State-owned fixed and mobile operator Sri Lanka Telecom (SLT-Mobitel) has unveiled ambitious plans to significantly ramp up the rollout of fibre-optic network infrastructure under its One Million Fibre Project. SLT-Mobitel said the project aims to connect all communities, in every district in Sri Lanka, with high speed, fibre-based broadband ‘enabling seamless access to transition into an era of digital services’.

Completing the architecture for the deployment of one million fibre connections ‘within a record period’, SLT-Mobitel aims to reach two million connections by end-2023, with a target of empowering one million fibre consumers (incl. homes and businesses) with high speed fibre access. To-date, nearly 500,000 households in Sri Lanka are powered with fibre access, it said.
