Thailand ICT Minister to address 4G network development with NBTC

It was recently announced that the Thailand Information and Communication Technology Minister Uttama Savanayana will bring up the case of fourth generation network development to the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) telecom committee and NBTC Secretary-General.

There are more than 103 million mobile subscribers in Thailand. The existing 2300-megahertz spectrum in place can no longer satisfy the demand for greater modernization in Thailand. The government is proposing that the 4G network be built by TOT Plc, Thai state-owned telecom company.

Aside from the bidding wars, this move to 4G development is thought to boost Thailand’s role as a regional hub for digital infrastructure.

NBTC has estimated that the government could receive over $2.06 billion USD from the upcoming auction. Thailand’s economy could use the support of a high-speed telecom system.
