DTAC secures spectrum in 900MHz band

29 Oct 2018

DTAC TriNet, a subsidiary of Thai operator Total Access Communication (DTAC), has won 2×5MHz in the 900MHz band for THB38.06 billion (USD1.14 billion) in an auction held by the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) on 28 October. The Bangkok Post writes that TriNet was the sole bidder in the auction. DTAC will be allowed to operate in the 850MHz band for another 24 months during the switching from the 850MHz to 900MHz band due to hardware upgrades across the nation, according to NBTC’s director-general Takorn Tantasith.
