SLT expands fibre-to-the-building project to the regions

Sri Lanka Telecom (SLT) has extended its fibre-to-the-building (SLT Metro Ethernet) project regionally to support advanced data, voice, video and broadband Internet services.

SLT Metro Ethernet services are mainly meant for high end business customers and SME customers to provide end-to-end intelligent solutions through a very high speed broadband connectivity, the company said in a press release.

SLT Metro Ethernet has a Fiber Core Ring Network which connects Colombo Central, Slave Island, Liberty Plaza, Havelock Town and Maradana at a speed of 10Gbps, since these areas have a large demand for high speed data services. Further 13 Nos. of Fibre Access Rings with a speed of 10Gbps were implemented at these locations that have connected more than 110 high rise buildings, which include almost all the head offices of corporate customers in Colombo.

This was the phase-I of the Metro Ethernet Project and Metro Ethernet Services are now available in all these buildings, the release said.
