As part of its efforts to expand and improve connectivity at every corner of the country, Dialog Axiata PLC, Sri Lanka's widest network, continues to expand connectivity to villages and deep rural communities with the commissioning of the most recent tower in Deegithawa in the Kurunegala district under its "Sew Desatama Dialog" initiative.

The Deegithawa tower, along with other towers in the villages of Thambagalla, Wagolla, Thelahera, Bihalpola, Waduwawa, Kelemulla, and Makaduwawa, were commissioned in the Kurunegala district enabling greater connectivity for all Sri Lankans across the nation. Towers were also built in the village of Ethawetunuwewa in Vavuniya along with Arukarkudah and Puluganawamalai in the Batticaloa district.

Dialog has connected over 180 Grama Niladhari divisions and surpassed 4,700 mobile 4G sites in its network by the end of 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.
