The National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) has given five mobile phone operators until Friday to scrap the expiry date on prepaid mobile credit.
NBTC secretary-general Thakorn Tantasit said on Monday he had informed each mobile operator -- Advanced Info Service (AIS), Total Access Communication (Dtac), True Move, TOT Plc and CAT Telecom -- to remove the expiry period on refills for prepaid numbers or face a 100,000 baht fine per day.
However, the NBTC will later allow each operator to propose an expiry date for its prepaid services, but did not say when that will be introduced. The proposed dates will be considered and then the number of days will be decided with the agreement of all the operators.
