Internet connectivity and options

Post by cjsiam » 24 Sep 2017 23:31

So, going to be enjoying the region in November.
How is wi-fi in the area? or internet hot-spots/cafes?

Two actual questions---short term visit, which spots will provide some bandwidth--which hotels/bungalows seem to have it figured out?

Long term stay--how are the long-timers connecting? can you get cable link to house? only certain areas?
Pointers to providers appreciated.

Welcome to the forum (and BS).

While you'll find that internet speeds here are nowhere near as fast as Bangkok you can get free wifi in most bungalows, cafes and restaurants.

At home we have TOT Fibre which is patchy at best and runs at about 4-6Mb usually. The only other provider available locally is 3BB.

Power and internet outages are frequent unfortunatley - welcome to the jungle!
