Introducing super-fast connectivity to rural Sri Lanka
Dialog Axiata PLC is Sri Lanka's largest and fastest growing telecom services provider with a subscriber base of over 9.3 million users. As the premier mobile operator in the country, Dialog strove to be the first operator in Sri Lanka and South Asia to offer 4G LTE data speeds to users. At the time, Dialog wanted to better utilize the fiber-cables installed to run broadband traffic. However, the high cost per connection when offering services to enterprise customers and high operating costs posted some concerns. Introducing a Carrier-Ethernet solution, Dialog was able to reduce operational expenditure and fully utilize their fiber-infrastructure as planned to run heavy broadband traffic. As a result of this, Dialog was not only able to reduce OPEX, but also use this infrastructure to provide unmatched data speeds to users, and extend its services to all parts of the island. By utilizing fiber infrastructure efficiently, Dialog achieved significant economies of scale bringing digital empowerment to millions of Sri Lankans.

"Dialog became the first telecom provider in Sri Lanka to offer 4G LTE connectivity while extending services to the North and East of the country. For customers this meant super-fast data connectivity on-the-go." - Pradeep De Almeida
