Jul 1, 2010 6:51:12 AM - itnnews.lk

Central Bank reports that the Posts and Telecommunications sector recorded a growth of 11.7 percent last year.

The development has taken place as a result of the latest services provided within a competitive environment. The competitive prices and the services extended to the areas that were liberated from the terrorists also contributed to this growth. The increase of mobile usage by 25 percent last year is a notable feature.

Quoting a Central Bank report, the Government Information Department announced that 85 percent of the population in this country was using mobile phones.
