Turk Telecom

I have been reading posts on here regarding the residents permits and have seen the goalposts change immeasurably since we've been here. When we first moved here, we managed to obtain a 3 year permit and during that time, the format changed where they had to be renewed every year! The rigmarole you have to adhere to is absolutely ridiculous having to get the same documents translated every single year when they should already be in possession of past copies as they aren't going to change.

On a different note, we live in Sarilar and have been trying for 5 years to get a telephone line for the internet. We have been to see Benjamin at the the telecom office several times and before you even walk in, he's looking up at the ceiling being totally disinterested in what you have to say. There are 8 villas spaced out here, one owned by a lovely Turkish family but within a week of them moving in, a street light was installed outside their villa, and they have an internet connection. Benjamin informed us that there are not enough villas around to make it financially viable to install telephone lines as they would not get their money back. If there were 100 villas up here, they would do so! He said if we wanted a fibre optic connection, it would cost us 20,000 lira and we asked if they would contribute half of the cost and he bluntly refused saying if you want it, you'll have to pay for it! So, we have had to make other arrangements to obtain an internet connection and wonder how long it will take for them to change their minds. We chose to move here and have adopted Turkey as our home, we contribute to their economy as all us ex-pats do but we get nothing in return from them and wonder why. It appears that they don't even want us here so try to make things as difficult as possible for us. We have no plans whatsoever to return to the UK so Turkey is our forever home.

Re: Ptt

You are going into PTT for a phone line? No wonder he rolls his eyes. Try Turk Telecom.

Sorry Garcia but your post does not make sense.

Re: Turk Telecom

Edited Garcia,

As Martin says, because at the most you should only have to pay for a pole or two if you are a too far away from your neighbour. It is as if this Benjamin is having you on or a translator is taking the p**s.

Re: Ptt

If you'd have read the post all the way through you would have seen that I meant Turk Telecom and not PTT. Obviously it would not make any sense at all if I'd gone to the PTT so use a bit of common to see that I'd made a genuine mistake which I have since corrected!!!!

Re: Ptt

He has a landline which we take our feed for our Ethernet connection from! The Telecom still will not put in a landline for us for an internet connection unless we pay for it and yes, I think Benjamin is paking the tiss because we're Europeans and he thinks we're loaded, as most Turkish people think!

Re: Turk Telecom

Garcia, I am more confused now. You are aware an ethernet connection is a network connection?

Re: Turk Telecom

Maybe also worth remembering that although people do it, "sharing" a Turk Telekom connection from a neighbour is highly illegal and totally against Turk Telekom's Ts&Cs which point out any connection is limited to the household paying the bill.
