The past year staged many developments in technology, media and
telecommunications (TMT) in Turkey. Long-awaited personal data
protection law was enacted and new regulations were adopted for the
rapidly growing e-commerce market. In addition to those
developments, a significant progress has been achieved through a
transition to a new generation mobile communication technology,
named as 4.5G. This transition has not only accelerated the data
transmission speed but also increased the consolidation in the
telecommunications market. In addition to these developments,
positive signals have emerged in digital TV broadcasting market and
in electronic payments sector.

partial progress has been achieved. While new regulatory tools for
the prevention of margin-squeeze have gained functionality, no
significant move has been witnessed in mobile virtual network

Writing in the Economist newspaper on 8 October 2016, US President Barack Obama called out artificial intelligence (AI) as one of several areas where ‘in recent years we have seen incredible technological advances'.
