The National Telecom (NT) has approved an investment worth TBH800 million for a 26 GHz network installation project in Thailand. This is the first phase of funding out of the THB6.7 billion investment required for the project over a period of 14 years. 

Procurement for the project will be finalised by early 2024 with the network installation scheduled to be completed by March 2024. 

NT will provide fixed-wireless access service along with a private 5G network for manufacturers, ports, logistics operations and airports by using its 700MHz as core network. By 2029, the company plans to provide its 5G technology on the 26GHz range to 438 organisations located in the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC).
