THAILAND PRESS-Thai 2G service period to receive extension - Bangkok Post

Thu Jun 19, 2014 9:17pm EDT

The national telecoms regulator will extend the period for True Move's second-generation (2G) mobile service after the military junta postponed the auctions for 4G spectrum.

Takorn Tantasith, secretary-general of the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC), said the extension would eliminate the risk of mobile service disruption for some 6 million customers using True Move's 2G service on the 1800-megahertz spectrum. An extension period has not been decided, but the dates are expected to be finalised next month.
