Korat has ADSL now! Both TOT and TT&T are offering it. Of course, you have to live within 5 kilometers or so of the phone switching office for now. And your office has to have the equipment installed. But they are building out from Nakhon Ratchasima city to reach a larger area. Give it time. Woohoo! True broadband, sort of, at 1000bt a month for 512K.

I pay $40 for 3 meg in the US.

Is there a download limit on that ADSL service?

I don't have enough Thai, and the TOT employees do not have enough English, for me to be able to ascertain any upload or download limits. Anybody with fluent Thai care to drop by a TOT office and find out the details for us?

:o Call me "thick" I guess, but I see the last two references to "satellite" but I can't figure out where I can get more information concerning this service.  "Sounds" really great.  Where do I buy?  Kolat area?

we have satallite ip-star at the farang connection in Surin. Costs a bit but well worth it. Check us out www.farangconnection.awebspace.com

Ok, what's a "Michelin" map?

Anyway Kolat sometimes spelled Korat is also known as Nakhornratchasima. Located about 260 KM Northeast of Bangkok.

Now you Know?.?

a bloody good map of Thailand made by a tiny rubbery company based in Frogland. :D

Many Farangs here look like the Michelin man :o

btw, ask your Thai wife/girlfriend how to say "Elvis Presley"

Have a good one!

Hi lampard10, your cafe looks great, will have to call in when around your area.

can you give me more info on the satelitte conection, price (unit and monthly) and where can buy etc. I'm currently on dail up jixtreme shark byte 15 days (bearable during the day and after midnight) on TOT line but thinking of going on GPRS DTAC for 999bt a month unlimited until I read this thread about satelitte.

Anyone getting a landline is better to get the TT@T rather than TOT so I am told, it took TOT one month for them to fix my bad connection because as it was working, albeit terribly they insisted it was ok, after 3 weeks of fustration and being told everyday "yes we fixed it yesterday" I steamed down to the office and blew my top, a week later it was sorted.

I have been using dialup (1222) internet in Korat for 12 months and was generally quite impressed with the dialup service and value. I have just switched to ADSL (256/128) at 500 Baht per month with a unlimited download through TOT. I am located in the absolute centre of Korat. The installation was promtpt however I am quite convinced that the connection is actually worse than the 1222 dialup or at the best about the same. The file download speeds seem to be slightly better however the net surfing speed seems to be very slow and unreliable. I am actually convinced that it is the international backbone that is the propblem as addresses within Thailand seem to be quite quick.I would therefor not recommend any change to ADSL in the Korat area.

Reviving this thread....

I'll be moving to Korat city in April and wonder if some residents could comment on the current state of DSL service in Korat.

Who do you use? How is the service? What would you recommend?

TIA :o

I'm going to be living near Maha Chai Chana, 20kms away from Yasothon. My wife says they do not have a phone line yet but they can have one put in for roughly 2000bt. Does that sound right - does anyone know exactly?

She says that it will only take a couple of days for them to come round and do it, but I know what thailand's like and it will probably take 2 weeks!!

This extreme card looks good - I'm only going to be there 5 months so I'll try and give that a go. I live just opporsite Plantip Plaza so they should have it there.

Thanks guys for your help. Any more info always welcome...

It costs 800bt in Maha Chana Chai and will be installed in 1 week. I would suggest to use Loxinfo for the Internet connection. Thats the only one working there. Have fun.

It costs 800bt to install a phone line in Maha Chana Chai and will be installed in about 1 week if you do not show your face. If you show your face it wiil be little more than 2000bt and take 2 month. Buy Loxinfo standard internet connection (not 1222 etc) This is the only one working there. No fancy modems etc. No support available. Have fun :o

roiet if you look at the top of each posting (next to the smiley on this one) you'll see a date when the posting was made. Right now you just answered a question asked last July by someone who hasn't logged in since.

No problem, its good of you to want to help. I just want you to understand the ins and outs of posting so you don't waste any time. :o

Thanks
