Hutch finally signs interconnection with AIS, DTAC

27 Aug 2010

CDMA-based mobile operator Hutchison CAT Wireless Multimedia (Hutch), which covers Bangkok and central provinces of Thailand, has finally signed long-delayed network interconnection agreements with nationwide GSM operators Advance Info Service (AIS) and Digital Total Access Communication (DTAC). The move complied with regulation issued by the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) imposing an interconnect rate of THB0.50 (USD0.016) per minute on Hutch. However, Hutch is still yet to agree interconnect terms with the country’s third-largest GSM provider True Move, which refused to accept the THB0.50 rate as it said it was too low and did not reflect actual costs.
