TOT to replace billing system

16 May 2006

Thai telco TOT Corp has decided to cancel its THB1.2 billion (USD52 million) billing system contract with Telemetics because of system malfunctions. The system was put in place in April 2005 but has encountered several problems, most of which involve unmatched call data records. To prevent further damage, the company plans to cancel the five-year contract early; in the meantime, network equipment maker Lucent has been hired to apply its Kenan software to fix some of the billing problems.
