Best Option For Internet Without Phone Line


TripleB

Recommended Posts

After spending ages going through numerous threads, I'm still as puzzled as ever. here's my problem. we can't get a phone line where we've moved to. I didn't think for a minute, that getting a phone line would become such a major issue as Thailand is developed enough a country...or so I thought! Anyway, cut the long story short, now we can't get internet access the traditional way, so it looks like we have to head towards mobile internet option. Anyone can recommend the best solution/provider in Sattahip area? Or maybe there is another way out? i heard mobile internet is still relatively slow.

Any tips?

Many thanks in advance! :o

AIS/ one2call do a gprs package. You need a compatible phone.

20 hours for 107 baht on a (easily canceled) monthly subscription.

Shi_te connections though - at best 230Kb/s

Still I do my emails and web crawling when wired to the laptop.

Hi there

Try Hutch 2MB via GPRS/Aircard (Stick) You can actually try it out at their shop next to TUKOM and get all the different packages explained.

Wee Jimmy was right! I spotted the telephone engineer on the ladder doing something on our road yesterday. went up to him, he first said ''no phonelines''. After 5 mins however, he suddenly could find me not one but three lines... for a cost of 3000 baht and i can have it installed in a couple of days. it seems to be a common practice over here so just had to swallow it :o

So, there we are, money certainly talks!
