Phone installation, how long does it take?
Can anyone please tell me how long it takes to have a phone line installed in southern Turkey after making the application?

Thanks,

Phil

It can be a matter of days depending where you are talking about. But one problem can be having sufficient lines available, in which case you have to wait for a spare line. This is one of those instances where 'knowing someone' will speed the process as they keep a few lines spare for important or essential individuals.

Hi Phil

Mine was installed in a week
but if you buy a resale or rent an apartment with a phone line it should be changed over in a couple of days.

Mine was installed in 24hrs but as I have said on a different thread, some friends are still waiting after 4 years as there are no spare lines, even though they have taken various influential Turks with them to the Turk Telekom office! It all comes down to the area you are in.

Thanks for the replies everyone. So to wait 6 – 12 months would unlikely ever happen, true?

It depends on availability of lines.
We got ours in 24hrs.Our friend who lives about 400m from us cannot have one because there are no telephone poles near enough to her building.She was told it would be about 12 months before they put additional poles in

I wouldnt base any decision on moving to Turkey or staying in Thailand on the availability and speed of having a telephone connected. It may be something to consider but maybe not life-changing.

If it turns out to be difficult to get phone line installed are there any other ways of connecting with the internet in Turkey?If you could get an internet connection then at least you could have Skype.
We have here,northern cyprus,a wireless broadband supplier and all you need is a receiver on the roof,can you get this type of thing in Turkey?

I certainly wasn’t! I was merely seeing what other experiences were compared to the er, lets say BS I was told in my other post!

Thanks to the others for your feedback.

Good question. Hope someone comes up with an answer I can understand.

Don't you need a Residence permit in order to get a phone/ADSL connection? Or have it in someone else's name?

Yes, you do need a Residence Permit to get one in your own name.Yes you can get a friend who has one or a Turk to do it in there name.Not Recommended.

We have a phone line which took 2 days and now we are waiting for the ADSL to be connected, we don't live here and don't have a residency permit, we are part of a company though.
