NBTC adopts draft frequency master plan

24 Nov 2011

Thailand’s National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) has adopted a draft master plan for managing wireless frequency resources for both the telecoms and broadcasting sectors, the Bangkok Post reports, representing one of the pre-requisite steps needed before it can relaunch the country’s stalled 3G mobile licensing process. NBTC commissioner Supinya Klangnarong said that the regulator will release details of the scheme on its website to gauge public opinion and will conduct a public hearing on the plan within the next three to four months. The draft master plan could become effective by April, Ms Supinya said, adding that it will be implemented through a four-year term.
