14,500 square meters, Turkcell claims that it has become Turkey’s largest data center and cloud services operator.
The number of provinces where Turkcell invests in for next-generation data centers will reach four upon the completion of data centers planned to be opened in Ankara next year, and then in Corlu.
According to Turkcell, its digital services, including BiP, fizy, lifebox, TV+ and Paycell, helped the Operator to attain considerable progress in its attempt to keep Turkey’s data in Turkey. The data consumed in these Turkcell services accounts for 8.5 percent of the data across its own network. This percentage will increase in the upcoming period, added Turkcell.
