 Post Posted: Sun May 08, 2005 2:56 am 
Lanka Bell, first to launch CDMA technology in Sri Lanka
10,000 proposed lines from new Gampaha Base Station

All a customer has to do, is to purchase the phone from Lanka Bell, plug it to a power line and be instantly connected.

Colombo, Thursday 05 May 2005. Lanka Bell, one of the country’s leading private fixed telecom operators, today launched the first of its 150 new CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access) base stations in Gampaha. This is part of the company’s drive to expand its fixed wireless telecommunications network to a greater part of rural Sri Lanka, using cutting edge CDMA 2000-1X technology. The launch also coincided with the opening of the Company’s newest business office in Gampaha.

Lanka Bell confirmed that an initial 3000 lines in the greater Gampaha area will be served by the new Base Station. The capacity is expected to hit 10,000 lines in the entire Gampaha district with upgrades.

After receiving approval from the TRC just over a month ago to proceed with this expansion project, Lanka Bell acted swiftly to become the first operator to bring down CDMA 2000-1X technology to Sri Lanka and complete the test runs.

As part of its road map to provide modern fixed wireless telephony to the rural masses, Lanka Bell recently signed a Rs. 4 billion equipment supply contract with China’s Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd, for the supply of a state-of-the-art and superior CDMA 2000-1X wireless local loop telephone network system and fixed wireless terminals.
