Internet Speed

We work tirelessly with all our local internet providers to provide you with the best possible internet on Koh Lanta, which we feel is the best in Thailand, let alone on our small island! Providing top metro speeds on a tropical island.

We have three fibre optic connections from different providers to try to guarantee our internet never goes down.

Our total bandwidth is well over 1,000Mb/s download and 500 Mb/s upload. Our speed tests on WiFi see us constantly going over a solid and stable 200 Mp/s down and 200 Mb/s up with low ping times of around 18ms. Here is a link to a speed test: https://www.speedtest.net/result/7588181224

Because we know many of you techies have special requirements, we work very closely to ensure that all your software can communicate. We also have a static IP address for those that need it, for instance to keep server connection tests alive. In general, we like to help fix any problems – we are open to do everything we can to make sure your internet is rock solid.

 

Real world test results using KoHub WiFi

We want to be sure you are confident in our real world speeds and reliability, below we tested some common countries to show the performance spanning across the world. The reason we do this is because speeds will reduce in real cases when the connection passes through other networks after leaving Thailand.

These examples show a connections bandwidth, this is not a shared bandwidth, this is a per connection test. So in theory everyone will get the same speed for this location.

For example for Hulu & Skype HD Video calls the required per connection bandwidth is 2.0 Mbps (upload & download) for HD [reference]. As you can see all tested destinations had more than sufficient bandwidth and ping times to perform flawless HD Video Hulu & Skype calls. Trust us, when there is a problem, it is normally on the other end!


Note: Speeds will vary dramatically, this is the nature of the internet, but we are confident we will give you the best connection possible in Thailand and especially in the South of Thailand and Koh Lanta!

Power

We have industrial UPS (uninterrupted power supply) unit on all our networking equipment which gives our network a 3-4 hour backup. This means that our internet doesn’t go down if the mains power fails. For longer power cuts we employ generators.

We have two back up generators, so if mains power goes down, we can turn on our generators. There might be few minutes when there is no power as switch over, 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. The Network will never go down as it is constantly protected by two UPS units.

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.


Open 24 hours a day 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year
