I just noticed the limitation of plans in the myais app.

I.e reduction of speed.

One good thing , though. They seem to have introduced speed booster like dtac has had for a while.

 

 

AIS have always had that. Keep up. ;)

I have the same problem, currently I have the DTAC 10mbps/30days, but cannot find it anymore (bought it end of February).

Im thinking of going for 4g unlimited data/300mbps for 1099baht, but not sure if its worth... or internet + sim combo, e.g. http://trueonline.truecorp.co.th/package

 

Have you actually tried tapping the DTAC codes in?

 

*104*597# and then the Dial button for 30 days of 10 Mbps @ 695.50 baht or *104*598# for 90 days of 10 Mbps @ 1391 baht

As long as you registered your AIS SIM before the 1st of Feb, you can still subscribe to the old truly unlimited packages.

Are you sure? I did spend some time not long ago with AIS staff at Big C Extra and was told no speed increase options once on a plan, but I'm not a regular AIS user and I guess it was a case of hacker staff.

Have you used the boost option?

Dtac goes from 1mbps to around 10mbps when testing with fast.com. even though they quote a fantasy speed of 100.

You should never take the word of a salesperson as gospel.

If I say it is so, it is so.

 

Have been taking advantage of the AIS boost for years. Was much cheaper to buy the cheapest package and add the speed boost. 

Only changed when the six and twelve month unlimited speed cap came into existence.

To be fair, all networks speed are dependent on location. In some buildings AIS gives me high speeds with DTAC and Truemove H being low. In another, DTAC far better than the rest.

 

So, find out network is best for you at your location and go from there. 

 

As long as your SIM was registered before the 1st of Feb, all options are still open to you...and there are lots.

Yes, just try one of the old one day packages on your old SIM first. If it works, it makes it more likely that the one month version will do so too.

 

*104*397*9# 10 Mbps 41.73 baht

 

If you want to do a cheaper test; *104*377*9# dial for Unlimited at 1 Mbps max speed 26.75 baht

I got the 4mbps unlimited package for 30 days today and with the activation text came the info that the price for the package will change to 650 baht after March 28th onward. Don't know if it is also still unlimited or just internet non stop with a data limit.

 

The woman in the AIS shop said that all the old prices might not work after that date but she wasn't sure. So maybe if your old package is expiring soon and you still want the old prices, maybe get it before that date.

Where does all the money go?

I  calculated an estimate of the phone companies income v expenses for the day. My mind blew apart.

Don't know why they are increasing now?

Maybe 5g equipment.

The new product is listed as;

Unlimited internet 
Maximum speed of 4 Mbps 
Get 20 GB 
If used in full quantity 
Speed reduced to 128 Kbps

 

650 baht + VAT

 

 

I' guess you'll find out after the 28th if you are still in Thailand. Thanks for the 'heads up'.

Did you calculate the very high cost to rent the frequencies from the government ?

Sorry, I do include the government as a silent partner. Same argument for the government alone. Where does all the money go?

Frequency lease, labour Income and VAT collected by the government.

A freaking huge number.
