There are a number of options when it comes to the internet in Thailand. Hosting in Thailand is costly so most companies tend to host outside of the country. You can search for a hosting company online as the cost of international bandwidth in Thailand is very costly. Even the large Thai forums such as Thai visa tend to host in Singapore as the bandwidth cost is lower.
Internet in Thailand
About 10 years ago in Thailand you could buy a normal internet card at the local cafe for access to the internet but this has all changed to contract accounts now. True is the biggest player in the field and has the largest subscriber base in Thailand. You can get a good internet connection in the price range of 800฿ per month.
This is good enough for web development of watching Youtube. It has improved over the last 3 years as the 800฿ per month package used to give you slow Youtube videos where it spent more time caching that streaming. Today this has changed and the mid-range internet package is very good. True also operates its own international gateway in Thailand like many others.
