Anyone....

I don't really understand speeds, in my apartment when I download stuff, the top speed is 799kb/sec.......what does that work out to in Mbps. (I don't pay for the internet so have no idea what the package is)

 

One does not normally see download speeds expressed in kb/s(or even Kb/s), but KB/s.

799 Kbps equates to 99.9 KB/s

 

For the benefit of a comparison; 1 Mbps equates to 125 KB/s

 

It seems more likely that your download speed is at least 799 KB/s. Which equates to 6.39 Mbps.

 

Rest a test and let us know the result; https://testmy.net

1mbps is comparable to data speeds in Kazakhstan 16 years ago. It is shamefully slow. AIS is famous for it's throttling of speeds. I find True to be far better. Much faster and less limitations. Of course, if you are seeking out the lowest cost plan possible, AIS might be the answer. 
I have the AIS 12 months unlimited 1mbps 1800 baht plan. I use about 30gb a month. It's fine for internet searching, downloading, youtube, porn. It's not as good as my previous 4mbps but only a marginal difference.

Thai girls are on facebook all day, i get them on this plan and they are happy with it

You have missed the point on this one.

We are discussing capped speed, unlimited 'no slow low down' data packages. 

They are available in 1 Mbps, 2 Mbps, 4 Mbps and 10 Mbps flavours.

 

So a 1 Mbps package will be much the same with all of the networks. People choose 1 Mbps because they can purchase a 12 month package for 1800 baht with AIS. In fact the same package costs 1926 baht with DTAC and Truemove H.

 

AIS carries 1 Mbps 90/180/365 days, 4 Mbps 90 days and 10 Mbps 90 days

DTAC: 1 Mbps 90 days, 4 Mbps 90 days and 10 Mbps 90 days

Truemove H: 1 Mbps 90/180/365 days, 2 Mbps 90/180/365 days days and 4 Mbps 90/180/365 days

 

So, as you will note, Truemove H is not faster in this respect. In fact it's the slowest of all, since it doesn't offer a non stop 10 Mbps pack at all.

 

These packages are only available to DTAC SIMs activated before the 1st of March or AIS/Truemove H SIMs activated before the 1st of Feb.

For once Jam Jar ,I Have the same info that you have ie/ short term top-up packages. I have the OnTopPackage app on my phone. I get confused when I see

all these deals on Thai Visa that seem so much better than the OnTopPackage and

I actually go on AIS site looking for them so I don't have to keep coming to all these

rate threads and asking questions all the time.

 I am looking for more than 30days...so post 34 is my answer....thank-you. Can I ask

where you find all these rates (link) because I'm sure there always changing.

 Any reason why we don't have a sticky with the rates?

Cheers

 

Whilst you have a SIM eligible for capped speed non stop, unlimited data packages, if you choose the option for a capped speed, limited data package, then that it what you will get. 

I show that link only for long term capped speed, limited data packages.

If someone wants to compile something for "pinning" on the current rates etc just let me or another Mod  know.

Question, what exactly means "activated before"?

When I go to the shop?

 

What happens then with the unlimited packages sold in lazada? Because I also have to go to a shop and "activate" those SIMs

You go to the shop to 'Register' the SIM with your passport info etc. Activation takes place when you put in your phone and get a signal.

I will no longer be posting on nor updating these threads in the future. 

 

Too many poor decisions and ungrateful people.
