TOT posted on its Facebook page today, “As the floods severed a bridge in Prachuap Khiri Khan province, our fibre-optic cable is damaged. We are fixing it immediately and will be back to normal within two hours.

“We are apologise for an inconvenience.”

However, The Phuket News noted intermittent internet access cut-outs throughout today, starting at 7:30am and culminating in the full TOT outage this afternoon.

This is nothing compared to about a month ago when I had no internet for over a week of the billing period. The month before that it was about 3 days. Poor - time for a new service provider?

I had no TOT internet connection from 23:00 hrs at 9 January till  12:00 Noon on 10th.
Than again no TOT internet connection from some evening time on 10 th till early this morning.
Went to TOT office on 10th, could not even pay my bill as they were not online themselves.

Seems amazing that TOT appears to have all internet running out of BKK when there is a perfectly good cable system that leaves thailand at Songkla. If TOT ran an internet connection via Songkla then this outage wouldn't have occurred.
