Fixed Broadband Quality in Colombo Improves

If you believe something, no evidence is necessary, they say, while if you don’t know evidence is adequate. So we are not surprised if users do not agree, but that is what evidence shows. Test results from Feb 2008 and Feb 2009 round shows a clear improvement, when accessing international servers. The broken lines are for 2008, the unbroken for 2009. SLT ADSL and Dialog WiMax were tested both times.

This was one of the ‘stories’ we presented at the Public Seminar ‘Broadband Quality War: Are you a Winner or a Loser?’ – jointly organized by LIRNEasia and IT sectional Committee of the Institution of Engineers. Prof. Timothy Gonsalves of IIT Madras, R. Thirumurthy of Midas Communication Technologies with representatives from Dialog and Mobitel joined me in making presentations.
