Nokia wins double EDGEd deals in Thailand

19 Dec 2006

Finnish technology provider Nokia has won two contracts for GSM/EDGE mobile network expansion in Thailand worth a total of USD210 million. Thailand’s cellular market leader, Advanced Info Services (AIS) handed the vendor a USD100 million contract for the expansion of its GSM/EDGE network nationwide, whilst DTAC, the country’s second placed cellco, extended the Finnish firm’s sole supplier contract to improve capacity and coverage for both GSM and EDGE platforms, at a cost of around USD110 million. According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms database, DTAC contracted Nokia to begin rolling out its EDGE network in 2003 before launching commercial EDGE services in Bangkok in March 2005. EDGE has been available to AIS subscribers in selected areas since late 2003.
