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.

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.

Through this network rollout, we are enabling Thai citizens to access faster mobile broadband services that can enrich their everyday lives.”
