The 2nd Sri Lanka Broadband Forum, hosted by Ministry of Telecommunication and Digital Infrastructure together with the Telecommunications Regulatory Commission of Sri Lanka and Huawei, was held yesterday.

As a national telecommunication event, the Sri Lanka Broadband Forum is a platform for all stakeholders to share their viewpoints on ultra-broadband development, facilitate the business success of all partners in the industry chain and create a sustainable ecosystem. 

The national broadband forum has been successfully held since 2016, with active participation and recognition from the whole Sri Lanka telecommunication industry. The forum highlighted insightful presentations and goals towards digital connection in Sri Lanka including a presentation on the topics of Digital Society, eGovernment and broadband while topics such as Sri Lanka’s digital life vision for 2020, the effect of broadband on people’s lives, the chances for broadband as a public utility and policy changes to support broadband development became subjects for discussion.
