I am going crazy (good possibility) or does my TOT Internet slow down after I've received my bill and speed up again once I've paid it?
I don't use TOT, but what I like about my ISP is that often when I'm on the internet they send me this message which I think means something like:
'Dear Valued Customer, how are you doing, matey? Pretty pleased you always pay your bills on time. Enjoy yourself, okay? Any problems then give us a call on this number etc. etc..'
Here's the original in Thai:
“ขออภัยในความไม่สะดวก กระทรวงเทคโนโลยีสารสนเทศและการสื่อสาร ได้มีคำสั่งให้ระงับการเผยแพร่เว็บไซด์ที่ท่านต้องกา รเข้าชม เนื่องจากมีรูปภาพ ข้อความ และ เนื้อหาบางส่วนที่ไม่เหมาะสม สอบถามรายละเอียดเพิ่มเติมได้ที่ กระทรวงเทคโนโลยีสารสนเทศและการสื่อสาร โทร 0 2141 6950”...
Pretty cool, eh?
"Take this, brother; may it serve you well."

...True is installing fiber optic cable now for TV...the instant it's in, we're ditching TOT for True internet...TOT is truly awful...
...majestically enthroned amid the vulgar herd...
I had True in Bangkok and TOT in Phuket. True was better by miles.
True is the best company for all Internet connections: home, mobile, everything. They're the fastest and the most reliable. But still crappy compared to the West though.
I use TOT when I'm in the village where my mom's family is, its very unstable. Constantly fluctuates, heck its not even that fast. I have heard good things about True and 3BB though.
I'm using TOT at my condo. It's complete crap. Disconnects randomly. Speed fluctuates randomly. Doesn't even connect to my iPhone or iPad unless I do some technical editing most technical experts don't even know about (took me half a year to find the answer to my issue on Internet forums). And the wifi here just doesn't connect to my Windows Phone full stop. Unfortunately, I can't change as my complex signed an agreement with TOT so the residents here can only get TOT.
950 a month for 8Mb. I don't know what that means, but my porno streams well good.
The True high speed connection at 16Mbps is excellent. Their lower speeds are acceptable if you have time to waste waiting around.
I use 3MB/S with TOT and it's fine for me... when it's working properly. I'd only use more if I'm planning on seeding using Bittorrent or downloading a lot. For example, movies, YouTube, porn, Bittorrent etc. (does NOT include music).
