1 Yr. Internet SIM NO MORE ?????

Recommended Posts

I still have a few months on my 1 yr. 6 mb AIS package Unlimited Data. Cost me 3500.-- for 12 months.

Was just told by 1175 this package is now cancelled, there is only 1 option 4 mb  WITH a 1 yr. 20 Gig limit.   

Does anybody know of any alternative for unlimited 1 yr. internet Sim?  Thank you so much.   MS>

CAT still do one for 2500B+VAT. I switched my number to them to get it. The process was fairly painless.

You can also find True ones on Lazada for under 2000B but the trouble with those is that it involves a second SIM and a second number.

As KK notes, I just purchased 3 sims with pre-paid 4 MBPS for 1 year on Lazada for B1790 each, which works out to B150 per month. They arrived quickly and I went to True with my phone and my daughters' phones and got the SIMS registered and installed. I already had 2 sims, one for phone calls and 1 for data, so I just changed the CAT data sim with the new True sim. The woman at True confirmed the 1 year contract term and the 4 MBPS speed of the service. My daughters both have iPhones, so they now have new numbers as their old numbers with CAT could not be transferred to the new True sims. Everything else works perfectly, including Line and all of the apps on their phones. They are both very pleased with the quality of the service, but as they get older I expect that keeping their present number will become more/very important. A very good deal, I think, if you can accept a change in phone number on the new sim.

Yup, a good deal indeed, I have the same ( 4 mbps True unlimited valid for 1 year).
Bought mine from Lazada also and registered 1st Jan.
I bought 2 , one for me and gf , paid 2,490 baht ( 1,245 each ). Looks like they have increased in price, but still a good deal.

Different package, for SIM registered after the 1st of Feb; 

 

909.50 baht per month for 25 GB of data capped at 6 Mbps *777*7364#

 

For SIMs registered before that date, it's *777*7211#. Though the same price, no data cap.

 

So just use the old 12 month code if unsure.

I was previously using a True 4mps package in a wifi dongle but that SIM is due to expire in a week or two. I did have the option of getting another True SIM from Lazada but I found using the dongle to be fairly inconvenient so I decided to switch my number from True to CAT to get the 2500B 4mbs package that CAT still offer, and to have it on my main Thai SIM.

 

As I already have two SIMs in my phone (one Thai and one UK), I really wanted to get the package onto my Thai SIM directly and so porting the number to CAT was the only way. Obviously losing my old number was not an option.

 

Interestingly as part of the porting process I had several good offers from the customer retention department of True to get me to stay, but I declined them as having started something I like to finish it.

 

One notable disadvantage with CAT is that they have very few shops - which also have very limited hours - and there is hardly any English on their website. I am hoping that now that everything is working I will not need to contact them at all for any reason for the next year. I never had to contact True in the last 5 years so that should not be too hard. Apart from that CAT seem fine so far.

Thank you all. 1175 clearly states no more unlimited 12 months deals. Now only 25 Gig for the full year. Ridiculous. When I try to sign up, this limit is shown. Will try again now.  THX> all.
