Airtel rises up to 4G challenge

Thai 4G Auction Could Be Delayed Again

Comments Off on Thai 4G Auction Could Be Delayed Again 5

Complications surrounding the development of Thailand’s digital economy laws threaten to further delay the nation’s planned 4G auction, according to a working group focused on the initiative.

The planned auction of 42.5-MHz of 900-MHz spectrum currently held by AIS under an expiring concession agreement could be indefinitely delayed, the Bangkok Post reported, citing a member of the digital economy committee.

If the digital economy initiative does not get off the ground, there’s no guarantee that the auction will even be rescheduled, the committee member said.

Thailand’s Council of State is currently amending the internal legislative structures of the digital economy committee’s draft bill.

Among the proposed changes are reducing the number of committee members to 12 from 32, and replacing Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha with a deputy minister as the chair of the committee. Original post at Telecom Asia
