Kuzey Kibris Turkcell (KKTCell), a telecommunications services provider in the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus and a subsidiary of Turkcell, has announced the launch of 4.5G services. In a ceremony held at the Headquarters Building, Northern Cyprus Turkcell announced the launch of its 4.5G service offering and internet experiences to its customers.

Northern Cyprus Turkcell highlighted in its statement that, after waiting for 9 years since the 4G beta tests in 2014, it has now become the first operator to introduce 4.5G in the country. Kuzey Kibris Turkcell termed 4.5G as a fourth-generation telecommunications service that offers faster mobile internet speed, more data capacity and low latency.

In its statement, Northern Cyprus Turkcell emphasized that, for KKTCell subscribers to experience 4.5G speeds, it is sufficient for the SIM card and device to be compatible with 4.5G. Then, customers can choose the network settings on their devices to enable 4.5G or simply restart the devices to connect to the network. The company also mentioned that customers can obtain 4.5G compatible SIM cards from Turkcell Communication Centers.

Users can start using the 4.5G service from September 7, 2023, at no extra cost. KKTCell stated that data usage will be charged according to the Mobile Internet package, which is currently valid as per the tariff.
