TOT in 3G talks with DoCoMo and KDDI

24 May 2005

Thai government-owned telco TOT Corp is reported to be in talks with two Japanese operators, NTT DoCoMo and KDDI, over its planned 3G launch. TOT, which is set to be privatised this year, wants to embrace new technologies, and sees a partnership with one of the Japanese cellcos as the quickest way to do so. If a partnership is made, DoCoMo or KDDI is likely to take a stake in TOT’s 58%-owned wireless subsidiary ACT Mobile.
