Hutch Sri Lanka CEO Thirukumar Nadarasa with the Group Roaming team
Hutch, Sri Lanka’s fastest growing mobile broadband network hosted the Hutchison Group Global Roaming Conference where representatives from Hutchison mobile companies in United Kingdom, Europe and Asia were present to discuss way forward roaming strategy and collective initiatives.
As global roaming rates remain to be a hot topic amongst overseas travelers around the globe, discussions at the conference ensued on the application of new roaming strategies for Sri Lanka leveraging the Group synergies globally.

We believe in providing the best fair value roaming services to our customers as part of our mission to provide the most affordable products and services to our fast growing subscriber base”.
