This thread has information about GPRS data service provided by AIS and DTAC.  GPRS is part of the GSM wireless phone specification (GSM 2.5 I think).  The specification is for 115Kbs but most operators limit bandwidth to 53.6kbs because its pretty resource (network) hungry.  It requires a gprs capable gsm phone.  Many of the phones I have seen are either 40Kbs or 50Kbs capable.

Addendum:

The WiFi service in Don Mueang appears to be operational now, although I haven't tried it. The operator is Far East Internet The fee is payable in advance by purchasing a card in 60, 120 and 180 minute credits valid for three months or by paying online with a CC.  I'll fill in the detail later as I have just got in off a long flight.

For Thailand, if you do not have free access in your hotel/apartment (it still seems rare) and you are at all price conscious, note that the going local rate is 15-20 baht per hour dialup and 30-45 baht per hour ADSL.  Ask a local student the best place to go for these prices in whatever area you happen to be.

There were three wireless networks last time I was at the airport in Bangkok (01/03/04).  You can buy prepaid cupons for the WLan Net throughout the departure lounge or use IPass if you subscribe to an ISP that uses ISP for roaming.  

If anyone has details about the other two networks that would be helpfull

Good news for Thailand is that AIS 1-2-Call now comes with GPRS. This is quite handy. Right at this moment I surf the Internet at a reasonable speed in the deepest of the Isaan plains, which is something that was impossible just a few months ago!

LHL,

1-2-Call is the pre-paid cash plan.

Cheers,
