Affordable short term Internet Service Providers

Recommended Posts

I just moved into a condominium unit on a 3 months contract as I might be out of Thailand later. But there is not wifi or any internet available. 
I just need internet connection for 3 months which is affordable, unlimited and decently fast. Max 1000Baht/month.

 

What are the options? 

 

I contacted true and 3BB and they said they can only have 1 year internet contract. 

 

Help me!

some condominiums have internet ready, you should have picked one with internet.

you can use 4g from AIS a bit more than 1000 baht per month for unlimited traffic.

or use 6-10 mbit/s unlimited for a cheaper price.

Your information is both inaccurate and out of date.

 

AIS no longer has unlimited packages for new SIMs, other than perhaps the package costing 1605 baht.

 

DTAC's packages are still unlimited and if he joins today he will get double the speed for two months; http://www.dtac.co.th/en/prepaid/products/net-no-limit.html

 

so 535 baht per month for an up to 8 Mbps data connection or 695.50 baht for up to 20 Mbps.

 

Of course he will need a 4G modem of sorts.

If possible, check your settings on phone or Laptop, what wifi is available. Try your utmost to converse with these that show to ask 'how much' for password.

Well.. They still have it.  And their FUP are :

*FUP-Fair Use Policy, After related data limit is reached for 299-699 B. packages, 4G/3G speed is reduced to 128Kbps.
*FUP-Fair Use Policy, After related data limit is reached for 899 B. packages, 4G/3G speed is reduced to 384Kbps
*1,099-1,999B. packages, 4G speed is maximum speed up to 300Mbps

 

NOTE: I just noticed that this is for the Postpaid SIMs.

So then they don't have it, do they? Slowing down to 128 kbps is 'unlimited' only in legalese and since we are writing about short term, we go back to the package for 1605 baht, which is way over budget.

Not sure what your post has to do with Short Term Internet Provider...

They, AIS, still having the unlimited data package. But not the unlimited top speed.

 

The NET Sim Fair Use Policy are :
 

  • 299, 399, 499 and 699 Baht  (1, 2, 3, 5 and 8 GB) packages can use the internet at the max speed as determined by each package’s internet allowance. When the allowance is reached, subscribers can continue using the internet at the speed of 128 Kbps.
  • 899 (8GB) and 1,099 (14GB) Baht packages can use the internet at the max speed as determined by each package’s internet allowance. When the allowance is reached, subscribers can continue using internet at the speed of 384 Kbps.

Emailing and reading TV works fine on the reduced speed, and you still have the Unlimited WiFi, which you can use on locations outside, in malls,  or maybe at your home too.

Rgds,

 

 

Is there something wrong with your reasoning?

 

Why are you continuing to push expensive, limited data packages with AIS, when there is still truly unlimited packages available with DTAC?

They still have it, and always had it. Just the package Super Speed Unlimited has dropped.

The unlimited data is still active, just throttled. 128kbps for the lower package and 384 for those in the range 800-1100, which is moderate.

It is just one of the options you can consider if you stay short term here.

No. You are wrong.

 

No longer for new SIMs. Throttled to 128 kbps is not unlimited. That's just a marketing gimmick. 

You don't seem to know much on the subject.

I will ask you again; Why are you continuing to push expensive, limited data packages with AIS, when there is still truly unlimited packages available with DTAC?

Rgds,

 

 

Do you understand "Unlimited"? This is unlimited; http://www.dtac.co.th/en/prepaid/products/net-no-limit.html

 

The one that you mention are simply Volume packages that are throttled down after the volume of data is used up. Don't confuse yourself and others with ridiculous marketing terms.

Yes, I already posted the DTAC link in post #3, so what is your point after pushing expensive and not fit for purpose AIS packages?
