Talking About Networks And Signal Strength

Recommended Posts

A girl that I tried to contact told me that on that day she was getting no internet signal from her ISP. I met up with her anyway, but she had never seen my text msgs or calls and she still wasn't getting a signal.

 

What is the word for "signal" in that sense?

 

And how do you say "weak signal" and "bars": "Now the signal strength is only two bars on my phone."

 

Also have been looking for "WiFi" in Thai and only the English WIFI comes up. Phonetically it would be something like ไวไฟ in Thai, but I haven't seen that either. Do they say it some other way, or do they just use English?

 

Thanks,

Gaw Guy

Hi,

 

For signal the English word is used, although bastardized to 'sanjaan' (sorry, no idea how to write that properly).

Wifi is just wifi, with perhaps the last syllable pronounced a bit longer.

 

Oh, and weak signal would be 'sanjaan tam'

 

Sanuk!

Ok...I have 'sanyaan' - สัà¸à¸à¸²à¸“. Can you spell 'tam' in Thai please.

 

Thanks, GG
