Sri Lanka Telecom to Deploy National Wi-Fi Hotspot Network

Sri Lanka Telecom is deploying a public hotspot network across Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka Telecom plans to launch multiple offerings including: single-use prepaid service, bundled subscriptions for existing broadband customers, automated offload for mobile users, and partnerships with external providers for roaming and wholesale.
