North Cyprus has two mobile service operators, namely KKTCell (Kuzey Kıbrıs Turkcell) which everyone calls Turkcell which is actually the parent company based in Turkey. Then there’s Telsim which is now owned in part by Vodafone. Mobile numbers generaly start with 0553, 0542, 0548 or 0539.
With regards to the communication super-highway, it feels like North Cyprus has jumped miles ahead in a very short space of time!
Just a few years ago we were all using dial-up connections, waiting an age for our computers to connect us to the rest of the world, and just generally feeling frustrated at the time it took to do anything remotely web based.
North Cyprus has a fairly up to date communications, media and utilities network, and also has some of the advanced technologies that one would expect with regard to everyday life and its requirements – such as high speed internet and mobile communications for example.
