Mobitel Upahara Vs Dialog Blaster

Revolutionary postpaid package "Upahara" is selling like hot cakes these days and could be the most successful post paid package ever in Sri Lankan mobile market. In the meantime Blaster from Dialog has become a good opponent for Upahara. But it seems due to the nature of the advertising by both companies it has become a real mess  selecting a suitable package. There fore thought of doing a comparison between Upahara and Blaster.

                                  Mobitel Upahara                   Dialog Blaster  
Free Minutes      :                1000                                 1000

Free Minutes      :      Mobitel, SLT, Suntel           Only Dialog GSM
  Applicable to         LankaBell, Dialog CDMA

After 1000 to       :                0.50                                    2 

After 1000 to       :                0.50                                    3       
Other fixed

After 1000 to       :                  3                                       3
Other Mobile

Incoming             :                Free                                    Free

Monthly Rental    :                240                                     300

Connection          :               1500                                   1500

One disadvantage of Upahara is it only available for state sector workers and pensioners. But Upahara is much more cheaper than Dialog when we consider the call charges and average amount that we will be spending monthly. Upahara subscribers have the full freedom of talking an Mobitel, SLT, Dialog CDMA, Suntel, Lankabell number absolutely free of charge where Dialog users have to pay Rs 3 per every minute. However Upahara charges Rs 0.50 between 6.00 pm and 12.00 pm which could be another drawback.
However there are reports that Mobitel is also going to unveil a package for all Sri Lankans and it would be much better than everything on market hopefully.
