Thai operators apply 15 per cent price cut

Thailand’s mobile operators have agreed to lower their 3G tariff plans by between 15 to 20 per cent, as instructed by national telecoms regulator the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC).

According to local reports, the NBTC directed the nation’s operators to slash their prices a few weeks ago, but the operators raised the mobile data allowance by an equivalent amount instead, prompting a review of the way the tariff cut was being applied.

The NBTC believes operators slashing prices by at least 15 per cent will save mobile users 54.8bn baht ($1.8bn) a year or 822bn baht over the 15-year licensing period, reported the Bangkok Post.
