Fulfilling its role as the nation’s pioneer in Telecommunication Services, the SLT Group successfully completed the President’s directive of providing high-speed connectivity solutions to the Lankagama Village recently.
An event was held to mark this proud achievement on 20th September 2020 in the presence of Mr. Oshada Senanayake - Director General of the Telecommunications Regulatory Commission of Sri Lanka (TRCSL), Mr. Lalith Seneviratne - Group CEO of SLT & Mobitel, Mr. Kiththi Perera- Chief Executive Officer of SLT, Mr. M.B.P. Fernandez - Chief Operations Officer of SLT, Mr. Prabath Dahanayake - Chief Marketing Officer of SLT, Mr. Sudarshana Geeganage – Chief Financial Officer of Mobitel, Mr. Shashika Senerath - Chief Marketing Officer of Mobitel, Mr. Rasantha Hettithanthrige – Senior General Manager, Engineering & Operations at Mobitel along with SLT & Mobitel technology partners Huawei, ZTE and the community.
The SLT Group provided high-speed 4G/LTE broadband and enhanced voice services within record-time despite the fact that the Lankagama village is located at the Southern boundary of the Sinharaja Rain Forest, in the Neluwa Divisional Secretariat, Galle District; posing severe logistical challenges. Further, the SLT Group also offered SMART classroom solutions consisting of tabs, laptops and school supplies including stationery thereby opening up a world of possibilities for the students in the remote village.
Mr. Lalith Seneviratne, Group CEO of SLT & Mobitel said, “As The National Telecommunication Service Provider, SLT and Mobitel are privileged to deliver our promise to the President to empower the Lankagama village which is now equipped with high-speed mobile connectivity solutions. We consider it our joint responsibility to bridge the rural-urban digital divide by empowering rural areas with digital solution and enabling equal opportunity for all citizens of the country.”
The SLT Group’s initiative to support the Lankagama village with connectivity solutions will facilitate the President’s vision for a digitalized Sri Lanka by 2025 thereby supporting the country to uplift its digital literacy and forge ahead into global spheres.
