Never used AIS only tru
I'm used to 22mbps but interestingly do I need that speed? Almost certainly not

But is 1mbps too slow? Maybe I should try it and see. As you say should be OK for basic chat and checking websites. No point in paying for speed you don't need

I would try it for 1 month and if ok then pay for 6 more(I have dual sim)

Thanks

You can try any of the packs out for one or two days, even a week. 

Just tell in which you are interested and I'll provide the USSD code.

31.03 baht for 1 Mbps over 48 hours *900*1752#

41.73 baht for 4 Mbps over 48 hours *900*1753#

52.43  baht for 6 Mbps over 48 hours *900*1754#

 

That will give you ample opportunity to stress test.

Outside Thapra Mall tonight I was running 4.9 down, 6.6 up. Im going to test it in the city center tomorrow. Back here at my condo its 3.87/4.47 but im easily streaming Netflix.

 

I dont know if the package I bought was "the best" but for the equivalent of $45 for 6 months Im damn happy with the service. I do lose the GPS in the MRT or in Malls on occasion.

The Tru package I've used last few years or so....


Double net package 199 plus tax 7 %(so 213 baht so approx 7 baht per day) for 1 month.

Gives 'unlimited' data but after you use 1gb the speed(approx 22mbps)drops to 0.128 mbps (slow!)

Surely even the 1 yr package at a steady 4mbps is a better deal than that one isnt it? SO you basically getting 1gb data and then it slows down just enough to surf?

Certainly not if he doesn't live in Thailand.

 

Something like this; https://www.lazada.co.th/products/plus-6-200gb100gb-i232884842-s357028387.html  200 GB of data at 1Mbps over six months for 315 baht looks better value.

You also get another 100 GB allowance over six months for YouTube, LINE TV & Facebook.

 

If the OP makes do with a 1GB plan that slows down afterwards, it seems that 1 Mbps will be enough.

 

I actually have one of these and don't have any issue with day to day usage. You only notice the speed when you are actually downloading or uploading a file. But for everyday usage such as browsing and social media it does the job.

I bought it as a test and now it's staying in the phone.

The faster plans are needed if you intend to tether, a laptop for instance.

If you can make do with 1mbps then it this is a good option 200+100gb. I doubt at 1mbps you will be able to use the data in the time fame. Thats over 1gb per day and 500mb for Youtube and Facebook.

Its a pitty they dont these promotions without the need to be getting a new simcard everytime.

The cheaper promotions ones link the links on lazada require you to have a new sim yes.

You can use some of the promotions with same sim card but they generally cost

slightly more.

If you change network in doing so, it might be possible. But not if it's a new SIM for the same network.

 

But then as 2008bangkok states, you can still subscribe to other packages on your existing SIM at very reasonable prices.

The OP has now awoken from his UK slumber!

Disappointed re new sim cards. I currently have a Tru sim card (PAYG) with a number I'd prefer to keep ideally

Three Q's

1. Re those USSD's given yesterday , surely those can be punched in on my current set up(no new sim needed)?

2. If I then want to take up that offer longer term(hopefully 1mbps will be enough I agree ) on those attractive terms, must I go through a lazada type deal requiring a seperate sim? Will assume Tru not offering..

If so that would mean having to take out my UK sim(dual sim phone) which is just a minor ball ache.

3. Unless of course these cheap data packs also come with calls? In which case that will have a new number which is OK no ideal(possible to change?)

Sorry many questions, normally id call tru but I'm in UK (plus they may not offer these deals 'directly' anyway

Thanks

1. Yes. They can be utilised on an existing Truemove H SIM.

 

2. Depends what deal you want. If 1 Mbps for six months, just tap in *900*9959# and it will cost you 642 baht. But....that particular code states valid until 31.10.18 and apparently you will arrive later than that. So you'll need to recheck/remind after the 31st.

 

3. If you get a SIM on the same network, you won't be able to port the number. No free calls are included. Usually around 1 baht per minute.

Thanks again!

Naturally as I'm coming to HH for 6 months I'm interested in saving money on my previous plans ie PAYG calls plus a 1 month data pack(213 incl tax)

So calls and data pack for 6 months would be ideal if tru offer at reasonable price

But I'm happy to split them if lazada (data only) works out cheaper... Or any other combo.... I'm a proper skinflint!

I'll get on the websites tonight, thanks again for the Intel.

In Ploen Chit on the corner of Wireless and Suk, my 6 month AIS 6gig was giving me 5.67 down and 6.86 up.

Um the AIS plan is like 320B a month. Half price to your plan.

Ok thanks, I thought other poster was quoting monthly not 6 monthly. However I will stay with DTAC for now. I find it better than my other SIM for True for speed and get a reliable 10mbps down at the 3 different main locations I use it at.
