Synopsis

The Thai telecom market is a complex commercial environment, with a mix of state-owned companies and private operators functioning under a wide variety of corporate and regulatory structures and interfaces. CAT Telecom is set to merge with its sister fixed line operator TOT to create a stronger business.

Penetration in the fixed line market in Thailand has been declining at a significant and increasing rate over the past five years. A major reason for this is due to the dominance of the mobile segment and the growth of mobile broadband segment. The market is predicted to further decline over the next five years to 2024 as both mobile and mobile broadband penetration continue to increase.

There is strong interest to establish Thailand as a data centre hub to serve the region. The size, capacity and spread of existing data centres in the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) outside of Thailand is small compared with Thailand. Power stability is still a problem there to some extent, while the network performance and quality limited due to restricted fibre connectivity. This is restricting customers migrating to colocation or cloud services within data centres.

Thailand 4.0 vision has been developed from a realization that digital technologies can drive socio-economic development and economic growth of countries.

As a part of its Thailand 4.0 initiative the country had set itself the target of creating at least 100 smart cities within its borders over the next two decades.

Key developments:

  • A digital roadmap to achieve its "Thailand 4.0" vision has been developed.
  • The fixed line market remains underdeveloped and penetration has been declining over the past five years.
  • There is strong interest to establish Thailand as a data centre hub to serve the region.
