The auction had promised to transform the $4.7 billion sector, with telecom firms no longer operating under fixed-term concessions granted by state firms, and free to build up their own networks, with foreign entrants perhaps entering the fray.
* Opts to be MVNO operator due to lower costs
(Reuters) -Telecoms group Samart Corp Pcl SAMA.BK said on Monday it would not take part in an upcoming auction for third-generation mobile phone licences in Thailand, sending its stock down as much as 6.3 percent.
Instead, the company said it preferred to offer a full service as a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO), which required a lower investment budget than building a 3G network.
“We chose the full MVNO plan over the 3G auction by considering the value of investment, risk and future opportunity,” Chief Executive Watchai Vilailuck said in a statement.
