-Telefónica Germany and Türk Telekom: cooperation continues to be successful
-Sales network in Germany expanded
MUNICH. Telefónica Germany is expanding its strategic partnership with Türk Telekom. Today, Türk Telekom Mobile's flagship store is opening its doors. The two telecommunications companies are further developing their sales network in Germany with the roll-out of the special shops. Other flagship stores are scheduled to open this year.
Telefónica Germany and Türk Telekom are expanding the partnership they entered into last year. The joint product called 'Türk Telekom Mobile' allows more than three million Turks living in Germany to benefit from very affordable offers for phone services, SMS and Internet in Germany and Turkey. As a result, customers can make phone calls for as little as five cents per minute to the Turkish and German landline network as well as within the German O2 network and to the Turkish Avea network.
"Our partnership with Türk Telekom and the marketing of our joint tariffs are very successful," said Michiel van Eldik, Managing Director of Wholesale & Partner Management at Telefónica Germany. "The expansion of our sales network in Germany by means of special flagship stores will strengthen our position in the market even more," van Eldik added. With the further expansion of the sales network, Telefónica Germany and Türk Telekom are reacting to the positive development in product marketing since the introduction of the tariff in August 2011. In addition to the flagship store that has already opened in Hamburg, the Berlin store represents another important location. Other shops in large cities will follow before the end of this year. All flagship stores will be operated in cooperation with sales partners. Today the 'Türk Telekom Mobile' tariff is already being sold in more than 2,000 partner shops. Customers can also purchase the product online. More on the tariffs and special options can be found at: www.turktelekommobile.de
