Good morning all.
I have the use of a house (on the darkside), which I can use for my twice yearly visits.
I "hope" to retire in 2 to 3 years. I was going to wait, until retirement time. before I got internet into the house.
Ive been thinking recently though, that I may get it next trip (September/October time this year), rather that wait a couple of years.
My reason being, I dont go out every night drinking now (getting older etc!).If I stay at home, I usually watch a D.V.D. in the house (I have the "original"! 20 inch T.V I bought 15 odd years ago!). Im now thinking, its best to just get a new T.V. and to get internet....that way, I can just bring lots of stuff to watch on T.V. (or probably get some sort of media box etc to use in Pattaya)..............Thereby when I dont go out drinking.......I will have internet, and can watch tv etc.......
Which brings me to my question! I "assume".........I will have to pay for every month for the internet? (I mean...I couldnt get say 3 months worth in January......then another 3 months worth in say September!?)........Im assuming its just paid every month?
I also "assume"! its about 700-1000 baht per month? Which is the best/easiest etc! provider to use? Is it like in falang land....where it could take a few weeks to get it all set up.......or far easier as some other things appear to be in Thailand?
I asked a Norwegian guy who lives opposite me (in Pattaya that is!) how much he pays etc for his internet............he didnt know...as his wife paid it, and he "thinks" he pays for internet and a tv cable package each month?
Any info gratefully received....
I appreciate. that at the moment im in Thiailand twice a year.....for a total of maybe 8 weeks...............but as I say...I cant go out drinking every night now! So internet would be worthwhile for me, as it can get a touch boring keep watching D.V.D.s most nights!
