The Bangkok Post reports that Thailand’s largest provincial telco TT&T has won a third arbitration victory in a dispute over revenue-sharing with state-run rival TOT, in which the Administrative Court ordered TOT to pay the privately-run operator THB2.3 billion (USD68 million) for unfair revenue collection relating to long-distance call services. However, TOT president Varut Suvakorn said TOT would appeal, which means the dispute – which already stretches back seven years – is likely to drag on further. The report continues that TT&T won two earlier arbitration cases, of a total of four filed. The first and largest so far involved THB23 billion in compensation, after TOT allowed mobile operators to connect to TT&T’s provincial network whilst collecting THB200 per month per phone number from each mobile operator.
