Wireless fiber is the answer,no cables at all,that maybe light years away.just how much cable is there strung on electric poles and who knows which ones are in use,but for some it's not which connection to choose,as there not all available to everybody. if your lucky enough to be where the connections are.
the more cables added will make a bigger problem when they have one.

so what do you go for fibre optic or the old copper wire connection, what with the high loaded or should i say over loaded itacs, back hoes, tractors, lorrys, then the guy sitting on top nearly touching the mass of cables that's running up and down the soi, they often get damaged. now with the old copper wire connection no problem, can be repaired in minutes, the fibre optic made up of glass particles is not so easy the cost to repair fiber optic cable might be a little bit expensive because of the equipment involved and could result in a longer waiting time to get reconnected :-[  arr a one way connector

If anyone is considering a change \ upgrade it is worth looking at SINET.
We have been with them 4 years now.  We have an agreement where when we go overseas, they Switch Off the Internet, They DO NO charge us, and Switch it back on when we arrive back in Thailand ( be that 1 month or 6 month no problem ) all with NO charges.

I must be one of TOT's very last customers. Since a week my TOT internet was hardly working at all. So I had already changed to a temporary 3G package by AIS over my mobile phone, planning to get connected to the fiber optics cable by 3BB that's running by my house.

Today TOT mechanics showed up to check my connection without being asked, presumably feeling the need to keep me customer. I let them move the cable to a new room I'm using as office now. Later my connection worked fine again, showing around 8 Mbps on the speed tests.

But as soon as I can afford it I will get connected to the fiber optics still

Wow! big storm last night, knocked out 3bb - but when the it passed it reconnected - must have a reset
So since September 2016 2 outages lasting about 20 minutes each time.

In the meanwhile TOT have been out laying new cables every where, but that's no good if they can't keep them connected  8)

My TOT landline and ADSL internet is dead again since last Friday. The modem is logged in, but shows a red light for "no internet connection". Did a dog leak against one of their poles and caused a short?  ::)

Took them 5 days to fix; now it's crawling at the 6Mbps again. The phone line is still dead. But I don't use that anyway.

3BB have upped their 590+ bht download speed by 10 mb to 30 mb for the same price, since TOT are offering 30 mb for 800+ bht so really there is no choice, looks like 3BB has pipped them at the post. But TOT can only offer me 6 mb download speed as i'm too far

An update on TOT or 3BB - tot down again today that's twice this month

Looks like 3bb is well in front of tot as for connection faults. Also what i like about 3bb, if you don't pay your bill on time it will flash up on your screen, "YOU HAVE SEVEN DAYS TO PAY" or you will be disconnected, sorry if you have paid recently if so please put your account no. below. Then press ACCEPT.  The speed has increased by 10 mbps this week, up to 33 down

My TOT adsl keeps working, just more bad than good. Sometimes it cannot be used at all, resets the connection every few seconds. Then I help myself with tethering over the mobile phone, either USB tethering or Wi-Wi hotspot. I get a steady and stable data connection over my 1-2-call, 512kps for 89 Baht for seven days by dialling *777*7009#.

TOT has been down here all day, not just for me but a wide area has no telephone connection, 3BB is still up since it's been connected 3 weeks ago, speed is still almost 23 down. 1 up for3BB so far.

Could be the rain.  My True was down for one day although the, "online" light was still on, on my router.  I called True and they told me several people had this problem.  I no longer have the Red Dish either for my True Visions.  Everything is all hard wired in now.

No penalties for cancelling internet contracts - users must give five days notice

So according to the article in the that people seem to be unaware of, your ISP cannot charge you a penalty if you sign up for 12 months and then cancel it. online lawyer stated you have to give 5 days notice, that's all. you can also make a claim if your connection is down which must be paid to you within 30 days.

If that's the case i must be owed a fortune -  here's the link, in th.

They come today to connect up, no telephone, just turned up, unlike the tot connection which has an outside earth and a box screwed to the wall, they put the cable straight through the centre of the roof and down to which room you want the modem in.
So far so good, touching 23 d/load speed

BB conection

A month gone by and several phone calls to their office, no joy, just the same old. Wait! Wait!. Now we are told the electricity people are having a gripe about where they have put the cables up on the pylons. Having a look you can see the cable's are touching each other.  :(

Last Monday I had written a complaint to ''. Since  I didn't get any answer I reminded them today, asking for a reason to wait for them to take care of their problems. I got  a prompt answer:

Dear Sirs,

I forwarded this mail to the related team for solving your problem.
However, if they open mail lately, your problem still be take a long time. So, another choice, you should call to TOT Contact Center at
1100 for informing. Or you wife can complain such problem through this website in Thai at

Yours sincerely,
Computer System Analyst
Internet Product Development Sector
TOT Public Company Limited

About their Contact Center at 1100 I had written them on Monday already:

The line 0449740** has been down for many months now. Asking the operator on 1100 to send a technician has been steadily ignored by you.


Is there a way to send a technician to have the line 0449740** fixed, and your server adjusted to supplying a usable internet connection? If not, please don't hesitate to tell me, so I can give up hoping and move to another ISP.

I would interpret this answer by Khun S. as the advice, not to waste anymore time on TOT.

I use OpenDNS servers   

 adsl modem


Your local internet service provider probably doesn’t have the fastest DNS servers, and that can slow down your browsing, since your browser needs to look up the IP address of every web site you try to view. Here is how to switch to either OpenDNS or Google DNS for faster browsing times.

The internet has been messed up in my area too. I changed channels on my router, which seemed to help. I use true cable. AIS has been sniffing around my hood now trying to market their internet service, but they all use the same pipeline.

My TOT internet connection is ADSL, where the signal comes over the phone line. The only channels to change there were the Wi-Fi spread in your house. I don't have a problem with that, can connect to the modem by cable with the same results. The problem neither lies in the phone line, but as I understand in the server of the exchange or TOT's main server. They neither keep their hardware up to date, nor are they extending capacities to the increasing demand.

From last Friday after a short but heavy downpour until yesterday TOT line was totally down here, in the neighbour village a car seems to have rammed the pole, and all the cables were hanging down, some torn and disconnected. But since a few months already it can hardly be used anymore, resets very often and doesn't find it's way to a server connection again; the server seems to be far overloaded. And if it got an internet connection again, it is most of the time hardly faster than 50 Kbps. The 6 Mbps sometimes, but very rarely come in from about 3 to 6 am, not a time I hang in front of the PC.

So I got used to keep an "alternate connection" to the web over my 1-2-Call mobile phone set to Personal Hotspot. The code *777*740*316358# gives me a weekly package of 512 Bbps, far better and reliable than TOT with their most of the time not working 6 Mbps.

I keep thinking about 3BB, too, since they advertised on the poles in the village on the main road *(Hwy 205) about 5 km from here a bout two years ago. Though I don't know whether they're up here, yet.

About 3 months ago my friend Detlef in Khok Sung (a little closer to town on Hwy 205), a 100m neighbour to O&D Pub & Restaurant, postet on Korat-Info about his new "Sinet" internet: fibre optics with 50 Mbps down/20 Mbps up, initial cost 1.750 THB incl. 500m cable. After a year they want to reimburse 1.000 THB of that. Monthly cost 699 THB + 7% VAT.

Of course tot was down for everyone, for about 24hrs,right the way from BKK to Korat and on further.
They had a main cable brake, so i heard.

Here's a story ...
About 6 months ago i asked tot for a faster connection than my 6 meg, too far from the exchange box i was told, 2 kilometer the speed drops, if we increase the power the connection will keep cutting off. Put another exchange box in i said, Too expensive, we would need at least 9 or 10 customers to do that.

So we found 9 people who wanted a line put in around where i live, took the list into tot heard nothing since, that's 6 months ago.

So about a month ago we went into bb with the list of the 9 names we had, bb were out in 2 weeks surveyed the area and visited all the names on the list, they've since been back for the installation fee and said some time this month you'll get connected.
yesterday they were out running up the lecci poles putting the cable in.

BB runs on VDSL modem. The price 2,100 bht which includes the installation fee and returnable deposit of 1,500 for the modem. contract 1 yr. 20 down speed 590bht + tax. 50 down 700bht + tax. 100 down 1,200bht. per month.
