Thailand’s AIS and DTAC to share towers
Thailand’s Advanced Info Service (AIS) and Total Access Communication (DTAC) are to share some of their telecoms towers in the country in a bid to strengthen their nationwide service, according to local reports.
DTAC is in urgent need of network facilities to expand its mobile broadband service, a source has told reporters, and further details of the collaboration will allegedly be revealed on Friday.
AIS announced in September that it was boosting its number of small cell sites in Thailand to 3,000, and in June, the operator partnered with Alcatel-Lucent to deploy a 100G optical transport network in the country.
In November last year, DTAC subsidiary TriNet penned a deal with Ericsson for a nationwide LTE upgrade.
