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.
