Kilinochchi to get additional telephone lines

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 17 December 2003, 10:56 GMT]
A new Telephone Exchange capable of supporting 500 land lines to Kilinochchi district has been built in Paranthan and new telephone services are to begin starting from this Friday, said S.Kanagasooriar, Director of Sri Lanka Telecom NorthEast district.

Currently Kilinochchi has a temporary setup of about 60 telephone lines supported by temporary microwave links that operate as part of the Jaffna exchange using the same exchange code 222.

Once the Kilinochchi lines are connected to the new Paranthan exchange, additional 40 lines to Kilinochchi will become servicable immediately, he added.

A new microwave tower has been constructed in Paranthan to provide connectivity to the Paranthan exchange from the national telecom infrastructure. The exchange code 222 currently being used behind the area code 021 will change to 228 for Kilinochchi/Paranthan lines, Mr. Kanagasooriar said.

He also said that efforts are underway to provide wireless services to Kilinochchi district, and base stations with cellular towers will be constructed in a few population centers to facilitate the use of cell phones in Kilinochchi district.
