Critical  uninterrupted  power  in  the  Telecommunications Sector  is  a  hallmark  of   a  committed  network  operator providing  the  best  to  its  customers. Sri Lanka has a well established telecommunications infrastructure, compared to most other countries in the South Asian region.

However, in terms of geographical network coverage, there exists much scope to expand networks into rural areas and particularly the newly liberated north and east regions. Further, island wide network coverage has become a critical success factor for Sri Lankan telecommunications service providers. Therefore, the operators who do not have adequate coverage are now expanding their transmission networks in order to cater to the demand of the consumers and remain competitive amongst their peers.
