It quoted Yasar Topcu, the Transport Minister, as saying: 'I give these companies until Wednesday to stop their erotic services or I'll cut their lines which . . . encourage immoral sexual behaviour among young people. They are an insult to the public.'
Sex lines became popular after the state telephone monopoly, PTT, launched Turkey's first dial-data service seven months ago.
Overall revenues from the dial-data services have topped pounds 15m so far, drawing an average 60,000 calls a day, PTT officials said.Reuse content
