Upholding its pledge of expanding connectivity to villages and deep rural communities across the country, Dialog Axiata PLC, the widest network in Sri Lanka recently commissioned a tower in the village of Dampalgoda in the Kegalle district under its ‘Sew Desatama Dialog’ initiative.

On its journey of empowering and enriching Sri Lankan lives with improved connectivity to every corner of the country, the new tower in Dampalgoda was commissioned alongside additional towers in the villages of Malalpola and Muwapitiya as well as in the Kegalle district. Towers in Thawalama, Dorala and Pinkanda in the Galle district and Adhikarigoda in the Kaluthara district were also commissioned.

Through its continued efforts to expand coverage and support customers during these unprecedented times, Dialog has reached 4550 mobile 4G sites in its network in April 2022, the highest ever tower count recorded in Sri Lanka. Dialog has also been able to achieve 95% 4G Data population coverage and has made use of Green Field towers in rapidly expanding its coverage to reach deep rural communities and used the Lamp Pole solutions to cater to urgent capacity requirements in dense areas. Dialog’s commitment towards enhancing its coverage footprint was further recognised by global leaders in network testing, including being conferred the titles ‘Best 4G coverage experience’ and ‘Fastest upload and download Speed experience’ by Open Signal.
