3G spectrum cap of 2×15MHz confirmed

16 Aug 2012

Thailand’s National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) yesterday finalised a previously announced resolution to limit the individual spectrum cap in the upcoming 3G licensing auction to 2×15MHz (down from an earlier mooted level of 2×20MHz). The decision means that three equal 2100MHz band licences are likely to be awarded to the incumbent mobile operators, Advanced Info Service (AIS), Digital Total Access Communication (DTAC) and True Move. The reserve price for a 2×5MHz bidding block in the auction scheduled for October remains unchanged at THB4.5 billion (USD143 million).
