Sri Lanka Telecom PLC is the national Information and Communications Technology (ICT) solutions provider and the leading broadband and backbone infrastructure services provider in  Sri Lanka for over 162 years. SLT enables opportunities that empower Sri Lankans and elevates the country’s standing in the global arena. SLT’s transformation into a digital service provider has seen the Company move beyond telecommunications services to provide a variety of services and solutions that cater to a digital lifestyle.

Principal lines of business

The Sri Lanka Telecom Group provides diversified services and an entire range of ICT solutions that cover fixed and mobile telephony, broadband, data services, Internet Protocol Television (IPTV), cloud computing and hosting services, and networking solutions to its varied customers via the latest technologies. The SLT Group primarily focuses on three operating segments which are the Group’s strategic segments:

  • Fixed ICT operations
  • Mobile ICT operations
  • Other segment operations

Fixed and mobile ICT operations constitute the SLT Group’s core business. In 2019, they collectively accounted for 98% of revenue, 98% of total assets, and nearly 100% of capital expenditure of the SLT Group.

Fixed ICT operations

The Group’s holding company, SLT, operates in the fixed ICT business. It provides telecom networks and ICT services to organisations of all sizes across all economic sectors, other telecommunications operators and internet service providers (ISPs), public sector institutions, and domestic customers.

ICT facilities and services provided include voice, data, broadband, wholesale, enterprise, cloud, international, and IPTV. One of the SLT Group’s key strategic objectives is to drive adoption of broadband-based consumer and enterprise services by expanding the broadband footprint through the Next Generation Network (NGN) and National Backbone Network (NBN). These efforts are supplemented by an array of technologies including optical fibre, ADSL2+, VDSL2, carrier-grade Wi-Fi, and both fixed and mobile 4G LTE technologies. The Company also uses its multiple international submarine cable networks to offer state-of-the-art global services, securing its position as a key global player in the telecom industry.

Mobile ICT operations

Mobitel (Pvt) Ltd. (“Mobitel”), a fully-owned subsidiary of SLT, offers mobile ICT services including mobile telephony services, high-speed broadband, enterprise solutions, international services, and a range of value-added services.

Mobitel’s coverage extends nationwide and includes international roaming with the partnership of a global web of over 650 networks.

As the only 4.5G/4G+ mobile network in Sri Lanka, Mobitel offers an unparalleled broadband network experience delivering burst speeds up to 300 Mbps and has been recognised by Ookla Speedtest Awards as the fastest mobile network in Sri Lanka.

Mobitel was the first mobile network operator to deploy a Sub-1G mobile broadband network utilising 850 MHz spectrum in Sri Lanka, increasing 4G LTE coverage across the island. In 2018, Mobitel commenced rolling out its largest ever 4G LTE expansion project with over 1,600 LTE sites across the nation together with Voice over LTE (VoLTE), enabling customers to make high quality voice calls over the LTE network.

Our reach

The SLT Group covers the whole country and serves a customer base of over seven million accounts across fixed and mobile ICT services. Our customers include domestic users, small and medium enterprises (SMEs), retail customers, multinationals and enterprises, public sector institutions, as well as other operators and wholesale customers. Our fibre optic network, with broadband speeds of up to 1 Gbps, extends nearly 50,000 kms across the island.
