Slow start by Bharti Airtel in Sri Lanka?

Posted by on May 15, 2007  /  209 Comments

Today, at a ceremony to sign a large number of investment agreements at the Board of Investment of Sri Lanka, it was revealed that Bharti Airtel, Sri Lanka’s fifth mobile operator, is planning to invest USD 150 million. This amount is below industry expectations and suggests that Bharti will start slow, with a conventional rollout concentrated in the Northwestern, Western and Southern provinces.

    Indians will always crawl beg & enter but once they move in they are like flies (Multiplying)
    There are some good comments from Geek & Crosswind

    Just a word of edvice:
    Ape de apita odai
    dont try to replicate that old singlalese song (Putarata sirithata diwa dik karana).

  4. it’s intresting but srilanka’s other operators will reduce the charges when airtel arrive.So we Dont need to afraid about that.For a example mobitel has introduced a new prepaid connection called Smart 5 .That has given us lot of opportunities .i think Others will introduce a good prepaid or postpaid connections very soon. a important thing is my that airtel sims won’t be very low will cost very high.However we are welcome the bhati airtel.
