The minimum reserve price for the 4G licence auction of the 900-megahertz spectrum was finally approved by the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission board yesterday, says the NBTC vice-chairman.
The NBTC's telecom committee set a reserve price of 11.3 billion baht for 10 MHz of bandwidth, while it is 8.45 billion for another 7.5 MHz, said Settapong Malisuwan, chairman of the NBTC's telecom committee.
The NBTC plans to hold the auction for two 4G licences with a combined 17.5 MHz of bandwidth in November, with one containing 10 MHz and the other 7.5 MHz. The 900-MHz spectrum is used by mobile leader Advanced Info Service, and its concession is due to expire in September 2015.
