To meet the needs of a data-hungry new generation of users in densely populated areas, dtac TriNet Co., Ltd, a subsidiary of Thailand’s second-largest mobile operator dtac, has assigned long-time partner Ericsson to deploy a 4G/LTE network.

The 4G/LTE on 2100MHz rollout began in February 2014 and once completed consumers can expect a superior user experience when browsing the internet on their smartphones or downloading movies at much faster speeds. By deploying 4G/LTE on 2100MHz, dtac TriNet will ensure improved network capacity and enhanced performance in Bangkok. dtac will also have a cost-effective network ready for continued data-traffic growth.

Panya Vechbanyongratana, Senior Vice President, Network Operations Division, dtac, says: “ Our vision of Internet for All, equality of access to all Thais, is to enable all Thai people to access the internet for a better quality of life. Enhancing customer experience in data services. We are pleased to roll out 4G services and we’re convinced it will lead to many advantages not only for our users, who will enjoy better and faster access to information through our high-speed mobile broadband network. It will also foster entrepreneurship and active development among mobile operators, vendors, application developers and content producers.”

Camilla Vautier, Head of Ericsson Thailand, says: “This confirms our long-standing partnership with dtac and is important, not only for Ericsson but also in terms of realizing the Networked Society. Through this network rollout, we are enabling Thai citizens to access faster mobile broadband services that can enrich their everyday lives.”

Ericsson is the market leader in LTE. Today, 50 percent of the world’s LTE smartphone traffic is served by Ericsson networks, which is more than double the traffic of our closest competitor. More than 180 LTE RAN and Evolved Packet Core networks have been delivered worldwide, of which more than 120 have gone live commercially. Ericsson is present today in all high-traffic LTE markets including the US, Japan, South Korea, Australia and Canada, and has been selected by the top 10 LTE operators, as ranked by LTE subscriptions worldwide.
