Sri Lanka Telecom will be holding the ‘Sisu Abhiman Awards’ at the Presidential Secretariat. The primary goal of the event is to empower learning by use of ultra-high speed broadband connection package.
Working in partnership with the Ministry of Education, SLT will identify the top 21 students who have achieved the highest results in the GCE Advanced Level Examination from school all across the island. The top 3 students of each of the 7 Advanced Level streams will be selected to be felicitated by His Excellency President Maithripala Sirisena and will receive SLT’s ultra-high speed broadband connection package equipped with all necessary devices to facilitate their undergraduate studies and empower their academic life. The service will be provided to them free of charge during the entire period of their undergraduate studies. Students will have the choice of selecting wired or 4G LTE fixed wireless connections.
The main reason behind this event is to encourage students and support them in the completion of their higher education as a responsible corporate citizen of Sri Lanka while at the same time improving Internet access among students all around the island and to ensure the use of the internet among students, to aid them in their studies and to help broaden their learning environment.
Thanks to the spread of its communication network across the entire island and being the fastest broadband network in the country, SLT remains in a unique position to provide the required platform for students to be benefited by ICT while completing their education, which will have a tremendous impact on students’ professional careers and future.
