A customer needs to have a 5G capable mobile phone that is compatible with Dialog's 5G network and a 4G compatible SIM (USIM), whilst also being within one of the 5G trial coverage areas. If a customer is using an old SIM which does not support 4G, then it needs to be upgraded.

If you already have a 5G device (matching the compatible list given below) you can trial the network compatibility yourself. Devices have been set up at the Dialog Customer Care Centres below as well, allowing you to walk in and try it out.

Data consumed while on 5G will be free during the trial period. However, if the device moves to a 4G coverage area while on the data session, the quota used on 4G will be charged as per the normal tariff rates applicable to the connection.

We have already activated 5G on identified devices that have 5G compatibility at the time of the launch of the 5G network. These customers have received an SMS informing them of the 5G trial network service activation. However, if you are facing any problems in latching onto the 5G network, you can lodge a request to connect to the network via the web portal below. Just select your device model and enter your mobile number.

Even though the latest Apple devices are 5G ready, compatibility depends upon the commercial availability of the 5G network in Sri Lanka

The Samsung S21 devices can experience 5G if they have updated to the latest software version and are within the 5G coverage locations. However, the compatibility may depend on Samsung’s future software releases

5G is currently launched using a trial frequency that has been allocated by The Telecommunications Regulatory Commission of Sri Lanka ( TRCSL.) The objective of this launch is to allow Sri Lankans to experience 5G. Therefore, the service is currently offered free of charge.

Although the phone’s hardware is capable of supporting 5G, the 5G functionality in firmware is not enabled for Sri Lankan operators in phones brought from other regions.

5G is an additional service activated on top of the existing services.

Dialog has tested the functionality of 5G against most of the commonly used services without any disturbance observed, but this does not completely eliminate the possibility of some services not functioning while in the coverage areas.
