Anudith warns CAT not to switch off CDMA network

- +

CAT Telecom is prohibited from turning off Hutch's CDMA-based mobile network as long as its controversial third-generation (3G) deals with concessionaire True Corporation remain unresolved, warns the information and communication technology minister. 

"CAT must wait for a clear interpretation from the Council of State on whether its contract signed with True is subject to the 1992 Public-Private Joint Venture Act, or it will face a legal challenge," said Gp Capt Anudith Nakornthap.

If the contracts fall under the act, they will be scrapped immediately and future contracts will require cabinet approval, he added.
