From CBNsat Subscribers Unite

It was a victory for the CBNSat Subscribers on Saturday 2nd December after seeing the green light back on their decoders PERMANENTLY after 6 long months. It was a long time than we initially thought and finally justice has prevailed. But the process took so long than we anticipated and finally the founder CEO of CBNSat had to sell it to Dialog Telekom for the good and benefit of everyone.

We happen to see the pictures on our TV's on Saturday evening but the bitterness of the whole fiasco which unfolded during the last 6 months is a black spot in the History of Sri Lanka. Finally all the allegations made against CBNSat have just vanished into thin air.

I take this moment to thank on behalf of CBNSat Subscribers Unite for everyone who stood behind bringing in justice to us, the CBNSat Subscribers. Mr. Muhunthan who fought right throughout to bring back CBNSat online and running the customer care right throughout to keep the subscribers informed.

And a very special BIG Thank you to the blog admin. The CBNSat blog was the most happening place for the subscribers all around the island for the past 6 months. It was the sole place for gathering information on the situation and exchanging the ideas. The first of its kind in Sri Lanka. And the blog paved way for the subscribers to meet on-line and then get together to form CBNSat Subscribers Unite to act as the sole representative body on the part of subscribers to bring in justice for the victimized subscribers. And my special thanks goes to all the senior bloggers prmo, rob, cbnsatvictim and mohan for helping out tremendously in all the matters which the CBNSat Subscribers Unite came across with. And I thank all the people who signed our online petition, All the news papers who published our articles and press releases on their news papers specially Sunday Times and Daily Mirror, Rivira and Nation news papers. Also I need to thank the staff of CBNSat who stayed with the company during this painful time.

And all the others who helped CBNSat subscribers to bring back their service.

THANK YOU FOR YOU ALL !

It’s very sad to say good bye to the HERO who fought in the battlefield. But we know that, you made that decision because of the CBNSat customers. I would like to take this opportunity to THANK YOU for all your efforts to take Sri Lanka to the next level risking everything including your life. WISH YOU noting but the BEST! Hats off to you Mr. Muhunthan Canagey

hats off to everyone that brought about this victory against all the odds of the mighty.

Its a bitter sweet victory as we had to lose the pioneer in DTH technology in Sri Lanka in the process for CBNSAT to survive.

Guess it will be a total new phase with dialog in the driving seat.

Thank you LISURA

We take this opportunity to thank Lisura immensely for not only for his initiative to form CBN sat Subscriber unite, but also all the hard work he has done to keep the fellow subscribers updated in many occasions. Specially to keep customers informed of results of the court proceedings as and when it happens. In order to achieve this task he worked indefatigably.

Lisura , keep up the good work, keep us informed of most updated news with regard to CBNSAT progress.

Cheers ROB

The CBNSat Fiasco is a good lesson to all of us to know the true nature of those in power who tolarate and give top posts to buggers that abuse the power given to them. We gave them the mandate and they started kicking our asses. There was never any indcation that those that were abusing their power was going to be reigned in and a fair deal was to be given to us citizens. When I went to meet the TRC assistant comminsinor who was in charge of this issue I was told to get a refund from CBNSat as he say no chance of them comming back on air.REMEMBER ; IT IS US CITIZENS, VOTERS WHO HAVE THE ULTIMATE POWER. WE CBNSAT CUSTOMERS AND LBNSAT CUSTOMERS WILL DO WELL TO REMEMBER THE INJUSTICE DONE TO THEM. Gahanda Gahanda wandina ewun modayo.
