“Sri Lanka's tourism industry is targeting 2.5 million guests by 2016 and is in the process of adding an estimated 35,000 new rooms.

In-room entertainment and information will be a key factor in disseminating information and also enhancing the overall experience of guest,” LankaCom Managing Director Rohith Udalagama said.

“Our relationship with the corporate sector over the past 20 years has grown immensely, on large part due to our dedication to customer service and the introduction of best in class solutions. The LankaCom IPTV system will help the tourism industry further enhance its guest experience with better information and entertainment option.”

A majority of hotels currently offer only basic television facilities with limited menus and entertainment options, due to the current high costs of implementing an IPTV system.
