Ümit Önal, CEO at Türk Telekom, says: "At Türk Telekom, the leader of Türkiye's digital transformation, we continue our collaborations in the field of next-generation communication technologies, now including the development of the 6G ecosystem and application areas through participation in national and international 6G projects.

Through this partnership, our aim is to accelerate the digital transformation of our country and lead the global development and implementation of 6G.
