best internet service

Post by tyznd » June 17, 2017, 2:35 pm

Currently in Chiang Mai I have AIS for my internet service and it has been very reliable. Before I had 3bbb but was paying more for slower speeds. I will likely stay with AIS in Udon unless for some reason people have had problems with it. If that is the case, any recommendations on who I should probably go with? Thanks

I had 3BB before I moved away about 7 years ago, 3BB while we lived in Pattaya and now we're back, we have 3BB again. Not sure how good AIS fiber is in Udon. I was tempted to give it a shot but stuck with what worked before. If 3BB was a blow-out, AIS was the backup. If you like AIS, try it here. If it works good please tell us as much. If it doesn't, tell us as much and try 3BB.

Apart from a couple of weeks ago when a pole burnt down, 3BB has been really good and reliable, here's a Speedtest from this evening.

Where was the speed test done for - inside Thailand or to maybe the US which is where I am interested in? Thanks

The Speedtest is the speed you are uploading and downloading to the internet via your provider it's not affected by where you are connecting to as such. In fact, this pinged Vientiane in Laos. As you can see, it's super fast, it downloads and streams very quickly.

In our small Loei village, TOT ran a fiber optic cable. I told my wife to sign up for the service. I knew nothing about the service so I told her to get the best that they offer. It cost 1,400 baht per month and is advertised at 200/80. Whatever that means. They told her that installation would take 15 days. It has been nearly that long now. After I get hooked up, I'll post how it is working.

I forgot to mention that the installation, cable and router cost 5,000 baht paid in advance.

The speedtest is between you ( the client ) and the web server used by OOKLA etc. In Udon Speedtest will choose the best SERVER ( it tells you so ) to run the test, and it would be Vientiane in most cases. Should you run the test with 3 different servers the results would differ greatly. Run the speedtest with server in BKK, then servers in UK, USA, Japan.. and see for yourself. Keep in mind that OOKLA test results are affected by the Flash component ..


DESCRIPTION FROM THE OOKLA SPEEDTEST WEBSITE..


Latency Test (Optional)
This test is performed by measuring the time it takes to get a response for an HTTP request sent to the web server
It is done 10 times (configurable) with the lowest value determining the final result
The latency test can be disabled by setting the testlength parameter to 0
Download Test
Small binary files are downloaded from the web server to the client to estimate the connection speed
Based on this result, one of several file sizes is selected to use for the real download test
The test is performed with cache prevention via random strings appended to each download
Up to 8 parallel HTTP threads (configurable) can be used for the test
Throughput samples are received at up to 30 times per second
These samples are then aggregated into 20 slices (each being 5% of the samples)
The fastest 10% and slowest 30% of the slices are then discarded (see * below for more detail)
The remaining slices are averaged together to determine the final result

If you don't want to faff around checking individual latency, try this one.
