Will not print on fiber
Commenting on the fact that Türk Telekom, which is the dominant operator in fiber network infrastructure with 4.5G technology, does not agree with other operators (Turkcell, Vodafone) to establish a company, Arslan said: “Gidişat definitely requires fiber optic infrastructure. Let them meet in a common infrastructure. So, let's bring more people to this common infrastructure. But here, Türk Telekom rightly says, (I suffered from this until today in the past, now why should someone else go on with it). Others say, let's start an infrastructure company. I think Türk Telekom and other operators will approach each other. This situation will be to the advantage of the parties. But we cannot say that you will definitely join Türk Telekom here. The end of the day depends on those companies convincing each other. This is a commercial balance. ”
When does traffic relax in Istanbul?
Arslan stated that although there are passages from Yavuz Sultan Selim Bridge in Istanbul, the heavy traffic is due to the completion of the connection roads, and stated that there is a delay due to expropriation in the Kurtköy - Sancaktepe region, but this additional road will end at the end of the year.

Our state road with 2 × 3 lanes from Odayeri to Çatalca is being built. It will end at the end of 2017.

Foreign vehicle that does not pay the penalty remains at customs!
Minister Arslan also said: “We are doing what is necessary with the regulation on foreign trucks. We made the legal arrangement. The penalties will be given at the customs gates. So far, 427 thousand vehicles with foreign license plates have passed illegally. After that, the vehicle whose penalty is not collected will not be able to leave the customs gate until it pays the money. Sorry if he has no money ... "
The "penalty" pressure on the US Google continues. Finally, Europe and the UK were at Google's door with penalties such as rain. Answering our questions about such tax sanctions, Minister Arslan said, “We have works. In the past, the domestic search engine was spoken. When it comes to criminal sanctions, there is a very serious work in France. Although the company headquarters is in Ireland. We are also slowly working on creating a local search engine and taking steps to implement such sanctions. We will share it when we mature a little more, ”he said.
New ones are not expensive, old ones are cheap!
Bridge and motorway tolls are always on the citizen's agenda. Despite this, we continue our investments. The price is determined every year with a certain assessment. Here, the inference of the hike in the future will not be taken out of the inference, "he said.
