Laptop Wireless GPRS Internet Access Thailand Through AIS Data SIM Card.
We needed to have unrestricted Internet access whilst staying in Thailand between October 2007 and March 2008 so we decided the best option was to go wireless through a Thailand GPRS mobile connection.
We found a company in Bangkok with English speaking staff that sold us a USB wireless internet device and SIM card for our laptop computer.

The Laptop Wireless GPRS EDGE Internet Access Device supplied was the HUAWEI E220 HSDPA USB Modem equipment (hardware) for laptop mobile internet access in Thailand. This was purchased for 7,900Bht. The device is a neat self contained USB connecting unit that can be mounted on the lid of the laptop via Velcrostrips (supplied). The HUAWEI E220 HSDPA USB Modem / GPRS Internet Access Device did not require a disc to load the operating programme. This device was at a lower price than GPRS through a PCMCIA 'Aircard' from Thailand.
The Laptop Wireless GPRS Internet Access SIM Card supplied was an AIS (Thailand) mobile telephony SIM card on GPRS on a 1 - 2 - Call pay as you go basis at a level of time usage. We chose the 250 hours per month for 500Bht tariff which is capable of up or down grades.
We took the laptop we wanted to run the Thailand wireless internet access device on into the Mobile Life Central mobile phone shop / showroom. An English
speaking saleswoman installed the device with a 'company' sim card on the laptop to ensure everything was compatible and working. once she was satisfied she
replaced the 'company' SIM card with our own new SIM card. We were up and running in a matter of an hour or so.
