Turkcell's 3G network ended 2009 with coverage of 72% of the population. ‘We have established more base stations in the first six months since we launched the 3G technology than all the base stations we established for 2G technology over six years,’ said Ilter Terzioglu, deputy director general at the company. Terzioglu added that his company had sold almost 300,000 3G modems and netbooks/notebooks by year end from a total subscriber base of 35.4 million. As of 31 December 2009 Turkcell had invested USD7.6 billion in its operations, including licences.
