Have been using DTAC happy tourist, 299 baht. 7 days unlimited data.

Speed wise, their 3g faster than our own 3g

Upon exiting Suvarnabhumi Airport immigration, head towards right. Walk along that stretch and you will see a DTAC booth.

Just tell the staff 299, they will help you to put the new sim card, as well as do the activation on the spot.

You will be able to use the data immediately upon activation. I haven't called locally or overseas yet.
Once you exceed 1gb, you will feel the slowness for the rest of the 7 days

First purchase the SIM card at 299. There after if u need data after the initial 7days, then u pay another 199 per week or 49 per day.

So the SIM card selling at 299 meaning deducted 199 for a week of unlimited data plus 100 worth of call. The 100 baht if no use, can be used to extend the data for another 2 days, tat jus nice for ppl going for 9 days

Just note that if you are intending to buy the card, buy when you are still at the arrival area, there was once where i left the arrival area and the next thing when i tried to go back and buy, the security tell me that i cannot enter the area anymore and hence i am unable to purchase the SIM card at the tourist price.

You mean cant go back to level 2 to buy sim card from the escalator where there is a security guard standing there ? I encountered at my three trips to bangkok last few months, just tell them you want to purchase sim card or your sim card got problem. Got two times, they told me to write my name etc on a piece of paper, maybe is to keep track who has used that escalator to go back to level 2 .

Initially intended to get True Move (but they have no longer gave out free sim card, as has to pay 49 and need to top up for the data and call), so ended bought AIS THB 299 tourist SIM card instead of DTAC 299 tourist sim card as dtac queue was very long last Saturday.
