I bought a 6GB Dialog sim card from a local store in Colombo for 750 rupees (about $5) - 150 rupees for the card and 600 to top up. According to my tour guide/driver, the price would be double at Dialog's airport counter (located just outside the arrival hall) -  1299 rupees.

Dialog outlets are everywhere in Sri Lanka.

To get the sim card, you'll need to show your passport and have an unlocked phone. 6GB was enough for my 8-day visit. The card was only valid for 30 days, and here are some Dialog sim card pluses:

  • Good customer service - I didn't speak to a machine
  • Wide coverage
  • Decent speed

For additional info go to Dialog's website:

Also, most hotels in Sri Lanka have excellent WiFi.
