bbg-prGiven below is a news release reprinted verbatim in the Daily FT. I hope to see some real writing on this very important backhaul facility soon. Abu Saeed Khan wrote about it some time back.

Dialog’s investment in the BBG Cable Project exceeds $ 34.5 million (Rs. 5 billion) and underscores the company’s aggressive commitment to deliver the fastest and most advanced connectivity technology to all Sri Lankans.

Dialog’s vision for the provision of high speed connectivity is underpinned by its ethos of maximising digital inclusion via ensuring that the advanced services the company delivers are affordable and accessible to all Sri Lankan citizens, thereby maximising its contribution towards the socio-economic development of the nation.

The new cable system will deliver over 6.4 terabits per second of international bandwidth to Sri Lanka, and will represent a significant step-up with respect to connectivity speeds and will furthermore catalyse an unmatched connectivity experience coupled with a multiplicity of networking options for retail consumers and enterprises
