SLT land phones


Comments / {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}} Views / Wednesday, 14 June 2017 00:01


With the proliferation in the use of mobile phones, the usage of the land phones is now very much limited. The subscribers of the land phones have to pay the monthly rentals including the taxes (which incidentally is a whopping 49.67 % being levied on the rental) irrespective of the usage.

This is to suggest that Sri Lanka Telecom should grant us the facility to convert the land phones to CDMA to give mobility in which case the subscriber will be able to make a better use of same. 

The service provider could charge a reasonable fee for the conversion as it will immensely benefit the users of the land phones.

Hope SLT will consider this request for the benefit of all the land phone users. Over to TRCSL to ensure that the above proposal is implemented by the SLT.
