Best Prepaid Sim Cards in Fiji

There are 2 main mobile operators on the beautiful islands of Fiji:

  • Vodafone Fiji
  • Digicel Fiji

Vodafone Fiji

  • This is the main telecom service provider with the highest number of customers and arguably the best telecom coverage in the Islands of Fiji and throughout the archipelago.
  • NOTE: You can purchase one of the Vodafone prepaid sim cards from Inkk Mobile which resells the sim cards at lower rates.
  1. 2G speeds are on 900 MHz and covers all the islands especially the remote islands.
  2. 3G on about 2100 MHz is found in most areas of the mainland with a coverage of about 95.7% Fijians.
  3. 4G/LTE using 800 MHz ( band 20) and 1800 MHz ( band 3) is given out for prepaid and has a coverage that extends to almost the entire cities and towns.
  • Vodafone is the pioneer telecom service provider and has been on the market until the tear 2008 when Digicel was introduced.
  • I'd recommend purchasing vodafone as your preferred prepaid sim card as it is the best choice.

Where to buy Vodafone Prepaid Sim cards

  • In their major stores and outlets across the archipelago.
  • You can also buy a sim card from their store in Nadi International Airport, at convenience stores, supermarkets and any operators stores.
  • NOTE: I recommend purchasing one from an official store as registration of a sim card purchased locally is mandatory.

Digicel Fiji

  • It has more aggressive prices but its coverage is lower than that of Vodafone.
  • Starter packs with Digicel prepaid sim cards are available at all their stores in the archipelago and other outlets.
  • NOTE: Free sim cards sometimes come with an extra 500 MB for all tourists at the Nadi International Airport.

The Big Phat Data

  • These are data packages that come with free unlimited on net minutes, and free unlimited Facebook, WhatsApp, Facebook and Linkedin.
  • I'd recommend making good use of this data plan.
