Thailand, Laos agree on mobile signals along border

Monday 21 January 2013 | 02:39 CET | News
Negotiations between Thailand and Laos on mobile signals along the border have recently concluded. The two countries agreed that mobile operator signals will not reach further than one kilometre inside populated border areas and no more than two kilometres in other areas, the Bangkok Post reports citing the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC). With the move, the countries hope to prevent that users in one country are automatically switched to an operator in the other country with a stronger signal and being charged roaming fees. Thailand has a similar agreement with Malaysia to limit the signal coverage along their border.
