NBTC re-evaluates auction with ITU

2 Apr 2015

The Thai telecoms regulator NBTC has once more enlisted the help of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) to re-evaluate the starting bid prices for the 1800MHz and 900MHz spectrum on offer in the newly rescheduled November/December 2015 technology-neutral licence auctions. The original minimum bids for the delayed auctions were set at 70% of full spectrum value by the ITU last year, with bids for a 12.5MHz block of 1800MHz bandwidth beginning at THB11.6 billion (USD356 million), with a THB11.26 billion floor price attached to 10MHz of 900MHz spectrum.
