FALLS CHURCH, Va. – Lynk Global, Inc., a leader in satellite-direct-to-mobile communications, has signed a contract with Turkcell, Turkiye's largest mobile operator, to initiate Sat2Phone services. The partnership aims to enhance network resilience and extend mobile coverage throughout Turkiye, benefiting residents, businesses, and tourists.

Turkcell, which has been dual-listed on the New York Stock Exchange and the Borsa Istanbul since July 2000, is recognized for its comprehensive range of innovative products and services. The company sees this collaboration with Lynk as a step forward in maintaining its status as a pioneering technology provider in Turkiye.

Ali Taha Koc, Turkcell's CEO, expressed enthusiasm about the partnership, emphasizing the company's commitment to innovation and leadership in communication services. Daniel Dooley, Lynk's Chief Commercial Officer, highlighted the shared goal of connecting people across Turkcell's extensive subscriber base.

The initial phase of the Sat2Phone service will focus on SMS capabilities, with plans to expand to voice and data services. This development is expected to provide critical communication links, including emergency alerts and SMS warnings, in regions prone to natural disasters.

Turkcell operates in Turkiye, Ukraine, Belarus, and Northern Cyprus, offering a broad spectrum of digital services. The company reported significant revenue and assets as of September 30, 2023, and launched LTE services in its home country on April 1, 2016.

Lynk's patented technology enables text messaging between standard mobile devices and satellites. With regulatory approvals in over 30 countries, Lynk is expanding its services, including emergency alerts and two-way SMS messaging, with plans for future voice and broadband services.

This partnership is based on a press release statement and reflects the ongoing efforts by both companies to improve connectivity and communication technologies.
