On this page you'll find 

Internet Non Stop Max Speed - 4G/3G - 8 GB Data Limit Validity 30 days - 799 THB

2GB / 30 Days - 249 THB

Plus a load of other packages, just pick the one that suits your use case.

I think they hide it away deliberately.

What I've found is that all of these so-called "unlimited" packages are really false advertising. From what I've seen, all of those packages come with a set limit of data for which you get the full speed, and once you hit that data limit you're getting throttled.

 

Nothing to do with "unlimited".

 

Ironically, that isn't actually documented alongside those offers. Found out only after a couple call center calls.

 

Absolutely right. Thais need to consult a dictionary to see what unlimited means, or they are guilty of false advertising. But that is only in the headline. Look into the small print and they own up. So, they say it's unlimited and then they tell you there is a limit. As for offers, they seem to change monthly so it's a question of checking their website for the latest deal.

I bought the 4 mbps unlimited use one year prepaid sim from True and paid 990 baht for one full year of unlimited internet and i share my internet trought wifi using 4 devices connected and never have any problem with slow internet. For my girlfriend i bought the 6 months 200GB plus 100 GB youtube prepaid simcard from true that she can use internet when we are not at the same place at the same time. Her prepaid 6 months 300 GB sim costs less than 200 baht. To get these prices you have to buy from shopee and look for FLASH SALE. About once a week it is possible to buy at these extremly low prices. I dont need broadband i am fully satisfied with my 4 mbps mobile internet sim and we have at most used 1500GB in one month!

I think he is referring to the new packages you'll find now on the AIS website and promoted in the shops. It looks like packages for newly activated sim cards have a data limit now and the reduced speed after that is abysmal (64mbps, 386 etc). 

They had a unlimited max speed for 1500bht.

Is that one also gone?

It does indeed look like the unlimited packages of AIS and True are gone.

Dtac increased their prices drastically, 4mbps is now 650 per month + vat: http://www.dtac.co.th/en/prepaid/products/go-no-limit.html

Seems like there were too many people using too much bandwidth with these packages

 

Until not long ago when you made a fibre internet contract with True you got a 4 mbps unlimited sim card for free, now they also changed this to a sim card with a limited amount of traffic: http://trueonline.truecorp.co.th/package

Same for AIS Fibre packages which came with a 4mbps unlimited sim card before, they now have limits: http://www.ais.co.th/fibre/en/package_power4maxx.html

No, this is quite wrong.

 

DTAC are the only ones who have not changed their tariffs. Your link is simmply the wrong one. You link if for a data and calls bundle.

 

Data only is here; http://www.dtac.co.th/en/prepaid/products/net-no-limit.html

 

Same price as always.

 

 

As are AIS and TruemoveH prices, for SIMs registered before the 1st of Feb.

I read an article that said the companies were losing money with the unlimited packages. Were doing it to compete. But if all stop the offerings then no problemo for the companies only problemo for customers.

Hello everyone,

I am new to the Sim card and internet use. All I know is that 5 months ago I have been buying a new sim and no limit on data at speeds around 3-4 Mbps for 149 Bhat. Now in March AIS said it is no longer available. They offered me something for one month for 399 plus vat 427 Bhat. I thought I was getting the same 149 Bhat deal for 427 Bhat. But I was wrong after 5 GB of data my speed dropped to 128kb.  I use close to one GB a day. So 5 days into the one month deal I am out of internet now. I finally got here to the forum trying to seek help as to how I can prevent myself from making the same mistake of not knowing the concept of data volume and net speed. I realized now that what I need is a net speed of 1-4 Mbps but unlimited data volume, good for 30 days, which I have been getting all along the past few months. Could the members of the forum please be kind enough to guide me through the process of getting an internet connection with slower speeds like 1-4 Mbps but unlimited data from one of the 3 vendors available. Thanking you all

Do you have an existing SIM that was registered before the 1st of February?

 

If you do, just top up at least 321 baht tap in *777*7153# and then the dial button for 1 Mbps unlimited or top up 535 baht and then *777*7159# for 4 Mbps

 

If you are staying longer than two months, then think about a six month package. 1 Mbps for six months is 642 baht inclusive.

As long as you obtained and registered your SIM prior to the 1st of Feb this year, the codes above will work fine.

But if you are here on a retirement visa, then perhaps you need a longer term package, which works out a lot cheaper on a monthly basis.

 

Six months of 1 Mbps(0.125 MB/s) Internet costs just 642 baht. Twelve months 1284 baht.

 

Six months of 4 Mbps(0.5 MB/s) Internet costs just 1498 baht. Twelve months 2675 baht.

 

Six months of 6 Mbps(0.75 MB/s) Internet costs just 1926 baht. Twelve months 3745 baht.

 

Which suits you best?

Just buy this Sim card: https://www.lazada.co.th/products/4mbps-1-3g4g-i257626141-s396924058.html?spm=a2o4m.searchlist.list.3.6cca7705MBfYx1&search=1

When it arrives you have to activate it in a True shop. 12 months of 4mbps unlimited internet, so effectively 100 baht per month. For calling you have to top up money like any other prepaid sim card

The 'problem' with that solution is that once that year is up, there will be no more of those SIM and the OP will have only the poor package option. So, if he does go with the Truemove H SIM, he should take steps to keep the current AIS SIM active throughout the year, in so he can avail himself of the long term AIS packages above in the future.

 

On the other hand, the Truemove H SIM may still be open to the older Truemove H packages.

 

So good solution, but keep the current AIS SIM active if it was originally obtained and registered before the 1st of Feb.
