DTAC Thailand

July 07, 2012

DTAC Thailand

DTAC Thailand DTAC Thailand is one of the leading telecommunication suppliers in Thailand. Founded in August 1989, it works on the 800 MHz and also 1800 MHz frequency bands under a concession given by the Communications Authority of Thailand (“CAT”). As of 6 September 2007, the Company’s authorized resources was Baht 4,744,161,260 of which Baht 4,735,622,000 was paid-up capital and also divided into 2,367,811,000 ordinary shares with a par value of Baht 2.

To advertise the advancement of telecommunication solutions in Thailand, the private sector was permitted to participate in the telecommunication market under acknowledgments on a Build-Transfer-Operate (“BTO”) basis with two state enterprises, which has actually been incorporated as TOT Corporation Public Company Limited (“TOT”) and know as TOT Public Company Limiteded and CAT Telecom Public Company Limited (“CAT”)..

Under the BTO setup, the private operators, as concession holders, are required to construct network infrastructure and transfer the resources to the state agencies giving the concessions. The operators thereafter have an unique right to make use of the assets, in the course of the term of the concession, as well as a cellular network to supply services on a profits sharing basis with the state firms awarding the concessions (in DTAC’s case ‘CAT’)  in return for the exclusive right to the use of the allocated frequency band.

High Speed Data Coverage

DTAC Thailand services have been designed with a quality communication experience in mind. Their network has been constructed to prevent calls being disconnected and is said to be even better than world standards. Their network service covers all provinces and districts nationwide across the country. They currently have more than 8,300 base stations and more than 1,500 additional base stations were installed in the year 2008, which was a huge 12 billion baht investment by DTAC.

Network Data coverage

DTAC offers High-speed connections with EDGE and GPRS technology nationwide across the country.

What is EDGE and GPRS?

EDGE and GPRS are data technologies which form part of the GSM mobile network standard. GPRS has speeds of up to 40 kbit/s, while EDGE has speed of up to 200 kbit/s. The EDGE network is purposely built to give DTAC customers a steady speed, rather than large variable ups and downs of data throughput. As a result you can expect an average speed on EDGE of around 120 kbps when using DTAC’s network and this speed can vary according to peak network traffic hours. dtac-thailand

The company is planning to establish around an additional 3,000 base stations in Thailand, which is a 40% increase from their current 7,000 stations that exist today.

Roaming with DTAC
