Türk Telekom International is Türk Telekom Group's subsidiary in charge of international wholesale voice and data sales and marketing. Acquired by the Group in 2010, the company operated as Pantel International before being rebranded as Türk Telekom International (TTI) on May 1, 2013.
The company delivers a full range of Internet data services, customer management from a single center, integrated networking operations, infrastructure and wholesale voice services to established operators, alternative carriers, mobile operators, cable TV companies, Internet service providers and corporate customers in over 40 countries spread across Central and Eastern Europe, Turkey, the Middle East and the Caucasus.
Thanks to a fiber optic network that exceeds 40,000 km, Türk Telekom International provides a major contribution to Turkey's goal of becoming a telecoms bridge and data hub between Europe and Asia, while strengthening the country’s global standing in the industry. The network is located primarily in Central and Eastern Europe countries.
Capitalizing on Türk Telekom's brand recognition in not only the region but across the world, the company continued to implement the expansion strategy in the Middle East that was initiated in 2013, becoming one of the region's major players through various collaborations and high-profile projects.
Work on the AMEER (Alternative Middle-East-Europe-Route) project, which commenced in 2013 continued in 2014. The company received the “Best Project in the Middle East” award at the 2014 Capacity Global Carrier Awards for this initiative. Implemented by Türk Telekom International through a consortium with countries in the region, AMEER provides a backed-up, rapid and secure alternative route between Dubai and Frankfurt, merging land-based and sub-marine infrastructures.
Türk Telekom International entered the Asian market by setting up a network access point (PoP) in Hong Kong in 2013, followed by the establishment of a subsidiary in Hong Kong in 2014. After obtaining the necessary licenses, TTI HK started operations, taking a significant step forward in enhancing the company’s reputation and reliability among the region's operators.
