I use such a True sim card, currently being sold for 1790 THB.

So i pay 1790 THB for one year unlimited 4mbps.

Not as cheap as JackDD's option, but I use a Dtack 4Mbps unlimited data package, which is to be renewed each month and costs 500 THB/month + VAT (so approx 540 THB per month). 

Note: In the settings of my smartphone I set it as portable WiFi-Hotspot, which allows me to have internet access on my laptop via my phone.  Also my girlfriend and friends visiting me don't need to buy a SIM-card and internet package, as they can simply connect to my smartphone and thus also have free internet.

I got this one and it works well, but nobody at 2 AIS shops were able to tell me how long I will be able to use it ?! An idiot said 1 month only hahaha

I guess it's 6 months or 1 year ?

 

 

 

Six months as far as I know.

They also have a 3 month 4 Mbps package for 1284 baht *104*594# then to press the Dial key to apply the package.

 

If you can get 10 Mbps at your location, the also have a 3 month package for that. *104*598# 1926 baht

 

1 Mbps for 3 months, 802.50 baht *104*591

 

This only for DTAC SIM activated before the 1st of March.

I bought 2 of these from Lazada end of last year ( registered 1st jan 2019 ) for 1245 baht each.
Excellent value IMO and I will gladly pay 1790 if they are still available at the end of the year.

It s crazy priced in thailand for mobile internet data, and all have GB limits! I used ais Mao Mao 1 gbps unlimited for 6 months, but now can t renove it at the same, now, same price but 7,5 gb/month. That I use in 3 days!!! 

What do you use? 

 

I pay 1000 THB a month for 14GB of 3G/4G Data and Wifi with AIS.   My package is from 12th to the 12th and I've only used 4GB so far this month, so have 10 GB to use in the next 13 days.  

What the hell are you doing to use 7.5 GB in 3 days??

That is way too much to pay, especially if PrePaid.

 

You have a couple of alternatives. One is to buy a cheaper 'unlimited' package and simply apply add-ons as and when. 

This way you can get a similar amount of data for 550 baht, as opposed to 1000 baht.

The benefit of the system, is that you only pay for what you use. So if you only use, say 8 GB, you'll pay even less.

Even if you can afford it, the cash saved can go to a worthy cause.

The other option is to purchase an unlimited data capped speed plan. Again at a considerably lesser cost.

Always useful to post a link; https://www.lazada.co.th/products/4g-full-speed-30gb-1-i363708371-s710346497.html

 

A good SIM for general browsing. 1 GB per day should cover it.

 

I'm not sure why they are suggesting registering the SIM via their Facebook page; https://www.facebook.com/simlnwsimtwo/

 

Perhaps as an alternative to having to visit a Truemove H service centre.

Just to qualify, it seems the speed on this sim is 4mbps, once allowance is used it drops to 128k.

Still seems a good deal.

If you read the "questions about this product" on Lazada it states speed as 4 mbps.

I cannot put Thai txt here (rules)

Yes, i see what you mean, but everywhere else it says full speed. So i would expect it to be 30GB full speed, but maybe it's only 4mbps.

 

Since last year we are officially allowed to post small snippets of Thai, last year after i made this thread somebody changed the forum rules slightly to allow such cases:

The 30GB relates to data usage NOT speed. 

 

And yes, being a Moderator I am fully aware of the rules and what is or isnt allowed. 🙂
