SRI Lanka's Telecom Sector Experiencing A Major Pause In Its Development Trajectory
Sri Lanka's mobile market was set to pass 100% subscriber penetration milestone in 2013. Mobile subscriber numbers had increased fourfold in just six years. The leading mobile operators had been trialling Fourth Generation (4G) technologies in preparation for commercial launch. After a sustained period of healthy growth, the country's fixed-line market had undergone a levelling off and suffered a significant decline in 2012. Fixed-line expansion has been boosted by the extensive application of CDMA-based WLL technology; WLL services comprised a majority of the total fixed line subscriber base by 2012. The country's internet sector remained underdeveloped, with the take up rate of broadband services being especially low; there were however signs that this was starting to change, especially with the surge in mobile broadband services. Fixed broadband penetration (as a percentage of population) was still less than 2% in early 2012. The government established the National Broadband Consultative Committee (NBCC) in 2010, but there was little evidence of it having any great impact to date.
