Buying SIM card in the airport at 2AM in the morning?

Hello,

Are there the shops which sell phone SIM cards open at 2AM in the morning at the Bandaranaike Airport? Which operator do you recommend for unlimited high speed internet?

Thank you!

There are three providers and they are open 24/7.

we bought a Dialog package, sim and 35 GB of data for 1600 LKR. The data was enough for 2 1/2 weeks but talk minutes ran out a few times and had to be reloaded, which was very easy to do at any corner store.

Hi Laviniam,

Can you please share which plan you got that included 35gb of data? Because Dialog website states only 10gb for the tourist plan (for 1299 lkr).
