Buying a SIM card in Laos

Laos has 4 GSM network operators: Unitel, Laotel, TPlus (formerly Beeline) and ETL.

All 4 mobile telecom operators are partly or fully owned by the Lao government; call and data rates are similar and within agreed criteria to allow equitable revenue share between them.

Tourists visiting Laos can easily purchase a SIM card from one of the operators’ retail shops or from a street vendor. The prices for SIM cards in Laos range from around $2 to $5, and they usually come with a certain amount of data, text messages, and call minutes.

There is no ID necessary for purchase.

When purchasing a sim card, it is recommended to avoid buying an expensive one at the airport or in the last minute, as prices tend to be higher and you may be limited in your options.  Travel to laos?
