Laos: 4 Best Prepaid SIM Cards Buying Guide (2023)

Laos (Lao People's Democratic Republic) – known for its waterfalls, nature & temples.

It is also the only landlocked country in Southeast Asia, but the country still has a lot to offer.

Such as the famous Kuang Si Waterfall or Tad Yuang Waterfall – must see.

But if you do not want to deal with too many other people and tourists, consider going to Bolaven Plateau or Khon Phapheng Falls.

Landmarks like the Patuxay Monument, Pha That Luang Vientiane, Phoisi Hill & Wat Xiengthong can also not be missed.

Oh, and of course the night market in Vientiane.

Being bored in Laos? No way! No reason to be.

Another thing you should not do when in Laos is roam internationally – International roaming can be expensive.

That is why I always recommend local prepaid SIM cards or eSIM and even travel eSIMs so that you can enjoy low rates for data, minutes & SMS.

Fortunately, mobile data rates are low in Laos – one of the lowest in the region, for that matter.

So, how much do SIM cards cost in Laos?

You can get a Lao SIM card for 10 000 LAK (0.65 USD) from Unitel, Lao Telecom (LaoTel), TPlus (formerly Beeline) & ETL in their stores. Lao Telecom has tourist SIM cards for 15 000 LAK (1 USD) and 25 000 LAK (1.60 USD). SIM cards are also sold at Luang Prabang International Airport (LPQ) and Vientiane-Wattay International Airport (VTE).

Those prices are low, indeed – just wait until you find out that the cost of mobile data is low too.

Especially for those coming from Europe and North America.

In this guide, I will go over everything you need to know about buying a SIM card in Laos. Let's go.

Can You Buy a SIM Card in Laos?

Anyone living in or visiting Laos can buy a Lao SIM card from the mobile network operators (Unitel, Lao Telecom (LaoTel), TPlus (formerly Beeline) & ETL) with no restrictions.

You do have to comply with the SIM card registration regulations (new since 2021 and enforced from 2022).

Moreover, you need a phone that supports the frequencies used in the country (preferably all of them to have the most optimal experience while in Laos).

Furthermore, you need to have a SIM-lock-free device.

Where Can You Buy a SIM Card in Laos?

You can get a Laos SIM card in Unitel, Lao Telecom (LaoTel), TPlus (formerly Beeline) & ETL stores. SIM cards are also sold at Luang Prabang International Airport (LPQ) and Vientiane-Wattay International Airport (VTE).

You can expect to pay the following for Lao SIM cards:

  • Unitel Laos: 10 000 LAK
  • Lao Telecom (LaoTel): 10 000 LAK
  • TPlus Laos (formerly Beeline Laos): 10 000 LAK
  • ETL Laos: 10 000 LAK

The following Lao mobile operators also have SIM cards targeting tourists:

  • Unitel Laos: N/A – but SIM cards are sold at airports
  • Lao Telecom (LaoTel): 15 000 LAK & 25 000 LAK
  • TPlus Laos (formerly Beeline Laos): N/A – but SIM cards are sold at airports
  • ETL Laos: N/A – but SIM cards are sold at airports

My friends at Internet in Laos recently launched a service allowing you to purchase a Lao SIM card before arrival – and it will be waiting for you in your accommodation (in Vientiane only) when you arrive!

The SIM cards will be registered (required per Lao telecommunications law as of 2022) and ready to use when you plug it in – truly plug-and-play.

Honestly, getting a Lao SIM card through Internet in Laos will be cheaper than most options for data for Laos (travel SIM cards and eSIMs, let alone roaming) while competitively priced.

Depending on your needs and travel plans, Internet in Laos will send you a Lao SIM card with the best performance in the areas you plan to visit.

Moreover, if you are already in Laos but have yet to get a Lao SIM card, Internet in Laos can deliver it quickly to you (the current record is two hours, but I have been told this is not a standard… so pre-order your SIM card before arrival!) without you having to deal with the Lao bureaucracy.

Can You Use Your Phone in Laos?

Laos uses GSM technology for mobile communications. CDMA phones will not work in Laos. If your phone has a SIM card slot, then it supports GSMA (99% of the phones do support GSM nowadays).

Traditional European frequencies are used in Laos, which are mostly used in ITU Regions 1 and 3 (Africa, Asia (including the Middle East), Europe & Oceania).

The Americas (North-, Central– & South America + the Caribbean – ITU Region 2) use American frequencies, which differ from the European ones.

ITU Regions Map

If you bought your phone in Africa, Asia, Europe, or Oceania (ITU regions 1 and 3), you should not experience any issues with using your phone in Laos.

If you purchased your phone in the Americas (ITU Region 2) and have a low/medium-end device (without Tri-Band or Quad-Band) support, then there is a possibility you cannot use your phone when in Laos or can only use slower networks (3G or 2G).

If you have a medium/high-end device with Tri-Band or Quad-Band support, you can use your phone in Laos (to some extent) – also on 4G/LTE (and soon 5G NR).

Mobile Operators, Networks & Frequencies in Laos

Laos has four mobile operators offering prepaid services easily accessible for travelers:

  • Unitel Laos
  • Lao Telecom (LaoTel)
  • TPlus Laos (formerly Beeline Laos)
  • ETL Laos

The following frequencies are used in Laos:

  • 2G: 900 MHz & 1800 MHz
  • 3G: 2100 MHz
  • 4G/LTE: 1800 MHz (Band 3)
  • 5G NR: N/A – not being rolled out yet

You can learn more about frequencies in the video below.

To check whether your phone will work in Laos, check out this page by Will My Phone Work (may be outdated or inaccurate at times).

Again, make sure your phone is unlocked. Otherwise, you will not be able to use any SIM card except the one from your home operator (meaning you have to roam internationally or buy another unlocked phone that does support the frequencies listed above).

If you want to learn how international roaming works, this guide explains it in-depth. If you wonder why it is often so expensive to roam, this article explains the hidden reason they do not want you to know.

VoLTE & VoWiFi in Laos

Both VoLTE (Voice over LTE (4G) – also known as HD Voice) are available in Laos. However, not all mobile operators offer both services.

This means that your phone does not have to downgrade to 2G or 3G when making a call in Laos (unlike mobile operators that do not support VoLTE).

The following mobile operators offer VoLTE only in Laos:

  • Lao Telecom (LaoTel)

I am not sure whether Unitel, TPlus (formerly Beeline Laos) & ETL offer VoLTE or VoWiFi.

VoWiFi is, as the name implies, calling on a WiFi connection as opposed to on a cellular network.

5G NR in Laos

Commercial 5G NR has been available in Laos since September 2020. It is available on the Lao Telecom (LaoTel) network. Unitel has been holding trials. Lao Telecom offers 5G NR to prepaid customers (although its coverage is limited).

Best SIM Card in Laos

If you want to get the best SIM card in Laos, I recommend going with Unitel. It has the best coverage and the fastest speeds.

Best eSIM in Laos

Unitel and Lao Telecom (LaoTel) offer eSIMs to prepaid customers.

TPlus (formerly Beeline Laos) and ETL do not have eSIMs at all – not even for postpaid customers.

Note that the Lao mobile operators require your identification (passport) for eSIMs and physical SIM cards (will be discussed later).

Therefore, if you wish to get an eSIM for Laos without personal detail capturing, you can get the Laos (Pak Ou Mobile) eSIM from Airalo.

You have one option:

  1. Laos/Pak Ou Mobile 1 GB eSIM for 7 days

Just like in Europe, many readers tend to visit multiple Asian countries, so they would rather have a travel eSIM covering multiple countries than just one (like Laos).

The Asialink eSIM can be used in 13 14 countries in East Asia and Southeast Asia:

  • Cambodia
  • China
  • Hong Kong
  • Indonesia
  • Japan
  • Laos
  • Macau
  • Malaysia
  • Philippines
  • Singapore (new)
  • South Korea
  • Taiwan
  • Thailand
  • Vietnam

With the Asialink eSIM, you can save a lot of money by skipping the initial SIM card costs per country you visit.

Laos Mobile Speeds, Mobile Internet Prices & Insights

Flag of Laos

Laos is one of the cheaper travel destinations in Southeast Asia.

Another thing that is (incredibly) cheap is mobile data rates in the country.

The average price for 1 GB of data in Laos is 15 000 LAK (0.99 USD), around the Asian average of 1.47 USD. The world average is 3.12 USD.

While this average is indeed low, more than 15 Asian countries (excluding the Middle East) have a lower average cost for 1 GB of data.

Laos Average Mobile Data Rates 2022

Yeah, the cost of mobile data is really low in (Southeast) Asia.

As mentioned in the introduction, one mobile operator offers 150 GB of data for just 200 000 LAK (a bit more than 13 USD), so the data allowances are generous in Laos.

The only Southeast Asian countries with a higher average cost of mobile data are Brunei (2.40 BND/1.70 USD) and Myanmar (2078 MMK/1.11 USD).

Asia (excluding the Middle East) Mobile Data Rates Summaries 2022

So you pay almost nothing for mobile data in Laos, but will your speeds be nothing too?

Not really – but they are not fast either.

Laos' median mobile download speed is around 26 Mbps.

For reference, the global median download speed is around 31 Mbps at the moment.

Laos' neighbors China (89.32 Mbps), Thailand (34.63 Mbps) & Vietnam (38.23 Mbps) have faster median download speeds than itself.

Cambodia (17.01 Mbps) and Myanmar (25.67 Mbps) are slower.

Even then, Laos' mobile download speeds have basically stayed the same year on year (25 Mbps in 2021 vs. 26 Mbps in 2022).

Okay, now it is time to know which mobile operator is the fastest in Laos.

That would be Unitel, hands down, followed by Lao Telecom (LaoTel).

ETL and TPlus (formerly Beeline Laos) are on the slower end, especially outside urban areas.

Although they have improved in recent years.

In terms of coverage, Unitel wins again, followed by Lao Telecom.

You certainly want to avoid ETL and TPlus if you plan on visiting rural areas.

Also, do not expect any reception high in the mountains – not even with Unitel 😜.

With incredibly low SIM card prices, great nationwide coverage, decent download speeds, and incredibly low mobile data rates, you should have a good network experience in Laos.

Currency in Laos

100 000 Lao Kip Bank Note
© Bank of the Lao P.D.R./ທະນາຄານ ແຫ່ງ ສ. ປ. ປ. ລາວ

Laos uses the Lao Kip with the symbol LAK (which will be used throughout this guide).

However, prices are often listed as or ₭N. For example, 25 LAK = ₭/₭N 25.

For reference, below are some exchange rates between LAK and USD (US Dollars):

  • 1000 LAK = 0.06 USD
  • 10 000 LAK = 0.65 USD
  • 100 000 LAK = 6.50 USD
  • 1 000 000 LAK = 65.10 USD

For up-to-date LAK:your currency (let's say THB – Thai Baht) exchange rates, use the Wise Currency Converter tool.

If your credit/debit card charges you foreign exchange fees, get yourself a Wise Borderless Account and Debit Card.

Their fees are MUCH lower than banks and credit card companies charge you (and Wise is transparent about their fees, unlike banks).

I have saved literal THOUSANDS of Australian Dollars and Euros, my main currencies, when using Wise abroad when traveling compared to my debit and credit cards.
