Hi-Speed internet in Pattaya

My latest speedtest ... i love fast internet.

 

2770611280.png

 

I have recently upgraded the internet connection in Nirvana Boutique Suite the hotel I am managing in Jomtien.

 

After trying different companies we have finally found a great option that is super stable and reliable.

 

CAT ( Communications Authouritiy of Thailand ) are now providing Fibre Optic connections.

 

Starting from 4200 baht/month you can get a 30 megabit download and 5 megabit upload connection that seems to deliver the promised speeds.

 

They also have faster plans available all the way up to 100mbps.

 

The connection is also good for international sites not just inside Thailand like some other companies.

 

A ping of 245 ms to the USA is a lot better than i had before.

It's only available to individuals at that price, no businesses.

Smack dab in the middle of Pattaya. I signed up for it on the net, and they called me a few (can't remember how long) months later and in a bit it was all done and dusted. I can download a movie in the time it takes to go take a pee now. ;)

The only problem with this is that it is a con, you are not testing ping to the US you are only going to Bangkok and they are using a cache. It isnt possible to ping 16 000 miles in 14ms unless 3bb have found a way to get around the speed of light.

Erm, sorry, but look again. That test is to *San Francisco*, which is not located in Thailand last I checked. 14ms is bogus, I agree, but don't know why it comes up.

 

Speed tests are all well and good, but I consistently get good speeds on my actual downloads *from US and other servers outside Thailand*--a gigabyte takes less than 5 minutes. Here's a download I just did:

3.7MB/s = 29.6 Mb/s
 
That's the important thing.

I currently have the 12mb/1mb from 3bb which is like 960b. to LA speedtest is 12-15mbps and .8 up but most importantly the Ping is sub 30ms (sometimes sub 20). I might look into the 3bb fiber.It's the upload that I want. Download isn't that much more valuable over 8 (solid) mbps. At least for me.

I have the same thoughts.

 

I've gone from a 6 to a 10 to a 25 and now back to a 20mbps connection.

 

Surfing the web is no different between all of them. Torrents do come down quicker but the nice thing on the higher plans is the upload speed. Makes a big difference when your uploading pics etc.

I use TrueOnline with a cable modem. Packages are listed here. Speed tests look silly but vary from 30mbps-50mbps and I pay for the 20/2 package for 1200 baht (almost 1400 after taxes). The cheaper 15/1.5 899 baht package wasn't available when I signed up so that's a good thing showing they are trying to improve and expand service. At certain times during the day/night the net gets slower, and during holidays or elections the net is slower. Also some sites in the USA load slow while others are fast, so the speed test doesn't really seem to matter anymore. 

 

When I had the xDSL I had problems every month. When I upgraded to the cable modem I haven't had any issues. When the internet goes down it's the entire area and not just mine. Once I did get disconnected because I didn't pay my bill because I don't always get the bill. Now I just log in online and check the 1st of each month and pay online.

Here's the funny Speedtest.net results when hitting the USA with the funny ping.

I am surprised at how quick these speeds are. There are parts of regional Australia where I have lived where you can't even get landline broadband access!

Most ISPs in Thailand use transparent proxies for content filtering, intelligence purposes, and bandwidth management.

 

In this instance, your getting a cached copy of the speed test data, cached in Bangkok, that is why the Round Trip Time is only 14ms, which tells you that your download and upload speeds are not accurate. To work around this, for a accurate measurement, you need to keep trying different testing servers until your RTT is > 150ms, use a non-http speed test, or use a VPN then any of your normal speed tests.

 

I have both True Cable 30/3 and 3BB fiber 30/5; Roughly the same physical connection quality with True being 20ms slower. But, and this is a massive BUT, True's Transparent proxy server is horrible, resulting in a bad experience if not using a VPN.  It returns incorrect error codes when it doesn't have data cached, so youtube breaks, as well as other online video streaming services.

 

If you want to try a non-http speedtest use: http://myspeed.visualware.com

 

at 11:45AM Saturday on 3BB Fiber 30mbps/5mbps to Los Angeles: 993kbps/1.5mbps

 

At night, this becomes much faster:

Its nearly [95% of the time] adequate for VoIP and VideoChat

Your download example shows NZB, so I assume you were downloading from a newsgroup, using a multi-connection download agent with 10-20 connections to America? Those are fantastic at maximizing bandwidth, and defeating traffic shapers, I can get 10-20mbps from True Cable and 10-30mbps from 3BB Fiber doing the same. But this is a edge case, most internet applications will never be able to leverage these speeds [Video Chat, gaming, most uploads]. I'm being pedantic, I know, but its worth while underscore that nothing performs as well on the open internet as multi-socket usenet downloaders that have been co-evolved with traffic shapers.
