3BB FTTx - Fibreoptic broadband
« on: March 12, 2013, 09:15:34 PM »
I've been suffering with 3BB's 899 baht (12/1) package for a while now.  Sometimes it great, but whenever the kids leave school at 3pm and head to the games shops I have had a lot of outage and low speeds.

Having had a natter to 3BB, they sent an engineer out who checked the line and said there was little they could do as I am a long way from the junction box.  He did however put me in touch with a salesperson selling their new FTTx (fibre-optic) package.  14 days later and I am now paying 1200 a month, but getting a really solid 30/3 mb line.  So far there's been no drop in the line and I'm getting good speeds to both Bangkok and London.

If this continues as it is I would certainly recommend it - will let you know how it goes.  The site below is for info and the current 1200 baht offer is (allegedly) limited to inquiries throughout March, but is guaranteed for the length of the contract (1 year).  I am led to believe that it is not available everywhere in Korat yet though - but it is available at my house before the True cable version is so it may be worth checking out if you were waiting for that. Worth noting also that all the engineers have been really helpful, although English is extremely limited.

After 3 days usage, I am still getting excellent, unbroken service at all times of the day.  ;D  Would definitely recommend if you are getting intermittent / weak signal and your area supports it.
