We are close to the mainland so the internet on Koh Lanta is very fast. We have three optic fibre connections from different providers. These are networked with fail-over to make sure we always have internet. Our combined bandwidth is 1,100 Mbps down and 450 Mbps up. Our speed tests see us constantly going over 200 Mbps down and 200 Mbps up on a modern WiFi connection. Here is a link to a recent speed test.
We have Industrial UPS (uninterruptible power supply) units on all our networking equipment. This means that our internet doesn’t go down if the mains power fails and then we run our generator, so the internet is uninterrupted.
We have two back up generators, so if mains power goes down, we can turn on our generators. There will be several minutes when there is no power as we turn the generator on, so make sure you’ve always got some charge on your devices. Once the generator’s on, we can power fans, lights, computers, but the AC will be off until the mains power is back on.
All the building electrics are earthed, and we provide power boards with surge protection.
Whilst we have done all we can to keep power on, keep internet connections solid, and protect from electricity surges, we can’t take any responsibility for any damage to equipment or loss of data due to internet or power disruption.
We’re open 24 hours a day 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year!
