Abstract

Today internet is considered as the largest network of networks which provides various services to the people such as a mammoth source of information, source of entertainment etc. But most of the people don't get the opportunity to access internet due to a number of reasons. The lack of viable technologies to provide internet at lower cost is one of the main reasons faced by many countries in the world.

 

BPL is a widely discussed technology among world power distribution companies as a way of delivering broadband services to each and every home connected to power grid. Numerous field trials and limited deployments are underway in different parts of the world .Mass scale commercial role outs are yet to be initiated and many scholars have predicted, in future BPL will be preferred most as a 'last mile" solution to provide internet services to homes.

 

In this research it is examined the issues pertaining to technology, infrastructure and standards in implementing BPL in Sri Lanka. This research also presents recommendations, which may help to solve most of the identified issues.
