While we have changed the way mobile communications work in the country through the introduction of several innovative services which include the concept of no hidden costs, customised internet packages and handset bundle offers, we have received an amazing love and support from the people of Sri Lanka. And thanks to their support, Airtel has become one of the most successful international brands to be established in Sri Lanka in terms of connectivity and accessibility across the Country.”
