New market study, "Thailand Telecommunications Report Q2 2016", has been published

In 201 6 , the focus in the Thai mobile sector will be on 4G as the 2015 spectrum auctions saw operators forking out exorbitant amounts for valuable spectrum , which will enable them to expand their LTE networks and range of value-added-services (VAS) without having the state-owned operators taking a cut as per the previous BTO-concession model. On the fixed broadband side, the NBTC and ICT ministry have laid out investment and roll - out plans for a national broadband network , using proceeds from the spectrum auction, enlisting state-owned CAT and TOT to carry it out. However, the lack of regulator independence an d a political agenda in telecoms still inhibit development of the industry.

Latest Updates And Industry Developments

Total mobile subscriptions fell sharply to 83.09mn in Q315 as a result of the compulsory SIM registration drive which lasted till August. This was a 23.4% y-o-y contraction of total mobile subscribers. However, a notable effect was the resulting rise in 3G/4G subscriptions as a percentage of total mobile subscriptions to 9 2 %, from 82% a year earlier, and we forecast total 3G/4G subscriptions to reach 92.55mn by end-2020.

Despite the focus largely on the mobile sector this year, latest fixed broadband subscription data from the regulator has shown a strong continuous growth in subscribers, to 6.04mn in Q315, y-o-y growth of 9.2%. We believe this steady increase will continue in 2016 and reach 6.29mn by the year-end.
