SLT resumes CDMA service

3 Apr 2006

Sri Lanka Telecom (SLT) has received legal backing to resume offering its CDMA wireless in the local loop (WiLL) services to new customers after sales were suspended because of a government order to reduce tariffs. SLT stopped marketing new CDMA connections on 21 March, after the Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (TRC) set a deadline for the day before to cut charges from LKR18,400 to LKR12,000. After consultation with its lawyers, SLT said that it was resuming WiLL sales as of 1 April at the original price.
