Aye, the ol’ skull and bones. I haven’t been having much success in recent months though.

 

I normally try watching a BIT of LORD of the rings

I'm on AIS which is 'supposed' to be 100Mbit.   Using the site you posted I got:

75ms / D 41.54Mbit / U 30.09Mbit

I have had 3BB about 5 years now and found them to be good, actually better than 2 of the big providers in Oz. Recently my internet performance dropped a lot. I have a thing called a "Fing" box which monitors my network. One of its tasks is to perform a daily speed test and emails results to me at the start of the month for the previous month. Thats how I knew performance dropping. Called 3BB up and they sent tech out who immediately replaced modem for new dual band (sounds as same in OP) and now great speeds even on wifi on the 5Ghz band.

One test at dospeednet.com : 

Average Download : 25.09 Mbps
Average Upload : 11.46 Mbps
Capital : Bangkok
Total SpeedTest : 3538

Should that be dospeedtest.com?

I used to know a tech there I could talk to, but, he's long gone; I'd bet that most of  the front-desk people at the local ISP's are going to be non-technical. If I were starting over, I'd certainly look around at all the vendors, and try to get information from people who lived in my neighborhood about their current experience ... since location may determine the number of "hops"/switches/routers between you and a really high-speed pipe.

 

I'd definitely post here, and on the TV internet forum, with as much detail as possible regarding my needs/goals.

did a change some yr and half back with TOT from ADSL to fibre , once it reached our village.

got 10 times the DL/UL speed for 200 baht/month less.

half year back, I saw a advert from TOT and got an update for same money but double speed again.

speed in general very good, except some VPN connections at time slow

Also just did the upgrade and very happy with it. My son told me Fiber should be available where we live and the speed of the VDSL connection we had was really going down hill lately. Made appointment a week ago and they came yesterday, same monthly cost and vastly improved speeds. According to dospeedtest.com:

I prefer using speedof.me, which tests consecutive larger files and gives a more real world result of 135 Mbps download and 22 Mbps upload. That is at least 4 times more than we used to have at the best of times with the old connection. The main advantage is that now 2 simultaneous Netflix streams don't suck up all the available bandwidth.

Were you using the VPN when you did your speed testing, the speeds you gave are very slow for fiber?

Were you using WiFi or Ethernet when you got those results?  Speeds are decent but that Latency is terrible.  I always try to use Ethernet and the ISP's test site to eliminate extraneous stuff.  In the case of 3BB try again at this site:

Was not using VPN when testing. Results using SpeedOf.Me: 68.3mps dl, 6.08mps ul.
