Re: Home Broadband Internet Speeds

Capture3.PNG Of all the references on this thread I don’t see anybody disputing there is a difference between MBps and Mbps and perhaps vital to know in some important circumstances.

All the speed checkers I have seen and have used use the lower case Mbps version so I am not clear on what you mean. Could you amplify on your comment?

I was specifically talking about home broadband as in a service arriving by cable/fibre. I would be very interested to know more about how AIS is using its 5G wireless connectivity program to enhance the cable/fibre throughput. Can you explain more?

Home Broadband Internet Speeds

I am sure we have the whole range of computer/internet savvy people amongst us here in Udon and this just might be useful to some of you along that spectrum. I live quite near the centre of town and could probably have chosen from any of the home internet broadband only services offered but on Fuzzy...

Learning the Thai language- internet resources

For anybody who has taken the study of the Thai language into the intermediate or beyond stages it is soon apparent that there is not an abundance of material available that provides both audio and parallel text references. There is no doubt that https://www.aakanee.com is outstanding in this regard...

Re: 5 Year Renewal of Driver's License

Just in case you are about to renew your 5-year license at the Udon-Aek branch of the Land Transport operation I can confirm that the information given by recent posters on the subject remains correct. I merely add some amplification. I have to admit I really doubted the concept that if you waited u...

Same, same at Udon immigration… well almost!

Large shoe sizes at second-hand shoe outlets

I refer here to large as larger than size 10 (US or UK) or in European size larger than 45. A few years ago, I went to Robinson’s in Central Plaza and bought a pair of Nike trainers. At that time, they only had one pair in a large size that fitted me (maybe they have a wider selection nowadays). I p...

Any input from those experienced in studying the Thai language and culture?

I happened to click on the link advertising a new 5 star hotel in the Udon vicinity and I saw a fairly brief passage in English followed by what I thought was a translation of the English into Thai or vice a versa.

Tradition

As today is Constitution Day in Thailand I made the effort to duckduckgo (a serious plug for a break with an early 21st century tradition) and discovered that the Queen of England is older than the current Thai constitution.

Where you are located is clearly very important and so my answer may not be of any help depending on where the OP is.
