Vodafone’s mobile network ranks first in Turkey

Aachen, March 30, 2021 – umlaut, the global consultancy company and world leader in mobile network testing and benchmarking, has analysed the mobile networks of Turkey with regards to mobile coverage and performance quality. In the latest Audit Report umlaut evaluated the three mobile networks of Vodafone, Turkcell and Turk Telekom. Applying the umlaut methodology, which is acknowledged as the de-facto industry standard in more than 120 countries, umlaut conducted a drivetests-based analysis. The results show Vodafone as the overall winner of the country. Turkcell scores second and Turk Telekom third.


With an umlaut score of 853 out of a maximum of 1,000 points, Vodafone achieves the strongest score overall and shows a high quality network as well as high reliability in all tested services.
