Hi Mangrego, I find the internet ok in Altinkum, I have an adsl broadband connection that comes with a wireless router, but I have since changed the router for a better one. It is connected through you phone line, the same as England, unless you have cable i.e Virgin Media like I have in England. The cost is a bit higher than in the UK, a speed of 1mb cost me 46 lira a month (unlimited downloads), compared to 10mb from Virgin for about £18 a month.
I use my connection in Turkey for my Slingbox to stream my cable tv to my laptop, and it is very good, a bit fuzzy sometimes (during peek times) but good enough for my needs.
You can get faster speeds but cost more, and 1mb is enough for most needs

One tip about the internet in Turkey, make sure your router is installed with security on as a couple of routers I have connected to remotely have not been. This means that if it is not on people can be using your internet and that could be one user or a cafe/bar.

Yes forgot to say that, you can easily set you up your own security with password if you log onto the router home page. The only problem you might incur is it will all be in Turkish, as was mine.

You can go for a low usage broadband, I won't bother with dialup, advantage of broadband is that you can then use it to make free or very cheap calls back to UK.

Hi Mushtag

what sort of price is it monthly for broadband? would that be with TT?

Mine is with TT Net, but because it is unlimited it cost 46 lira a month but I think the packages started at about 29 lira a month
