The fastest internet connection in Sri Lanka – SLT fibre PROS & CONS

Most of are talking about internet connection speed in Sri Lanka these days but non of service providers can support the huge load during peak hours due to the high demand of internet. The reason behind is most of users use internet to do the office/school/university/government works from home during the covid19 situation and the providers does not have enough infrastructure facilities to support on this. Its better to have two internet connection with two deferent providers to face the situation In Sri Lanka :). I hope SLT fibre is fastest internet connection in Sri Lanka for now.

I am also struggled to connect to my office calls/works during the pandemic time because of the connection issues. Recently I have moved to SLT fibre connection and I need to let you know that this is the best and fastest home internet connection in Sri Lanka for now.
