The decline in fixed-line telephone usage in Turkey is due to several factors. The rise of mobile phone usage has made it easier for people to communicate without a landline. Furthermore, the rise of internet-based communication tools such as Skype and WhatsApp has also played a role in the decline of landlines. These tools allow people to communicate with each other without the need for a landline.

Despite the decline in fixed-line telephone usage, it is still an important communications service in Turkey. For businesses, landlines are still seen as a more professional way to communicate than mobile phones.
