Sri Lanka Telecom (SLT Group) has recently signed a deal with Fon that will enable SLT Group to deliver WiFi connectivity to their subscriber base.
In addition to choosing Fontech’s Carrier WiFi Solution to deliver seamless WiFi access locally, SLT Group has signed a roaming agreement with Fon to grant their users international access to WiFi in over 21 million locations globally.
Thanks to new roaming agreements with major operators such as Telekom Malaysia, Korea Telecom, and Softbank, Fon claims that its global network now includes almost three million hotspots in the Asia-Pacific region.
SLT Group will be integrating Fontech technology into more than six router models equipped with FTTH, ADSL and LTE technologies. SLT Group will provide customers with several different access alternatives, including captive portal, WISPr seamless connectivity, and EAP.
The service is currently being deployed and integrated, and will be launched in Q1 2018, targeting hundreds of thousands of CPEs.
