Thailand may launch 4G spectrum tender by August

Thursday 12 March 2015 | 12:30 CET | News
Thailand is likely to launch a 4G spectrum tender by August, The Nation reports, citing Thai ICT minister Pornchai Rujiprapa. The planned ad-hoc digital economy committee chaired by Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha is expected to hold its first meeting at mid-March to prepare the national digital economy policy, Rujiprapa said. "As far as I know, the NBTC can take six months to launch the auction, since it has already prepared the auction plan. I'm certain that the auction will take place by August," he said.
