. Please read them if you are thinking of coming to KoHub.
The space is located a short walk from Long Beach here
We’re open 24 hours a day 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year! The reception is open 8am to 6pm, so on your first visit please come between these hours so we can get you all setup and introduce the system for nighttime access.
We are close to the mainland so the internet on Koh Lanta is very fast. We have four fibre optic connections from different providers. These are setup to fail-over to make sure we always have internet. Our main inernet bandwidth is 1Gbps down and 500 Mbps up. No matter how many members we have onsite, our speed tests see us constantly going over 100-200 Mbps down and 100-200 Mbps up. Here is a link to a speed test
. We have a UPS (uninterruptible power supply) unit on all our professional networking equipment. This means that our internet doesn’t go down if the mains power fails and then we run our generator. The internet is uninterrupted and with the generator, we can charge laptops as well.
More info is available here
Power is pretty stable on Koh Lanta, and we only experience power cuts about once every month or so, and only for a couple of hours. We have a back up generator, so if mains power goes down our UPS provides power for the network until we turn on our generator. There will be several minutes when there is no power for the rest of the building as we go about the business of turning the generator on. Once the generator’s on, we can power fans, lights, computers, but the AC will be off until the mains power is back on. 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.
Just a short 5 minute walk from KoHub!
We rent 22-24 Inch full HD (HDMI) monitors for 100/400/1200 baht (day/week/month). Please ask at reception.
