    In Sri Lanka too it was an Indian company that brought the mobile call rates down. We need the same now for fixed line broadband.

    Sri Lanka is one of the most expensive countries for Internet users. The Internet providers are making an impertinently and exploiting high profit. In Germany I pay 17 Euro (3000 Rs) per month inclusive 19% VAT for unlimited surfing and unlimited time to make calls to the landline.

    I just checked my internet capacity and nothing has changed. I have 9GB peak and 9GB off peak.When are we going to get the additional 10%?

    This is the only country in the world that has fixed data amounts. Essentially, if the government had been investing properly in the digital infrastructure of the country, there would not be rationing of data like this.

    This is not new Ravi increased rates not only of data but all of telecommunication services. Now reducing just of data. Only difference is rates of other tele.services are high. A joke.

    Ravi levied tax on everything except - on breathing.
