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
After 1000 to : 3 3
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.
