Thailand hopes to raise THB 53 bln from 700 MHz spectrum sale

Tuesday 14 May 2019 | 13:32 CET | News
Takorn said the aim is for a permit to go to each of the country's top operators, namely Advanced Info Service (AIS), True and Total Access Communication (Dtac). Thailand's military government said it will delay THB 150 billion worth of payments due from next year for 900 MHz licences if operators take part in the 700 MHz sale. The three operators have filed for payment extensions but are seeking more clarity on the 700 MHz sale.
