31 Does Sri Lanka have e-mail?


This article is from the Sri Lanka FAQ, by Prasad Dharmasena dharma@eng.umd.edu with numerous contributions by others.

31 Does Sri Lanka have e-mail?

Lanka Academic Network (LAcNet), a not for profit organization created by
overseas Sri Lankans, provides an electronic mail service to the following
institutions in Sri Lanka. Sanjiva Weerawarana <saw@cs.purdue.edu>
operates the US end of the link. This connects to the SL hub (LEARN mail)
at the University of Moratuwa. This connection is NOT an internet link.
One cannot telnet or FTP to Sri Lanka, yet. Plans are underway to implement
a real-time internet connection ... real soon now. :-)
