TOT delays 3G deal to 2014

Monday 2 December 2013 | 22:10 CET | News
Thai state-owned communications provider TOT's second phase of 3G network expansion will be put off again until 2014, as it could not decide on its partnership models by last week, reports The Bangkok Post. President Yongyuth Wattanasin said TOT needs to amend its partnership contract with Samart I-Mobile (SIM), the 3G arm of Samart, to obtain a win-win solution. TOT has 5,320 3G base stations. It plans an additional 13,000 to 15,000 stations under a second-phase 3G expansion through a partnership deal with a private telecom operator.
