Travel Tip: 3G Prepaid SIM in Maldives

14 Sep. 2013 Posted by zenno in Travel Tip

Upon exiting the international arrival hall at Male Airport, turn to your left. You will find a Dhiraagu shop. I got a 3G Prepaid SIM Card + additional 4.5GB of data for a total of US$55.
Plugged it into a Huawei Mifi router and it more than lasted my 7 days stay - laptop surfing the internet + mobile phone messages + posting photos online. Speed was very decent, I got about 4 mbps in the resort we stayed in. Room wifi rates at the resort were around US$30 a day, although there was free wifi available at the main lobby and common pool area.

Info correct as of 2 March 2013.
