SLT Suspends Free Email Service Empty SLT Suspends Free Email Service

Sri Lanka Telecom has suspended their free email services with effect from 31st March 2018. They intend to charge Rs:250.00 or less per month (they are not sure of the exact fee and says Rs:250.00 or less) for the service who consents to remain with them in the future. Those who consents will be given an "enhanced" capacity of 1GB but G mail gives 15GB for free at present!

I am sure they will lose many customers to other providers of mail services as a result of this foolish decision. Such decisions are taken by those (politically appointed?) who are not aware of the current environment of this service.

They have requested Telecom Regulator for this change and awaiting for their decision to go forward. If they put their stamp to this foolish decision is a question.

I have decided to close my account immediately.

Who wants to pay even a cent to get a free email account and that too from a service provider like the SLT, when many others give you more for free. Shocked

Brilliant. What a fantastic foresight! My foot.

So paying Rs 250 to get a so called enhanced capacity of 1GB is their marketing strategy?
When world accessible free services are giving emails with better features, filters and
15 GB space , why does SLT brains think it is best to charge customers for under par service?

Another way to not gain but lose existing customers.

My poor country .. this is what happens when far sight is not a quality embedded in our genes.
