Hi Guys

 

I am looking on line for a condo in pattaya but it is very important to me that i have high speed internet

is there questions i s should be asking the condo management before i move in like which isp are available in there building

 

i don't mind if i go through my mobile phone or through a phone line also i don't mind paying extra for a fast and reliable line

 

it needs to be fast enough so i can stream video and use skype

 

thanks for any help

Some condos already use a certain ISP so yes check with them first but you can probably have another if you pay to get the cable run into your condo. I did that to change from TOT to 3BB. In reality though you have only got a choice of those two. True don't supply to condos above (i think) 5 floors.  I only pay 590 baht for a 10mb 3bb line (although in practice it's much less than that). That is fast enough to stream video, skype, watch the BBC etc. 3BB are reliable as well, i only get it down for a few days a year.

I was in TOT at Pattaya Klang and 3rd Road to sign up for new internet service. They have dsl and fiber optic available. According to Google the fiber optic should not go down when it rains - a very common occurrence with internet in Pattaya. The catch is that not all neighborhoods and buildings are equipped for fiber optic. The lady at TOT showed me a master map and my building is older and is not wired for fiber optic. You might want to check with TOT before you sign on the dotted line for a long-term lease at a condo building. 

The wife and I were very happy for 20 years, then we met.

Sadly the internet in LOS is not up to most western countries standards and therefore you will struggle somewhat to get a reliable and speedy connection :SoWhat1:

If it is really important, then ask and verify with other residents and possibly use two ISPs.

 

Three years ago in my condo complex i brought my 3Bb dsl account with me from my apartment and had them install the equipment and wiring with permission from the condo mgt. Before, the only option in this condo was to rent a WiFi connection through the condo office. We now have others with 3BB accounts, but due to apparent technical limitations, no new ones are being accepted by 3BB, but some existing account holders are sharing their WiFi passwords for a monthly price.

 

Two years ago, Sophon offered coaxial cable Internet service in my area. I was again the first in our condo so I paid for the coax cable from Sohpons nearest hub. For me and my location, this service is much faster than the dsl service, however the 3bb dsl seems to be more reliable and always ON, so I keep and use both.

 

Every location will be different depending on the ISP so find where you want to live and then check and verify the ISPs available along with their service quality as global answers will not apply. Even in the States I do not have all options of ISPs available for the location of my house - one cable and one dsl ISP service to choose with varying levels of service quality depending on the exact neighborhood. It's no different here, but in the States I can get by with one ISP as its both fast and reliable.

I recently booked a room at View Talay 6 through Honey's that had its own non-shared connection that was giving me 11M down and 1M up.

I suffer from PTSD, Post Thailand Stress Disorder =P

3bb gives me 15 down and 1 up for 963 per month. It is usually very reliable. About once every year if I am gone something happens and it takes 3 days to get it back. I believe other techs. come in and find the unused line and use it for another customer. The in-house engineer checks it and gets 3bb to rectify it or he changes the connection. Fantastic when it is not disturbed. From listening to friends that know I think 3bb is the best now but it certainly varies with location.

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
