Dialog Axiata PLC, the widest network in Sri Lanka, recently commissioned a tower in the village of Dayagama in the Nuwara Eliya district under its 'Sew Desatama Dialog' initiative, keeping in line with its commitment to expand connectivity to villages and deep rural communities across the country.

The new Dayagama tower was commissioned alongside additional towers in the villages of Kandapola, Agarapathana and Padiyapelella, in the Nuwara Eliya district, as part of the company's journey of empowering and enriching Sri Lankan lives through improved connectivity to every corner of the country. Towers were also built in Haldola, Agalawatta, and Runakanda in the Kalutara district and the villages of Mudugala and Dewalahinda in the Ampara district.

Dialog has reached 4550 mobile 4G sites in its network in April 2022, the highest ever tower count recorded in Sri Lanka, as a result of its ongoing efforts to expand coverage and support customers during these unprecedented times. Dialog has also achieved 95% 4G Data population coverage, using Green Field towers to rapidly expand its coverage to deep rural communities and Lamp Pole solutions to meet urgent capacity requirements in dense areas.

Dialog's dedication to expanding its coverage footprint has been recognized by global network testing leaders, coveting the titles of 'Best 4G coverage experience' and 'Fastest upload and download Speed experience' from Open Signal.
