Lanka Bell, according to a report issued by the Telecommunications Regulatory Commission of Sri Lanka (TRCSL), has the country's fastest fixed broadband download speeds, the company said this week.
This is according to the TRCSL's broadband speed test results for the month of December 2010, which showed that users of both Lanka Bell's 512 Kbps and 2 Mbps WiMAX broadband packages enjoyed the fastest available download speeds of all fixed broadband users in the local market, it said.
“Broadband customers will also be encouraged to learn that the TRCSL findings further indicated that, while having the fastest download speeds, Lanka Bell download speeds were also time and again proven to be the closest to download speeds advertised.
This superior performance is a result of Lanka Bell's partnership with the FLAG fiber optic submarine cable network, an infrastructure investment made by Lanka Bell to the tune of US$ 27 million,” it said.
Lanka Bell Managing Director Prasad Samarasinghe said Lanka Bell is already in the midst of an aggressive expansion programme entailing both the size and scope of our top-of-the-line WiMAX broadband services so that every single Sri Lankan can one day benefit from the most affordable means of internet access available.
