Two consortia qualify for TOT’s 3G expansion

19 Jan 2011

Two consortia have qualified to participate in an auction for the contract to supply and install USD570 million worth of 3G equipment for Thai state-owned TOT’s national mobile network expansion. The two qualifiers are: a consortium comprising Samart Corp, Loxley, Huawei Technologies and Nokia Siemens Networks; and the grouping of United Communication Industry, Advanced Information Technology and Alcatel-Lucent. Dow Jones Newswires reports that two other consortia which submitted applications failed to meet TOT’s technical specifications for the online auction scheduled for 28 January. The telco hopes to sign a contract for the W-CDMA/HSPA expansion around 15-18 February.
