I am 14 km south of CR and I have had Maxnet 512/256 for a couple of months. I started with 256/128 but I was not happy with speed and connections so I upgraded to 512/256.

I still had a lot of problems, did not work for days and stopped to work suddenly. :o

I got the guys out two times, no problem, they came within a day. They found nothing first time but the second group said I had wrong router. I was too far away with that model. So I went to Big C to TT&T and got another router for free. :D

After that I have almost no problem.

When I download music by torrent I sometimes got stuck. I close the download, unplug the router for 20 seconds and then, Bang, everything is working fine again.

I use Skype and talk to family in Europe with video and it works really good.

So in the end, I am now happy with Maxnet but it took some time to "tune" it in. :D:D:D

Have to agree with you.

There are quite some 'farang' in Chiang Rai who believe in miracles.

Since a couple of hours I am one of them.

I got myself a new computer, my dear Mr. Magic came to install it and ten minutes later I had a perfect ADSL connection.

Tomorrow I will phone to TT and T and express my gratitude for the fact that they have been working at it for almost a week (and tell them that they can relax now).

Limbo (happy) :o

Skype is great. Free when you talk to someone on Internet. But you can also call someone in England with telephone or mobile and only pay cost for local call!

The market constantly changes. What was bad 6 month ago might be good today and what was good 6 month ago might be bad today.

What one needs, an other might not need. It all depends on what you will be using your connection to. Most connections (even dial up) can do simple surfing such as thaivisa.com, emails, internet newspapers etc. For downloading music, skype and internet calls you will probably need adsl or if you like the fast speed. Which kind package is not so important. If you deal with bussiness, watch your home tv, listen to the radio or as some people mentioned internet gaming and you want quality you are probably better off with an expensive bussiness solution costing thousands of baht per month. Also be ware transfers inside Thailand are much faster than international transfers.

The basic quistions are. What do you need your connection for? How many hours a day/week wil you be using your connection? What is your budget?

I got TOT bussiness package costing 2700 baht a month. It is the best I have had and I am still not satisfied. It has happened the connection went down friday after their office closed and there is nothing you can do untill monday morning when their office opens. Before that I had TOT 1,000 baht a month and it did not have same power. The key is they put a lot of people on the same connection and you then share the connection with others.

High Speed internet is being build and should reach out further and further. As we know, in Thailand things sometimes get delayed....

After reading your post about Skype, I went out today and bought a cheap headset and micophone set (110 baht) and downloaded Skype .

No problem. I got $10 dollar credit with the credit card and within 5 minutes I was connected.

Had a bit of problem with the hand set, where do you plug it in?.........this one you have to disconnect the speakers and plug it in there.

I think I'll have to get a better set.

Anyway, I started phoning numbers in Thailand.........no reply.........no dial even to my own mobile.

I think the Thai network is bogged down.

Then I phoned a few friends in Ireland and England.............got through no problem and great reception.The calls, acording to Skype work out about less than 2 cents but I don't understand why I was charged $2 something for 11 minutes of calls.

Anyway my question is, is Skype known for overcharging or did I miss something?

Been using Skype for 1 year and never heard of them overcharging. Calls to mobile #s or special numbers (certain strange UK "toll-free" #s) can be quite a bit more than the 2 cent rate). You need to go to their rate page and look for the rate to the exchange you called. You can also go to your account page and look at your call list and you will see exactly what they billed you for each call.

Have fun. I really enjoy Skype and use it all the time. You can also call toll-free #s in USA and normal toll-free #s in UK for free which is very handy when contacting airlines, for example.

it seems nigel's question about fastest most powerful internet question is being now lumped in to an internet thread more concerned with skype. let alone, being lumped in with an old thread it is more likely to be ignored.

i'm curious too.

if i have a budget of 1000- 3000 baht per month what is the fastest and most powerful then?

thanks readers.

I have Maxnet and it has a lot of problem where I am for the moment. The last 4 days it has been down 90% of the time. But hopefully it will go back to be up 95%.

So for the moment I can't recommend it!

i know very little about computers, but i have the tt+t max pack for just over 600baht amonth and so far very pleased with the service.

last year i had a guy from norway half thai (nice guy )who rented a house from me he paid about 2.400 baht a month for a tt+t package he was selling stuff on the internet and had 3 or 4 computers going at the same time, i would say he was a computer wizz kid, no complaints from him about the service
