Sri Lanka fixed wireless users shrink, broadband up
29 Jan, 2012 07:24:18
Jan 29, 2012 (LBO) - Sri Lanka's fixed wireless users shrank 1.4 percent to 2.63 million in the third quarter of 2011, from a year earlier, but internet users, which include mobile broad bank rose 100 percent, official data shows.
Fixed wireline grew 4.6 percent to 929,851. Sri Lanka Telecom, the island's only wireline operator had earlier reversed a shrinking sector after its take-over by Malaysia's UT group by promoting broadband ADSL (asymmetric digital subscriber line) use.

Total fixed access users grew 1.4 percent dragged down by a 1.4 percent shrinking of wireless access users. From the second quarter, wireless access use was down 2.1 percent.

Data released by the Central Bank showed mobile users growing 10.8 percent to 18.4 million users during the third quarter from a year earlier, slower than the 14.5 percent seen in the second quarter.

Internet and email subscribers which the central bank said included mobile broadband grew 100 percent to 721,617 in the third quarter.
