NBTC dangles lower licence fee

1% for firms that use locally built 3G gear

- +

The National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) is floating an idea to halve its 3G licence fee to 1% for mobile operators that use locally made equipment to build 3G and 4G infrastructure. 

Potential local telecommunications equipment includes optical fibre, routers and switches, said Jesada Sivaraks, secretary to the NBTC's vice-chairman.

He said the incentive proposal was suggested by the Telecommunications Association of Thailand under the Royal Patronage, and the NBTC is preparing to raise the issue with the telecommunications committee.
