Sri Lanka Telecom (SLT) has introduced its cutting-edge "carrier-grade" public Wi-Fi technology in Sri Lanka. All Sri Lankans are now able to experience the next evolution in wireless broadband connectivity in the very near future, as SLT expands Sri Lanka’s first carrier-grade Wi-Fi network.

The official ceremony in this regard was held on 17th May marking World Telecommunication and Information Society Day (WTISD) at the elephant orphanage in Pinnawela premises in the presence of Ranjith Siyambalapitiya, Minister of Telecommunication and IT.

The company will be further expanding its public Wi-Fi hotspot service, which is the Next Generation Wireless Broadband Access (WBA) technology to expand and improve the overall quality of the country’s broadband footprint to empower more citizens in the country with a superior broadband experience.

The company believes ‘SLT Wi-Fi’ solution is set to revolutionise the mobile computing experience for end-users. Commonly known busy places like airports, hotels and cafés with Wi-Fi connectivity, an increasing number of enterprises, SMEs and retailers are looking to offer Wi-Fi as a value added service, so customers and visitors will have a better experience for shopping etc.
