DTAC’s 3G users reach 71% of total subscriber base

23 Oct 2014

Thailand’s second-largest cellco DTAC, part of the Telenor group, has reported that subscribers on its 2100MHz 3G network increased to 19.7 million, or 71% of its total subscriber base, in Q3 2014, compared to 68% three months earlier. However, the total mobile subscriber base decreased by a net 0.9% quarter-on-quarter to 27.8 million at the end of September 2014, due to market competition, particularly in the pre-paid segment, the company disclosed in its statement. Nonetheless, DTAC highlighted that it maintained its relatively strong performance in the post-paid segment, posting a 2.4% quarter-on-quarter increase in post-paid users, partly offsetting a 1.4% q-o-q pre-paid user decline.
