Sri Lankan consumers once again voted Dialog as the Telecom Service Provider and Internet Service Provider of the Year at the prestigious SLIM-Nielsen Peoples Awards 2019. Voted for by the public to recognise brands that have made a profound impression in the minds of the people of Sri Lanka, the Peoples Awards has voted Dialog as the preferred Telecom Service Provider for a record eighth year running and as the preferred Internet Service Provider of the Year for the seventh consecutive year; recognising the delivery on its commitment as the number one and fastest network, as endorsed by the Sri Lankan public. 

Dialog continues to strive for excellence in all frontiers by delivering the widest coverage and fastest speed, further solidified by earning the 2018 Speedtest Award by Ookla, the global leader in mobile network testing applications, data and analysis. Dialog’s undisputed leadership in the space of connectivity and innovation is reiterated by the commissioning of South Asia’s first fully functional and standards compliant 5G pilot transmission, and by the introduction of emerging technologies, such as the Narrowband Internet of Things (NB-IOT) and commercial launch of Voice over LTE (VoLTE), VoLTE Roaming, Voice over WiFi (VoWiFi), and 4.5G LTE Home Broadband; showcasing Sri Lanka’s dominance as a regional hub in driving digital transformation, developing the digital ecosystem, and new technology standards.

Dialog Axiata PLC Group Chief Executive Supun Weerasinghe said: “We are grateful and humbled that Sri Lankans have voted for us once again as the Telecom Service Provider of the Year and the Internet Service Provider of the Year. We will continue to deliver a fully connected, intelligent Sri Lanka and pioneer the next generation of digital infrastructure, accessible to every Sri Lankan. 

“This recognition resonates with the sentiments of all Sri Lankans and the value we create and deliver, in line with our vision of empowering and enriching Sri Lankan lives and enterprises.”

This year was the 13th edition of the Peoples Awards program, hosted by the Sri Lanka Institute of Marketing, with research conducted in association with Nielsen. The nominees and winners for the various categories are identified through research undertaken over a six-month period, encompassing respondents from all nine provinces, drawn from age segments in the range of 15-60 years. The Peoples Awards recognises brands and personalities that personally appeal to the people of the country.
