8 Jan 2018

Advanced Info Services (AIS) has entered into an eight-year roaming agreement deal with Thai state-run operator TOT, Reuters writes. AIS will pay up to THB14 billion (USD437 million) a year to utilise 80% of TOT’s 2100MHz spectrum for a total bandwidth of 15MHz. In exchange, AIS will lease its 25,000 mobile towers to TOT for THB10 billion a year. TOT president Monchai Noosong said that the deal will help TOT expand its mobile communication network and provide commercial 4G service using TOT’s 2100MHz spectrum. Under the deal, Monchai said that his firm will be able to increase the number of subscribers to around two million within three years. The executive added: ‘The eight-year agreement will also improve the speed of non-voice communication services and improve the quality of services to customers. TOT will also provide mobile phone services for around one million low-income users.’
