In this thread, I just want to express how much I need to say thank you to the telecommunications price war in Thailand.

I just can't believe how privileged we are to live in a country where mobile services are so cheap. It is terribly hard to believe that an hour-long call could be as cheap as 7 baht (or even less for someone).

Right now, I am in Australia and I feel bad for myself and Australians who have to pay for such a ripped-off price for shitty services. (Seriously, I have only 2 bars of reception in Melbourne CBD! And at $49 a month?)

What do you think? Are you satisfied with the services available here from telcos like AIS, DTAC, and True at the price they are charging?

Without 3G, I am still happy!

I think Thai mobile operators need to balance their voice and data rates, it's currently too different.

For me Thai cell phone services is very good. For other people I thought that they would say that AIS and DTAC is the best, because it's very popular here. For me, AIS is better than other cell phone services, because I used AIS, but I still thought that all of them are cheap. This is my opinion on the cell phone services in Thailand.

Same here in US, I'm paying $69 for my iPhone plan, unlimited txt, 450 mins, 2gb 3g data plan. Phone call from AT&T number to the same service provider, all calls after 9pm, all calls during weekend is free. I'm gonna stuck with this for two years. that's a lot of money per month. Their service is fine considered I'm a part of their very big corporate account. Still, I feel that it's expensive.

U could be happier in India 0.01 THB per text(sms) with 0.25 THB per min. Honestly if u think post-paid is high, why dont u try pre-paid?
