Based on the latest Akamai’s State of the internet  report ( go to the link for the report) covering Q1 of 2016, in Turkey, the average fixed (mobile is not included) connection speed is 7,2 Mbps.

This implies to a 15% year-on-year increase and 12% of QoQ change with a global rank of 64.

Personally, I am not fortunate enough to have a connection speed of above average. Typically I’m getting 5-6 Mpbs of broadband connectivity. I have a legacy DSL connection subscribed to up to 8 Mpbs broadband speed whereas my lucky friends living in a district with a fiber broadband infrastructure are benefitting 25+ Mbps interbet speed.

The average connection speed is a quite critical figure in terms of QoE of OTT TV service offerings in Turkey. As the video consumption through internet is constantly rising, the increase on the broadband speed is extremely crucial. The potential video quality that could be delivered via 7 Mbps bandwidth is quite satisfactory including 1080p Full HD. (Youtube’s live encoder speeds)

This is really a positive element for the growth story of OTT TV in Turkey coupled with the upcoming regulation to improve the fair usage policy.(AKK)
