Lynk Global, Inc. (Lynk), the world leader in satellite-direct-to-mobile-phone technology, has partnered with Turkcell (NYSE: TKC), Turkiye's premier mobile operator, to initiate Sat2Phone services across the country. This collaboration leverages Lynk's innovative "cell-towers-in-space" to bolster network resilience and extend mobile coverage, ensuring that the Turkish populace, businesses, and tourists alike benefit from unparalleled connectivity.

Turkcell, a titan in integrated communication and technology services, has been at the forefront of offering a broad spectrum of inventive products and services. Its unified mobile and fixed network platform stands testament to its commitment to fulfilling the diverse needs of both individual and corporate customers. As a trailblazer listed on the New York Stock Exchange and the Borsa Istanbul since July 2000, Turkcell's distinction as Turkiye's sole dual-listed company underscores its pivotal role in the nation's telecommunications landscape. Furthermore, its inclusion in the Borsa Istanbul Sustainability Index highlights its dedication to sustainable business practices.

The excitement surrounding this collaboration is palpable, with Ali Taha Koc, CEO of Turkcell, expressing enthusiasm about the impending launch of these services. "Today marks a significant milestone as we announce our partnership with Lynk, the global frontrunner in Sat2Phone telecoms," Koc stated. He emphasized Turkcell's pioneering spirit in embracing next-generation communication services, positioning the company as a technological leader in Turkiye.

Echoing this sentiment, Daniel Dooley, Chief Commercial Officer at Lynk, highlighted the mutual commitment to connecting everyone, everywhere. "Turkcell's decision to offer initial commercial service across its extensive subscriber base is a testament to their innovative approach in bridging the gap between disparate geographies and communities," Dooley remarked.

This initial phase of Sat2Phone services will focus on SMS capabilities, with plans to broaden the scope to include voice and data communications. This expansion promises to deliver an urban-like mobile experience to even the most remote locations, ensuring that essential emergency alerts and SMS warnings reach areas especially vulnerable to natural disasters.
