So you're real limitation comes back to the speed of your broadband which is always going to be faster than mobile.
There's lots of bottlenecks, all the way from the wi-fi access point right through to the international bandwidth Thailand doesn't pay enough to have enough of ..... and several bottlenecks in-between.

Thai politicians live for headlines like this, so they can pretend Thailand is Singapore. Much as I love Thailand, it isn't. That's what TIT is. The "reality gap" between announcements and what actually happens.

They just had a two-day complete power outage on Ko Samui. That's a huge tourist resort without any power for 2 days.

Talking about cellular, whilst other countries have 4G, Thailand is finally going to have competitive 3G services this year, yes, 2013, as auctions have just been completed and winners announced. That's 3G, not 4G. TIT.

What an amazing country this would be if it wasn't for the politicians, but you can say that for many places sadly ....
