3BB did it again! You get more speed for the price you pay.

They also have 790 baht 1000/100 fiber with My Swop (Speed swap) feature which requires 24 month contract and is direct rival of True gigetex fiber.

 

590 baht = 200/200

700 baht = 400/400

900 baht = 500/500

1200 baht = 700/700

790 baht = 1000/100

Yes it is a great deal however remember your television will max out at 100 MBPS so any faster does not do you any good.  Also, unless your computer is capable of those speeds and is hardwired again the additional speed does you no good.  If your router or computer is incapable of those speeds then they will not do you any good.

Unless you are streaming multiple devices and using a VPN.

I have the 700 baht a month plan, but no increase yet, still just over 200mb.

They came round this morning to upgrade me from 100/50 to 200/200. When they left the phone app said I was on 300/300, apparently the extra 100 is free for a month. However a speed check shows I am still on 100/50.

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 used 3BB for 6 years. Any issue was attended promptly with no charge to me, including move and they replaced Wi/fi router. Just wish I could find a Monthly package giving me the same service I now have with AIS = 400 baht, 3BB = 631.30 baht and TV = 400 baht (so 1430.30 month). Or am I about as good as it gets here in a Chiang Mai?

I don't know which speed check you used, but if you are using Chrome and www.speedtest.net you might find odd readings above 100. I have been using the speedtest.net App available on the Chrome web store (free) and my AIS 300/100 package is showing that +10%.

A while back, we had a problem with squirrels chewing through the cable. They were always out within hours. Since the neighbor trimmed back her jungle, the squirrels have dissipated. 

About a month ago, service went down. This time it turned out to be the old connector going into the router. Tey were out and done, once again, within hours.

Our speed boost came with a new router - no charge.

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

Less of course but still way more than I have seen in the past.

(just selected location, no other parameters changed)

Download only.

It appears my ignorance was the problem. I am doing the speed test on my phone via wifi and it appears my phone maxes out at arround 100/100. Just did speed test on the computer using wifi and speed is 225/160. I am assured that if I attach the router by cable I will get 300/300.

For the ones who know how to run traceroute:

if you look at the routing of traffic from a 3BB connection to the Internet outside, it is very chaotic. They seem to have a lack of available IP addresses, and route you through a complex chaos of 3BB routers with private IP addresses, before you get to a router with a shared public IP address. 

Here a shortened example:
 

Tracing route to xxxxxx [xxxxxx]

  1     2 ms     1 ms     2 ms  192.168.1.1
  2    10 ms    10 ms    10 ms  10.121.60.237
  3     9 ms     9 ms    11 ms  10.121.60.230
  4    14 ms    12 ms    13 ms  mx-ll-110.164.0-108.static.3bb.co.th [110.164.0.108]
  5    20 ms    17 ms    16 ms  mx-ll-110.164.14-220.static.3bb.co.th [110.164.14.220]
  6    14 ms    12 ms    15 ms  mx-ll-110.164.14-246.static.3bb.co.th [110.164.14.246]
  7    13 ms    13 ms    13 ms  mx-ll-110.164.1-19.static.3bb.co.th [110.164.1.19]
  8    13 ms    17 ms    13 ms  mx-ll-110.164.1-21.static.3bb.co.th [110.164.1.21]
  9    36 ms    36 ms    36 ms  mx-ll-110.164.0-243.static.3bb.co.th [110.164.0.243]
 10    37 ms    37 ms    36 ms  mx-ll-110.164.0-189.static.3bb.co.th [110.164.0.189]
 ....

Even after 10 hops you're still in the 3BB maze, and the latency is getting quite high.

Sometimes it has drop outs, unfortunately.

Speedtests, Fakebook and Youtube are not a good way to check. Access to Fakebook and Youtube is always optimized, with local caches in place.

Speedtests too, they are made working first, and often only show what is possible if traffic is optimized and prioritized.

Earlier this year with 3BB I changed from an up to 30Mbps pack to a up to 100 Mbps pack at around THB 600/month.

I also paid their subcontractor 4,000THB to install fibre optic all the way to their new modem.

Absolutely no improvement, I get 9 Mbps on a good day to the USA or London (testmy.net)

Their technician come last week and told me that I get 5G on my phone but my laptop doesn't do 5G on WiFi so if I get it modified I will get faster downloads. (My TV does get the 5G WiFi OK)

If I get a new laptop what speed should I then get? 18Mbps?

No need to buy a new laptop. Wouldn't something like this be a better first option? https://www.lazada.co.th/products/600mbps-dual-band-5ghz-wireless-usb-lan-pc-wifi-w-80211ac-i384850567-s747578197.html?ef_id=CjwKCAiA8ejuBRAaEiwAn-iJ3lnCfqK3sY1FHIkXGqqzAt8sOoBj4jJBiXIpseBldhQ7UrfY8Q93AhoCBzcQAvD_BwE:G:s&s_kwcid=AL!3152!3!286179630377!!!u!296030489971!&exlaz=d_1:mm_150050845_51350205_2010350205::12:1498579383!58089999096!!!pla-296030489971!c!296030489971!747578197!143715528!286179630377&gclid=CjwKCAiA8ejuBRAaEiwAn-iJ3lnCfqK3sY1FHIkXGqqzAt8sOoBj4jJBiXIpseBldhQ7UrfY8Q93AhoCBzcQAvD_BwE

Try via ipv6.
