Turkcell phone in Nicosia

I have Turkcell prepaid phone. I've read that reception of Kuzey Kıbrıs Turkcell's signal in Southern Nicosia is fairly decent.

Question 1: is that true? Can I keep using my Turkcell phone on KKT network on the southern side (R of C) of Nicosia, or maybe the coverage doesn't extend that far?

Question 2: IF the coverage is fine, and I can use my Turkcell, will I be paying roaming to use KKT, or is it considered a local call (for example, if I receive call from Turkey)? IF it is roaming - do you know the rates?

Would appreciate info on this!

Generally the coverage is within 1 - 2 miles of the border , I use my turkcell sim and it's still considered a local call , I'd check with Turkcell re the roaming rates.
