Airtel rises up to 4G challenge

Thai 4G Auction To Be Held By August

Comments Off on Thai 4G Auction To Be Held By August 9

Thailand’s government has announced that the long-awaited “4G” auction will be held by August.

Deputy Prime Minister Pridiyathorn Devakul announced that the government has consulted with the regulator, the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission, and said that the regulator is ready to conduct the auction.

Pridiyathorn promised that the government will not micro-manage the auction and will allow the regulator to do its job. However, he said that he expects the regulator to expand the spectrum available to match other countries and that the NBTC will have to report back to the Digital Economy board every month.

“I want them to look not just at 900 and 1800, but to use 2300, 2400 [sic] and 2600 for 4G too,” he said, obviously unaware that 2400 was used for WiFi.
