Türk Telekom and Akamai join forces


Review by Christos T. Panagopoulos –

Turkey’s leading communication company Türk Telekom and Akamai Technologies, a prominent Infrastructure Service Provider, have signed a remarkable strategic partnership to jointly build and manage a high-capacity Operator Content Delivery Network (OCDN) in Turkey for faster delivery of online content and video.

The agreement that aims to optimize the network efficiency of the country’s current Internet infrastructure was signed by Türk Telekom CEO Tahsin Yılmaz and Akamai CEO Tom Leighton during a press meeting held in London last week.

The partnership will ensure a significant increase in speed and performance for broadband and mobile users in Turkey, particularly when accessing social media and popular online video sites.
