NBTC intervenes to ease data logjam

Respite for True Move and Digital Phone Co

- +

The telecom regulator will ease the rules for True Move and Digital Phone Co (DPC) and let them offload their existing mobile data traffic to the 1800-megahertz spectrum for one year to alleviate congestion. 

Mobile operators, especially leader Advanced Info Service (AIS), are faced with the possibility of massive traffic jams as the rise of affordable smartphones and tablets fuels a surge in mobile data consumption.

"Operators can also temporarily use the 1800-MHz spectrum to provide 3G and 4G wireless broadband service until July next year to ease data traffic congestion and relieve poor signal quality," said Takorn Tantasit, secretary-general of the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC).
