3BB new plans and free speed upgrade!

Recommended Posts

My Asus AC86U (AC2900) is unable to keep up with 700Mbps on 5ghz AC (1300 Mbit two-way connection, 600-650 max. theoritical rate). Still, I can't complain and I'll enjoy 700/700 since it's a free upgrade.

 

It's time to upgrade my NAS since it can't cope with such high speeds.

Yes i just noticed my 100/100 is now 200/200. Good news for 590 baht. I also see you can "swop" speeds to get 300/100 instead of 200/200. Much better as i never do any uploads.

Anyone get the Giga package yet for 790. On promotion this month. What is needed if you already have fibre installed, a new router? But if you have the 400/400 you can swop to get 700/100 which is nearly as good.

Good find, just used my 3bb phone app to 'swop' from 200/200 to 300/100.

Great stuff! Last time they revised the packages, I went from 200/200 to 500/500 free (1284 baht) which was a bit overkill for me so I downgraded back to 200/200 and saved 500 baht + vat a month. With this new upgrade, I went to 400/400 which I have "swopped" to 500/300, so I'm just about back to where I was after the the previous free upgrade, but saving 500 baht + vat a month.

Been on the 1290 Baht 200/200MB for 2 years incl. Fixed line telephone. 

Only ever got 100MB max on LAN and 38MB on Wifi. Over the years they must have been here at least a dozen times for fixes etc etc.

Now they upgraded me to 500/500 but still not getting anything more than before.

I was seriously thinking of downgrading my package to save some money and told them so I would. They said CAN NOT. You have fixed line telephone in your package. I can't be without the Telephone line as Its used for the business.

Just get a better router and you'll get 500/500 on wifi. 

I have Asus AC86U connected to fiberhome router from 3BB using Bridge mode (tricky to setup) and I get 1300 Mbps via 5ghz near router (600-650 mbits max due to wifi limitations) easily.

Signed for 100/100 (590+tax) in July.

Six months on 50% price (changing from ToT).

Recently used the Swop feature to change to 150/50.

Then saw 200/200 and currently have 300/300.

Nice for 315 Baht incl. tax.

 

Nice (to have): can't really exploit it except when downloading youtube videos (with WinX). I prefer watching them with VLC. If boring with 3x to 8x speed :biggrin:

I am curious what the figures would show if you used https://testmy.net/ - and changed to a server in Europe/US?

Yes cannot complain about 3bb this is the 2nd free speed upgrade I have received in the last 6 months on the 590 bht package,plus when I had a problem with external line theybwas straight out the next day and repaired it👍👍👍👍

I have been waiting since July 7th for 3BB to get their ass in gear and run the fibre link 800 metres to my house.

 

Last month they closed their office in Khampaeng Phet and moved it somewhere else that I haven't found yet.

People need to watch the hardware that IP's provide for their "super fast" internet access. You can have gigabit service but be on 2.4GHz "A" wifi and only getting 50+ MBps speeds unless hardwired. 

3BB installed a 2.4/5GHz router with gigabit port.

Not great but most service use CDN all around the world and client connect to the closest one. My connection max out for Singapore or Tokyo but is not great to Dallas.

I have 200/200 with 3BB, but my laptop can only handle 100. Anything above that is wasted on me. But even 100 is plenty for emails and video downloading and IPTV.
