AIS rules out 3G venture with TOT

15 Aug 2005

Thai cellco Advanced Info Services (AIS) has abandoned plans to form a 3G wireless joint venture with state-owned incumbent TOT Corp following underwhelming take-up of the pair’s wireline broadband partnership. In March the two companies teamed up to offer the data service ‘Buddy Broadband’, but problems with infrastructure and strong competition have hampered take-up, leading AIS to look elsewhere for a 3G partner.
