Recommended Posts

Hi,


I arrive in DMK and just need a 7 day sim with internet and texting, plan to use it in Pattaya and Bangkok only.

Which would you recommend that I can obtain from DMK airport?

 

Thanks

Hi,

I doubt my year old Thai sim will still work and when I have previously been there I recall they only sell 299 tourist sims for 7 days unlimited internet.

The link you sent shows that cheaper options are available, wonder if they will allow me to take a 100 to 119 baht package for 1-3 GB internet anyone know?

You just need a basic 49 baht SIM. Any network.

 

Don't use the private booths as they  will just overcharge you.

 

Go to the official Truemove, AIS or DTAC outlets;

Pick up their basic 49/50 baht SIM and some top-up credit.

 

The amount of credit you need to purchase from them at that time depends on what package you intend to apply;

Truemove H;

Unlimited 1 Mbps for seven days; *900*1973#send  Costs 107 baht

Unlimited 4 Mbps for seven days; *900*1975#send  Costs 160.50 baht

Unlimited 6 Mbps for seven days; *900*1745#send  Costs 214 baht

 

AIS;

Unlimited 1 Mbps for seven days; *777*7098#send Costs 106 baht

Unlimited 4 Mbps for seven days; *777*7154#send Costs 160.50 baht

Unlimited 6 Mbps for seven days;  *777*7210#send Costs 203 baht

 

DTAC are currently offering double speeds.

Thanks for that info I had a look at DTAC

 

So the options would be

Happy Tourist 299

  • Free 8-day unlimited Internet (Maximum speed of up to 2.5 GB)
  • Free 100-baht call credit
  • Special international call rate via 00400

 

or 

if staff at DMK DTAC allow - purchase a sim for 49 baht and the package below

Super 4G SIM

1.99 baht / MB

All networks 1.5 satang / second

49 baht / SIM

Special Promotion

Free YouTube all night x 12 months (midnight-8 a.m.)

Enjoy free music with no data charges

 

+

Unlimited internet at 1Mbps 7 Days

Unlimited at 1 Mbps max speed

Automatically renew 52 weeks long

Enjoy music streaming with no data charges

100 baht / 7 days

Press *104*378*9# dial

Special Promotion

Special! Double speed to 2 Mbps until 23 Dec 2017

 

I don't think I need any faster speeds but I could pay an extra 50 baht and get up to 8 Mbps 

Alternative for 8Mbps speeds:

 

Unlimited internet at 4Mbps 7 Days

Unlimited at 4 Mbps max speed

Automatically renew 52 weeks long

Enjoy music streaming with no data charges

150 baht / 7 days

Press *104*388*9# dial

Special Promotion

Special! Double speed to 8 Mbps until 23 Dec 2017

 

So I think I'd prefer to go via the sim and unlimited internet add in route should they allow that, will give that a whirl at DMK when I arrive in a few weeks otherwise I will just pay a little extra and get the tourist sim

It has nothing to do with whether they allow it. It is totally your choice. They might simply suggest that they are out of stock of the 49 baht SIM.

 

The 299 baht SIM is not the worst choice for a week if you likely won't exceed 2.5GB, but you need to check if you can use the credit to extend the life of the SIM until you next return.

DTAC's outlet is on the Arrival floor, between Terminal 1 and 2.

When I said allow it - they may say we only stock tourist sims.

Thanks for the tips
