Is the AIS 1mb Ok for normal browsing stuff

Recommended Posts

I had a True 1 yr 4mps Unlimited SIM, thats now finished so not sure whether to get another or just use my AIS sim and get the 1200 baht Unlimited 1mbps.

Im connected to wifi most of the time so only really need it when im out and bored and look at facebook, receive Facebook messenger messages and look at Instagram

 

Anyone using the 1mpbs, is it ok for this purpose?

In my experience the 1mbps is adequate and from your description of your use it should be for you.

 

The key issue is that the data is unlimited as they say, however after 7.5 Gb of data in one month the speed will drop to 128kbps!

1 Mbps does the job for internet browsing and even for YouTube ..Streaming is hit and miss , sometimes it works other times not.

That's the Thai definition of unlimited. They need to consult a dictionary if they want to use English terms, and understand them.

You make erroneous assumptions. There are two possibilities, dependent on the age of the SIM involved.

SIMs activated before the 1st of Feb are still eligible for truly unlimited 1 Mbps, 4 Mbps and 10 Mbps data.

SIMs activated after that have the limited data component,

Confusing description, as the second option has limited data at 4 Mbps. 

In fact it's just a standard Truemove H SIM, supplied with publicly available codes that you can tap in for yourself.

I find AIS data works very well for VoIP calls internationally.  No drop outs or stuttering.  Much better than WiFi.  At least at my hotel which uses CAT internet.  The WiFi is fast and works well for general internet use but just doesn't work well for international VoIP calls.

AIS is generally better than Dtac.  Better coverage and better 4G data speed.  Especially upload but it depends on location.  I am just saying that has been my experienced on average.

I have the Dtac and AIS tourist (prepay) SIMs.

It's probably a mistake to buy the Tourist SIMs, as some Thai companies like to rip foreigners at every opportunity.

Odd, cos I've been on the unlimited data for 2 years, and when I renewed in August I got a warning message that I was now on the data limited plan.

Do you know these publicly available codes ie the 100 baht 30gb per month one?
