dc.description.abstract This is to identify the drawbacks of existing microwave transmission systems in Sri Lanka and to identify the worthiness of changing to fiber optical transmission systems. As the second part of the study Sri Lankan customer preferences on fixed data connectivity has been analyzed./ 1 or the first part of the study 5 telecommunication operators in Sri Lanka participated to the study bv providing the transmission network details. The study was mainly focused on the capacity, cost, and quality of transmission networks that have noticeable impact telecommunication business in Sri Lanka. The data was collected through a questionnaire which was developed using previously tested questions as well as self developed questions./ As first part of the analysis, the finding shows that there are number of critical issues faced by the operators due to the transmission systems. As the analysis those are mainly due to the microwave transmission systems & caused due to improper planning & installations in most of the times. Clear analysis has been done on the recovery process of a fiber optical network investment within the study./ l or the second part 68 participants were volunteered in providing the data relevant to the existing and newly required data connection. All the data were gathered through another questionnaire which consists with different kinds of customer specifications./ Findings show that there is a tendency for high speed fixed data connection. Willingness of the customers in quality of service and the cost concerns also has been compared with the operator cost concerns in order to have win win solutions. As the analysis it shows that operators should offer group packages ol fixed data connectivity in same geographical areas to gain the market share.
