Sim Card with Best Data Plan for 20 days

Hey Guys

 

I know it’s probably asked several times about a good Mobile Network Sim Card for Tourists.

 

I’m only asking again because prices and plans change frequently so what are the current best sim cards with data plans only for 20 days. What are the best Networks who provides 4G Network in Pattaya.

 

Is it better to buy in the airport of those tourist sim cards or wait and buy in Pattaya.

 

Please advise

 

 

Regards

I usually buy a tourist SIM from DTAC or AIS

They are 4G however the data itself is (usually) unlimited but the speed is throttled after you've used your quota. Then it throttles back to a lower speed which is still acceptable.
Free wi-fi is typically everywhere. At least wherever I ate there was free wifi for customers.   
You could buy a SIM only plan and then pop into a local Pattaya 7-11 or a AIS or DTAC branch (Central Plaza) and get a top up just for data or whatever.
If data is all you want you can ask for that at the airport. I did that during one visit and it was roughly the same price.
If making phone calls is not overly important then look at a data plan only. 
From memory I am fairly sure they threw in at least 100 baht worth of call time. That was gone real quick after a couple of local calls to my dentist to schedule appointments.

There was a really great thread on this. It covered many options and work arounds to get a SIM only and re-load it cheaper and easier than the tourist packages. 
Maybe someone will link it. I hope this gets you started on your research. Enjoy your trip.

This is so true. 

While I was staying in Pattaya I used http://dtac.co.th/en/prepaid/products/tourist-sim.html

I haven't had any problems with this SIM and Free WI-FI is everywhere.

    • 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.
