Sri Lanka SIM Card Video Comparison: Which One Is The Best?

5.0 rating

Looking for the BEST Sri Lankan SIM Card? Could it be Dialog? Or Mobitel? What about Hutch? Maybe it is secretly Airtel Sri Lanka? Well, I will talk about these operators AND do a speed test with them in this video!

The telecom situation in Sri Lanka is rather standard. 4 operators are competing with each other. Dialog is the largest operator, followed by Mobitel, Hutch, and Airtel Sri Lanka.

All operators, except for Airtel Sri Lanka, have nationwide 4G/LTE access. Airtel Sri Lanka started with 4G/LTE in Colombo in May 2020, 7 years after Dialog, the first operator to start with 4G/LTE, launched their 4G/LTE network.

Even then, each Sri Lankan operator has its own traits. Dialog has the best coverage. Mobitel, by Sri Lanka Telecom, was the first operator in Sri Lanka. Hutch has the most packages available. And Airtel focuses on the Sri Lankan youth.

Which Sri Lankan SIM card is the best? There is only one way to find out – by testing them all!
