- +

CAT Telecom will be given only one year to reuse the 1800-megahertz spectrum once its mobile concessions expire, says the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC). 

"We will certainly not extend the right by as much as 12 years, as requested by CAT, to reuse the 25 MHz of spectrum once the existing concessions of True Move and Digital Phone expire on Sept 15," said Col Settapong Malisuwan, chairman of the NBTC's telecom committee.

The concessions of True Move, a unit of True Corporation, and Digital Phone, a unit of Advanced Info Service, are set to expire under agreements with state-owned CAT.
