Dialog befriends a thousand eZ buddies

3 Aug 2007

Dialog Telekom’s ‘eZ buddies’ public mobile phone scheme has been a success since its commercial launch this May, according to the cellco. Sri Lanka’s largest GSM operator has signed up 1,000 ‘eZ buddies’ entrepreneurs in the south of the island so far, and is gradually rolling out the service up to Puttalam and to all parts of the island, except the conflict-stricken north and east provinces. Sri Lanka has around 10,000 payphones, but more than half are in the western region. ‘eZ buddies’ supplies individuals with a ‘business in a box’ including a GSM mobile phone, branded marketing material and training guides.
