Hey guys I'm wondering what kinds of internet speeds you've encountered in Pattaya and in Thailand in general. If i were to rent an apartment what would my wifi most likely be? What are speeds like in internet cafes and at hotels? Thanks!

differs from place to place but its slow slow or slow and im from the UK where 8 meg is fast LOL , i think for the most part your looking at 3meg or less speeds , 8meg is only just getting here going on the bit of tv i seen whilst here

some of the internet cafes are pretty fast, feels like 4 to 6 Mb, fine for browsing and skype. wifi isnt so fast in general but ok for browsing, suffers from periodic dropouts , the dns servers seem to dropout a lot.

O you who turn the wheel and look to windward, Consider Phlebas, who was once handsome and tall as you.

You cannot just by your speed to Bangkok. On the cheaper plans the speed in Thailand will be ok but the international bandwidth will be limited. I have TT&T Premier and here is my speed test for Bangkok and then to London. When I had the cheaper Indy package my speed in Thailand would be good but I could not doing anything on the internet internationally.

Usually my up speed is better. This is at 11:30pm in Thailand so probably still quite a few people on the internet, it gets better at night.

 

Internet cafes usually have really good speed. hotels and condos vary. If I were to rent I would get a place that had something other then TOT and the owner would allow me to pay extra to upgrade to a better package if needed.

I always use opendns in Thailand because of the flaky dns servers. If you click on a link and it won't load, but then you click on it a moment later or refresh and it works then you have probably experienced bad dns server. Here is the website that will give you instructions on how to configure your computer.

ahh cool good advice. I've used some different dns servers in the past just as experimentation but never really understood their purpose... until now.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
