-Ilayda Sarikaya: “Thank you very much to our President for the internet connection. I started using it, we use it when we don't have internet.”
-Mehmet Üstüner: “It is a very good application. I am connected from my phone, I will continue to use it.”
-Irem Aktepe: “This is a very active place as it is the widely used central point of Etimesgut. My house is on this side and the internet connection we use at home is not very good. I think that providing such an opportunity is a very good innovation for all of us. I usually live around here with my friends, and when I don't have internet, I want them to share their internet. It is very nice that such a situation will no longer be necessary.”
-Ayberk Kirik: “We thank our president. When our internet runs out, we will be able to use the free internet service provided by the Metropolitan Municipality.”
-Ramadan Tumer: “Thanks to our president, he thought very well. The internet is everything at this time.”
-Elif Doga: “I think it is a very good service for young people and I support it.”
-Gamze Akyüz: “There are too many young people at this point in Batıkent. Internet connection service is a supportable idea and I would definitely use it.”
-Elvin Koca: “We are all students. Very nice idea, we don't always have internet. Our package may run out.”
