WiFi at Areca?

How is the wifi these days at Areca?  It's generally kind of sucked in the past. Just wondering as I will be there on the 25th on and off for a couple of weeks 

 

Thanks....

 

How is it out by the Evergreen pool as well as in the different towers?

Yeah,might have to rely more on my mobile phone data plan...sucks they can't get this fixed. What the hell!!!  In fact, any good places close to Areca that has decent wifi within short walking distance?

Yeah it was crap for me also but I got some sort of data from 7/11 and it's the only one they had . plus I had an old mobile. Planning on getting a good deal at one of the booths at the airport on arrival even if it takes 20 mins of my time up . since I upgraded my mobile in the UK my last mobile (4g) will be better. Trouble is I'm to keen to find my taxi and get to Pattaya asap and bypass these booths. Not this time.... He says (:

I have an international data plan that works almost anywhere in the world but it's very slow.  What's a good deal for a data plan in Thailand and where in the airport will it be found?  If I have a taxi already scheduled do I meet them first and then hit the data provider, and if so where?

I am getting an ATT passport plan for my iPhone. I know there's cheaper ways to do this, but I hate the hassle. Are there other places around Areca that has decent wifi? I suppose coffee world in the little plaza out the back door of evergreen wing.

It was pretty fucked up when I stayed there last year.

Living sober,clean and staying away from loose women doesn't make a man live any longer. It just fucking feels like it.

I stayed there a year ago and it was bad.

 

I mentioned this to the reception many times, they turned the modem on & off etc...

 

In my review of the hotel, online & in the hotel I did mention that the wi fi was poor and it was the only thing harming an excellent hotel.

 

In typical style Thai management it's still not fixed a year later. How difficult would it be to fix it!? Ridiculous in 2017 but oh so very Thai.

I have stayed at Areca a few times. Allways had problem with wifi being unreiable and slow. Otherwise a good hotel with nice pools. Latest trips i have rented a condo at vt6 and wifi is excellent.

It was pretty good for me was able to stream the nfl games on sling tv using my laptop I was there in November with that said they have cat 5 cables that you can plug in to your laptop to make it faster. If it's for a phone etc without a port then it might be slow.

I stayed in the Evergreen building in November. There was a router in my room, so no problems for me. Maybe the solution is to request a router at reception.

i was barely able to watch twitch on low settings, so that was really a bummer for me. of course you don't spend that much time in your hotel room whoring around in patts, but still it would be nice to have a decent connection. of course there is no incentive to improve anything, they are booked out pretty  much all year due to location and quality of accomodation.

    • 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.
