With the recent commissioning of the Kumbugoda Ara tower in the Ratnapura district, Dialog Axiata PLC, Sri Lanka's widest network, is continuing its commitment of expanding connectivity to villages and deep rural communities across the country under the "Sew Desatama Dialog" initiative.

The new Kumbugoda Ara tower was commissioned alongside additional towers in the village of Embilipitiya, in the Ratnapura district, as part of the company's mission of improving network connectivity throughout the entire nation. Towers were also built in Elathalawa, Nabiriththankadawara, Beminigalla, and Dunumawa in the Kurunegala 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.
