Turkcell offers instant broadband upgrade
20 February 2013
Customers of Turkcell’s broadband unit can increase speed to 100 megabits for 24 hours by text message
Turkish broadband company Turkcell Superonline is letting its
fibre customers increase speed on demand to 100 megabits for 24
hours for €4.16.
The company, a subsidiary of mobile operator Turkcell, says
customers are able to increase speed automatically, whatever
tariff package they are on or whatever their normal speed, when
they need faster access. Turkcell Superonline charges 9.90
Turkish lira for the 24 hours of faster connection.
The upgrade can be used three times in a month, says Turkcell.
Customers send a text message saying "turbo" to request the
upgrade. The new service is called Turbo Buton —
"Buton" means "button" in Turkish.
The company offers its fibre connected customers speeds up to
one gigabit a second.
