Sri Lanka Telecom IPTV launches
September 23, 2008
Sri Lanka Telecom (SLT) has launched its commercial IPTV broadcasting service following delays caused by a slow rollout of ADSL2+ technology. The IPTV deployment, originally scheduled to be completed in August, is based on UTStarcom's RollingStream platform. SLT's wholly owned subsidiary Visioncom has invested around $1 million in the initial launch of its TV-over-ADSL system, which is designed to support around 100,000 subscribers in the next two years.
