The Thai mobile market continues to grow. By mid-2009 there were 64 million mobile subscribers in the country and penetration was around the 100% mark. The subscriber numbers were up from 30 million in 2005.
With the arrival of two additional players in the mobile market – TA Orange (later called True Move) and Hutchison CAT – almost a decade ago, the powerful duopoly of AIS and DTAC was fundamentally challenged as competition began heating up. There was also the launch of Thai Mobile, the TOT/CAT mobile joint venture, over this period.
The market is now in need of some rationalisation; regulatory changes will continue to be a big factor in shaping the future market. This means that much will depend on the government and the regulator to make the necessary changes. The commercial rollout of 3G networks will also be watched with great interest. This report presents an overview of the Thai mobile market, including some pertinent statistics.
