Recently United telecom is the second telecom operator in NEPAL.
Joint venture company of India's MTNL. MTNL is a No 1 acticing company in rural telecommunication in india. Specialy in Maharashta.

Is that means - After Airtel on March - MTNL will come to Sri Lanka also. Dialog be carefull.

Is there any connection with Amithab Bachchan And Comet cable. As the News I got several years ago. That he was the main guest in the opening ceramony of comet.

Correct me in Both issues...

@ nishantha,

why should Dialog be careful ? They already have over 4 million customers, AIRTEL will take years to even come close. Its operators like Hutch & Tigo that should worry.

Dialog is by far the best in Techonogly & value added services, the only thing lacking is their 3G compared to Mobitel's 3.5G.

Airtel will not another Dialog or Mobitel. It will be a cheap cost Indian sattelite base communication stratergy.They can collect cellular customers in easily by lowest cost & they will introduce incoming + outgoing Free ,monthly rental only packages.
