Bodrum, Turkey, VDSL2 !

So I went back to Bodrum Turkey again this summer after 2 years to find that they had VDSL2 rolled out across Bodrum and Gumbet. Below is a picture of the cabinets. I was impressed that a town which doesn't have 24/7 running water (houses have water storage tanks) has such infrastructure! 


Interestingly it might be Alcatel-Lucent equipment as Turk Telekom use that in their exchanges but i'm unsure if there are any other companies involved. I thought it would have been Huawei at a guess.
