As İSTTELKOM, we have completed our infrastructure works for subways to provide double-sided internet, everything is ready and we are waiting for an answer to our application to the Istanbul Police Headquarters. We are ready for all cooperation to solve the issue in the face of intense demand from our citizens. "
