Thaicom Plc, the country’s sole satellite service provider, is considering relocating its local satellite base to another country in Asia Pacific where it has satellite footprints in order to avoid further political risks, according to a source. 

Thaicom’s satellite operating base in Lat Lum Kaeo district, Pathum Thani.

The review comes after the company feels increasing uncertainty in its long-term business operations and development in Thailand after the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) took six months to approve Thaicom’s proposal to operate a new broadcasting satellite, Thaicom 8, without having to apply for a new operating licence.
