Internet Provider.

Post by Old Grumpy » May 1, 2018, 2:48 pm

Hi everybody this seems like a helpful forum so perhaps some -one would be good enough to give me a few pointers .
I will be having to get an internet provider and was wondering who you think might be the best. Talking to a couple of guys last night and got the impression that TOT wasn't very good but 3BB was .I will be having a desk top and a couple of mobiles running and looking for 100/50 or maybe a bit more and paying up to 1,000bht a month .Any suggestions please .

We've got TOT as it's the only fibre that comes out into the villages. The only time it goes out is when there is a power cut and it's quite possible that if I had a UPS on the router it would still be OK.

It really does depend on where you are ...... I'm 5 km North of Udon and 3BB is by far the "least bad" of all my options but as STWW says in some places TOT is better, so if you have connected people locally, its best to consult them and find out what their experiences are.

We are 50 km east of Udon and 3BB were the only provider when we signed up 2 years ago. We run a laptop, 2 phones and a KODI box all with no problems all with the 699 Baht package.

it depends where your location is.
3BB is available all around the city but in remote areas maybe not.
3BB is reliable and the people at the help desk are fluent in english conversation.
i have 3bb for almost 10 years now.
satisfied.

I have TOT fiber and it is excellent. My computer and router run off my solar system so power cuts do not affect me.

Where you are located is clearly very important and so my answer may not be of any help depending on where the OP is. In downtown Udon I have found AIS, as recommended by another good downtown friend, to have performed beyond expectations over the last year and a half. They offer a 10% discount if by chance you are also a customer by another service and this year they also offered a reduction in the monthly price when we went in to our second year. We currently pay 470.80 baht (including the 10% discount)per month and rarely ever is the speed less than 30 mpbs.

I'm in Loei province. Before TOT ran a cable through I had horrible service from True with a 4G aircard.
