Possible with WIFI on a computer without smartphone and commitment to a yearly contract?


Recommended Posts

I want to stay two months in another province and when the condo have WIFI its very unstable and its as usual unsecured. Do anyone know if its any way to get WIFI on my computer. I'm not a smartphone user so that's not interesting and I like to have a keyboard and sizeable screen in front of me when online and most important secure connection. If anyone know a way I'm grateful for information.

Thanks

Felt.

There are 4G "MiFi" boxes and 4G routers that use standard SIM cards and share internet by Wifi to several devices around them. You can then either top up as you need or get one of these 10 mbps 1 year prepaid cards that have unlimited internet on them but speed capped. As long as you have good signal you should be no worse off than condo Wifi.

Router:

Obviously not cost effective to buy an annual SIM for a two month stint; unless it will be utilised after the trip.

If not, unlimited 4 Mbps is 200 baht per month; unlimited 10 Mbps 300 baht.

 

Of course you will need a router/MiFi/Smartphone..

There is no benefit in buying them together other than them arriving at the same time. DTAC is cheaper, 1290 baht. Truemove H 1890 baht, AIS, 2240 baht.

Good luck; for some reason you are on my ignore list. So will leave it at that.

Agree on this but be a bit careful with DTAC. Apart from having slowest internet speeds it also has the lousiest coverage. Maybe get a prepaid 7 days SIM first before paying up for a year.

Thanks, will try a prepaid 30 days if available.

Short update. Got me a router called Tp-link and bought a sim from AIS (one month subscription) and is positively surprised by both ease of use, connection and speed.

Thanks

Obviously not the one in tomazbodner's post; that one has no modem.
