TOT start with 3 month contracts 

That, really, is interessting and would fit perfect for the OP.

I just checked the TOT website, and couldn't find these conditions yet, but will post if found. If not posted, please link the source and or copy the information, so the information would be of great help for the OP on this short term.

It seems that DTAC has now also jumped on the throttling bandwagon.

Prices have gone up. So now you are getting much less for your money.

 

A better bet is to pick up a few SIMs via Lazada; https://www.lazada.co.th/products/true-4mbps-200100gb-6-i265207202-s412358601.html

 

or

 

https://www.lazada.co.th/products/sim-net-true-4g-unlimited-4mbps-lot-30662-i113119201-s116516313.html

 

 

or purchase a volume data package in the first instance, without the capped speed and capped volume nonsense.

For instance you can purchase a 5 GB over 7 days package from Truemove H for 105.93 baht. 20 GB over 28 days costs under 424 baht. 

A lot cheaper than the above suggestion of 20 GB capped at 4 Mbps for 695.50.

 

Changing times need creative solutions, not just copying and pasting from the network websites.

Glad you noticed, reason I didn't reply on your post was I was trying to find out where the -REAL- unlimited package was at DTAC as you were saying.. Didn't find it.

Now you have picked up that too. Ok 🙂

 

The same goes with True, just checked everywhere.. but nope.. no right deal that the OP can use. I am using AIS (volume based) and True (unlimited and ''unlimited'' ) myself, only one sim with the real unlimited, until that one expires later this year (12-month activation). Reactivation would give me the new policy.

Not sure about these.. these are the sim that I am using too, the ''unlimited'' depends on when you did the activation and subscription.

Interessting sims. Just read the conditions and it sounds resonable, after the period it will turn into a normal sim. 
For the OP this is a great solution, 200 GB that he can use in his 3 months stay. (the other 100GB is for social media and video).

 

My sugession is that he goes to a True shop or agency first, to ask for these sims.

And.. don't get a sim on the airport on arrival, which are just fine for a week stay.

Was trying to make a quick overview for the OP, then we can suggest several options to choose from.

Creativity is the right word. Sometime it rewards to use two sims.
 

All I focused was that: 3 months,  budget 1000 each month and speed  being reliable.

(My experience is that 384kbps was ok for watching youtube 360k and wifi hotspot for laptop)

 

Any information are welcome.  The grail is all of those TODAY available on one sheet next to each other, which I had before but outdated as you noticed from dtac too.

Rgds,

 

 

The website changed at midnight on the 1st of Feb. That is today, which is why you could no longer find it.

Up until midnight on the 28th, they were still offering the full speed packages and double the speed for free at that. As illustrated in post #3.

 

FYI, the unlimited packages are still available with Truemove H and AIS, just not for SIMs registered from the 1st of Feb. If you have a SIM registered before that, you can still avail yourself of the truly unlimited packages.

This may be the case for DTAC too, haven't checked.

That's a good find. They are found here too :

How do you propose that they order the SIM from treemobile? 

 

You really need to stop with the cut and paste for the sake of it. All you are doing is regurgitating what has gone before and making it more complicated. There is already a usable link via Lazada.

There's a 'hidden' prepaid sim from True that you can't get a true shop, it's only bundled with a phone/device when True wants to shift old stocks of phones, but mobile shops will separate them and sell just the sim card for about 1,200 baht that lets you have unlimited volume at capped speed of 4Mb/s for 12 months, all legit and registered into your name/ID and everything.

 

and that's all you pay, no topping up, (though you can top up credits if you make voice calls on them) no contract, after it stops working, get a new one

 

ask for 'Sim Thep' at the mobile phone stalls, or available online from Lazada where you can bring the package to activate at 7-11 or proper True shop

Why do you think? Obviously people using them for home connections and caning the data.

 

So now they've adjusted the prices and cut the amount of data. Just use your old SIM and you can continue with unlimited.

Already linked to earlier, but useful to have a name for them if shopping locally. Though I imagine local prices might be somewhat inflated.

Thanks Everyone!

 

I got a myCAT SIM card and got a 3 months 6Mbps unlimited internet for 1070Baht including tax. Its working fine so far

 

Thanks for the feedback. Indeed MyCAT is the solution for those who don't have SIMs registered before the 1st of Feb(Probably 1st of March in the case of DTAC).

 

DTAC has 10 Mbps 90 day packages.
