    Jakey, is that a mobile SIM service or are you linking to a WiFi service? It looks like you are using a fibre or high-bandwidth pipe service rather than a cellular service.

    Sony Tobias I didn't make it clear. Yes you are correct it is a fibre cable they ran through the village, the speed I pay for is 50mbs but in the last few weeks it has gone up to mid 70's and is unlimited download.
    749bht a month.
    On my phone I usually get 7mbs on DTac 3g and occasionally I can get 4g.

    No, I had TOT wi-net to start with then 3bb ran the cable through the village. They wanted at least 5 people to sign up but only 2 of us did.

    Just a very quick 2 min look on Google found me this

    6GB for £13
    10GB for £23

    Clearly better deals available than what you have chosen
    Those do look good but what about signal coverage, I've gone through four different SIMs now and found O2 the best for signal - Three and EE were unusable. These also look like contract deals as they're monthly payments, we'd already established that contracts were better value but I don't want anything on contract/direct debit as I maybe returning to Thailand in a few months.

    Yes they are PAYG 30 day rolling contracts.
    You just pay each month, until you don't want to. I'm sure you know within a month if you will be leaving so just stop it when you want to.
