AIS, DTAC, True Move ready to bid for 3G service license


BANGKOK, 10 August 2012  – Three major mobile service providers, AIS, DTAC, and True Move have said they are ready to bid for a 3G service license. 

All the three providers attended a seminar on the future of Thai 3G (Third Generation) service. They said that the 3G service will allow Thai businesses and people easier and faster access to information, which will create more business opportunities.

They also agreed that whoever gets to provide the service should not charge inordinately for it, as it will become burdens to consumers in the future.

Meanwhile, a representative from the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) has disclosed that the Terms of Reference (TOR) for the 3G bidding will be forwarded to the NBTC meeting for approval on August 22nd. The bidding process is expected to begin in October.
