Best value mobile data package for long term

Do you think people prefer to pay 2999 as opposed to 2675?

 

So it's appears USSD codes are better than visiting a True shop, as you can subscribe to True's six and twelve month packages that way.

Of course people want to pay the lowest price. The prices need to reflect what the operators announce on their websites. 

 

Found True 1 and 4 Mbps packages for 6-12 months at their website.

True 1Mbps / 1 year package is pretty good. Only 50 baht per month.

Why do they need to "reflect what is on their website"? Especially if you don't provide a link to the promo anyway. Where is the link to DTAC 90 day 10 Mbps package? What's the use of you including it, if there is no way that someone to subscribe to it? You haven't provided a page link, nor a USSD code.

That means that if you cannot personally find it on their website, then the people who read your blog may end up paying more than is necessary or simply not be able to access it at all.

A case in point; your initial insistence that True had no long term packages and now your persistence in posting 2999 baht for DTAC's 4 Mbps, when in fact they can pay 2675 baht for it.

 

If you are going to do something, do it properly. ;)

Do you expect me to subscribe the DTAC package and pay 2675 baht for nothing, just to verify that the USSD code does what you say and it's not to subscribe daily kangaroo jokes package?

 

It's overview of the offerings in Thailand.

So why do you include the DTAC 90 day 10 Mbps package on your page??

It is on the DTAC website? Where is the link to it on your page?

If you have only included it because of the USSD code I supplied, then why bother to put it on your page?

If you don't trust the USSD code then why include it at all??

 

If you are just doing it to please yourself, then enjoy. No need to have a public page. But if it is up as a service to your readers, include the USSD codes with caveats. Such as you haven't personally checked the code etc

Otherwise, don't bother copying information gleaned from this forum without the appropriate credits.

Do it properly or don't bother :)

I would be slightly frustrated to find the perfect plan for my usage, only to find that there was no way for me to subscribe to it.

There are many useful USSD codes out there that are no longer listed by the Networks.

I'm pretty sure that I saw it somewhere. But I couldn't find the source now, so I took the DTAC 10 Mbps package from the page. 

 

Thanks for your input.

What about the link to the Truemove H 10 Mbps package? I don't see a link to it on your page. But you have it posted as available

 

See my point? Useful info disappearing from your page because of a lack of a source.

How will the person subscribe to the True H 10 Mbps package? Are you posting it there just to frustrate them? 🙂

The Truemove H 10 Mbps information came directly from True shop and their brochure. 

 

Darn, you are stubborn. But if you are that stubborn, it must mean that you probably know what you are talking about 🙂

 

So, I give up and added the USSD codes to subscribe the services. These were for the packages I could find and verify myself. 

 

Can you provide me a link to DTAC and AIS websites or their brochures, where they state the packages and USSD codes. I'll then add those the the page. 

 

Btw, CAT is now also offering 4 and 6 Mbps long term sims.

Not all packages have a link. Some packages are advertised for a short time and then removed from sight. But they still work. Which is why you won't always find it on an official website.

AIS's 10 Mbps monthly offering a case in point.

 

 

Current link for AIS packages on your website is; https://m.ais.co.th/ontop-package-myais

But VAT may be added. Some people state that they aren't charged VAT via the AIS App.

 

DTAC website does not list the packages, but you can see them listed here; https://www.prodtac-internet.com/โปรเน็ตดีแทค.html including two new 10 Mbps packages from DTAC; 30 & 90 days.

 

In addition(it may be a step too far for you), but Truemove H's 90 day 6Mbps & 10 Mbps packages have free WiFi HotSpot usage included.

 

You should also warn that package prices(not SIM prices) are subject to 7% VAT. :)

If you would like a USSD code theme throughout, here you are;

 

AIS

 

1 Mbps 6 months  *777*7267# 

1 Mbps 12 months *777*7268#
4 Mbps 6 months *777*7269#
4 Mbps 12 months  *777*7270#

6 Mbps 6 Months  *777*7283#
6 Mbps 12 months  *777*7284#

 

Since you are doing a public service, I'll help you.

The price for the sim cards mentioned in my OP is now down to 1229 THB (obviously because they have to be activated this year or they will expire, after activation they are valid for one year).

Seems my assumption why these sim cards are so cheap was wrong.

I ordered another of these SIM cards, and this one is now valid to be activated until August 2019, so it wasn't a special one time promotion in 2018 but seems to be an ongoing promotion

I wonder how the shops on Lazada can sell it for less than half of what you would pay in regular shops

Presumably because a large part of the "regular" price is commission.

The prices are on oilinki's page. They were for inclusion there.

 

But no need for prices since everyone knows what they are.

 

600, 1200

1400, 2500

1800, 3500

 

plus VAT of course.
