I went to Ratchaphruek Hospital today with ear problems.
Was not sure if infection or not.
Very friendly and very professional.
Turned out to be blocked with wax.
Put some drops and waited a while before cleaning.


Was not given expensive drugs like the Ram would have done 
In and out in an hour.


400 Baht fee.
Impressed and will never go to the Ram again.

A shame they are so bloody expensive.

Just to say that the Chinese Prawn Curry was excellent.
Authentic.

This morning we popped into the 3BB counter in Tesco.
Apparently fibre is available in the village.
Nice of them to let us know!
We seemed to have ordered it but trying to get any sense out of my Wife as to any details is hopeless.
Thais are hopeless at asking questions about anything.
I guess I will have to wait and see what transpires.
We did this today. We are now in some sort of Queue and waiting. There appears to be a back-up on getting the equipment available. Like you said "Nice of them to let us know!"


Yes. Sounds like our situation.
Gave phone number and will phone back when they have the required equipment.
All very professional.  roll

Red,


Don't know if you are interested or not, but go to this link and submit the request.  They'll let you know if your location has coverage.  I know I have seen 3BB trucks in many places over the last several months.

About 6 months ago, our neighbor bought into 3BB's 100/30 and paid 2,200 baht for the router.  Maybe that one was a usage deposit too like their VDSLs.


Now installation is free and you buy the router for 800 baht vs your deposit for the VDSL router of 1,500, which you will now get as a refund.


I did that yesterday. Now have to wait to be contacted in some way.
Pretty sure there are no new cables going up though.

Unless they can use the True cables already there.

That's all very well if you have 3BB Fibre in your area.
Will have to stick with VDSL I assume.

No mention of the biggest problem.
NOISE!!
I can put up with most in that article but the constant noise drives me up the wall.
Thais love noise so there really is not a lot I can do.

Noise cancelling headphones.
Soundproofing a room.
