4G in Thailand to become part of ‘digital economy’. | Samui Times

Prime Minister Gen Prayuth Chan-o-cha has given the green light for Thailand to start the process of upgrading its mobile phone communications network to 4G.

Speaking at the PostToday event in Bangkok, the PM said that Thailand will start to hold an auction for the 4G communications license in 2015.

Gen Prayuth also outlined several targets set out by the government which will help to develop Thailand as a “digital economy”.

This included ensuring that all villages have access to a fibre optic network within the next 12 months, as well as to make fixed line broadband internet accessible to all household in Thailand, within the same period.

Gen Prayuth also said that speculation that the government was about to merge Thailand’s two state telecoms enterprises, CAT Telecom and TOT Plc, into one organisation, was incorrect.
