Mobitel enhances 4G LTE network coverage

Mobitel (Pvt) Ltd enhanced its 4G LTE network coverage by innovatively deploying its existing 900 MHz spectrum.

This initiative is Sri Lanka’s first such deployment, thus significantly enhancing Sri Lanka’s LTE coverage, a company spokesman said.

Mobitel Chairman, P. G. Kumarasinghe Sirisena said he was proud that the dream of affordable Broadband was finally available to the wider population of Sri Lanka bringing the government machinery and economic mainstream particularly to those in the rural areas of the country.

He praised the strategic guidance of the Director General of the Telecommunications Regulatory Commission of Sri Lanka, Shamal Jayatilake for his vision to bridge the digital divide between the urban and rural areas of Sri Lanka through the existing regulatory framework.

Mobitel, Chief Executive Officer Nalin Perera said that Mobitel constantly lived up to its ‘We Care. Always’ brand promise, and the roll-out of LTE in a low frequency spectrum band ensures that cutting edge technology such as 4G LTE is available to all citizens at affordable prices.

He thanked the Director General of the TRCSL and his staff in implementing a progressive regulatory framework of Sri Lanka, and noted that such regulation encourages further investment from the telecom operators towards Sri Lanka’s Digital Transformation.
