The Thai Government’s National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) says it wants Thailand to be one of the first Asian countries to make the jump to 5G. Thailand is leading the ASEAN community in 5G technology beginning with Chulalongkorn University and the Eastern Economic Corridor project from next year.
5G will change everything. What 2, 3 and 4G have improved on, 5G will revolutionise and open up even more online possibilities.
5G’s lightning speed will operate in almost real time – that would allow you to download high quality movies in seconds.
But Thailand has some of the highest spectrum prices in the world for a country of its size.
The National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) is planning to award 700-megahertz licences to operators this month with a reserve price of 17.58 billion baht per 10MHz bandwidth.
The National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) will gain Bt56.444 billion from the sale yesterday of three slots of the 700MHz spectrum to three telecom operators, according to The Nation.
The three buyers – subsidiaries of Advanced Info Service (AIS), Total Access Communication (DTAC) and True Corp – picked up each of the 700MHz slots when the watchdog put them on sale yesterday.
Further auctions are planned for 5G spectrum on the 2.6-gigahertz and mmWave in the coming year.
