    can I have the 3G broadband you guys promised earlier, leaving aside 4G!

    ilanko Saturday, 07 May 2011 04:16 PM

    I can't even get the 3G signal in Urumbirai-Jaffna...whats the point of 4G. I cannot foresee how these companies could able to recuperate their investment....

    It is a leap forward,but facilities which receive for Urban areas should flow up for rural areas also.therefore,we all,the majority in Sri Lanka is still far behind goal of the development.it propose to arrange a better plan to link the town and the far most areas in Sri Lanka,like padaviya,Welioya and Sri pura in Anuradhapura.
