Killinochchi, Mullaitivu get mobile coverage

Dialog Telekom, has commissioned its services in Killinochchi, Mullaitivu and several other areas in the Northern Province.

This follows the rapid progress being made in the region in terms of infrastructure development and the establishment of citizen services during a period of less than 90 days after liberating the region.

Dialog Telekom Group Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Hans Wijesuriya, together with the Sri Lanka Telecommunications Regulatory Commission Director General, Priyantha Kariyapperuma, made the announcement soon after the activation of services from Dialog’s Network Operations Centre in Colombo.

Mobile coverage from Dialog now reaches Mankulam, Pooneryn, Elephant Pass, Thunukkai and Madhu in addition to Killinochchi and Mullaitivu, with developments under way to expand coverage to other parts of the province.

“Our accelerated development drive in the recently liberated areas derived inspiration and motivation from the Government’s sincere commitment to deliver peace and normalcy to the citizens of the region.

“Our expansion program has been further motivated and facilitated by the invaluable assistance extended to us by the Ministry of Defence, TRCSL and the Sri Lanka Army and other Security Forces engaged in rebuilding in the liberated areas,” said Dr. Hans Wijesuriya.

Kariyapperuma reiterated the Government’s commitment to facilitate the delivery of state-of-the-art communication services to the recently liberated areas.

“The commissioning of mobile communications services within 90 days of liberation is only a beginning,” he said.
