24,700 communities to have high-speed internet by Dec 2017

A total of 24,700 villages will have access to high-speed internet by the end of this year.

Government spokesperson Lt Gen Sunsern Kaewkumnerd has reported that the prime minister is satisfied with the progress of a government project to install high-speed internet throughout the nation. In its initial phase, the spokesperson said the project will be launched in 99 villages across 13 provinces.

He said the internet will be connected with 2,000 digital community centers nationwide, hoping to turn Thailand into a digital society and improving the country’s competitive edge in global arenas.

By December this year, Lt Gen Sunsern said 24,700 communities will have access to high-speed internet.

The high-speed internet service is part of the government’s telecommunications development project initiated under the civil state approach called “Pracharat.” The main objective is to prepare the nation and its people for the “Thailand 4.0” era where digital technologies will play a major role in everyday communications.
