SLT ups broadband speed, cuts rates


Sri Lanka Telecom (SLT) has increased bandwidth speeds and data volumes for broadband customers and reduced charges from January 01, 2011, a statement said.

Accordingly, there will be an automatic 100 percent bandwidth upgrade for its existing ‘Entrée’ broadband customers who will now enjoy speeds up to 1Mbps.

Customers will also get a significant increase of included data for all volume-based broadband packages.

Customers who are using the ‘Entrée’ (512kbps) Broadband Package will now experience downlink speeds doubled up to 1Mbps with this automatic bandwidth upgrade, and will enjoy an additional 500MB that amounts to 1.5GB of total data volume every month with no additional monthly charge.

The SLT statement said its ‘Home Plus’ (formally known as ‘Xcite Plus’) package, with 1Mbps downlink speed, will be upgraded with a usage volume increase to 8GB and a 25 percent reduction of the monthly charge to 1,500 rupees from 2,000.

Other volume based broadband packages also now include increases of up to 100 percent in the included data while SLT has reduced by 30 percent the charge for each additional 1MB from 50 cents/MB to 35 cents/MB.

All existing SLT broadband customers who are using Entrée, Home Plus, Office Plus & Xcel Plus volume based packages will benefit from the free speed boost and increase of data volumes to their internet experience.
