Thailand Telecommunications and
Thailand Internet Market
Overview and Statistics Report
Thailand has started to energetically embrace Internet in its many forms
across the marketplace. Over the last five years, admittedly starting from
a very low base, the estimated number of Internet users in Thailand has
increased sixfold. ISPs also seem to be recovering from their earlier
reputation for unreliable performance. Now that the government taken the
first steps to fix the regulatory regime, with the CAT being sidelined from
the activities of the ISPs, there should be more opportunity for the Internet
business in Thailand to grow. This report looks at the Thai Internet market
and some of the major players involved. See summary and table of
Thailand Telecommunications Infrastructure
Thailand has dedicated a substantial amount of its resources to the building
of a national telecommunications infrastructure over the last decade or so.
The economic crisis of the late 1990s was certainly a setback to this long
term process. Nevertheless, the country has recovered much of the earlier
momentum and has been attracting foreign capital and expertise once more to
assist in the continuing process of expanding and integrating its networks.
This report looks at where the industry is at the moment in terms of
infrastructure and reviews the status of the major players involved in the
building and the operating of the telecommunications sector. See summary and table of
Thailand Broadband Market
Thailand would appear to have shrugged off its earlier hesitation about the
Internet. It has been energetically embracing everything online in the
marketplace. After a period of heavy dependence on dial-up, there are the
first signs of a serious push into broadband services. Most significantly,
some of the players are committing significant capital to build infrastructure.
And, with the government having finally put the new regulator in place, a start
has been made on restructuring the Internet market. Once the government's
changes to the regulatory regime start to impact, there should be more
opportunity for broadband Internet to flourish. This report looks at the
Thai broadband Internet market. See summary and table of

Broadband and Consumer E-Commerce
December 2006 Review
The future of E-Commerce in Thailand is positive.
Both the government and business sectors are well positioned to experience
the benefits of E-Commerce on a significant scale. Thailand government's ICT
plan for 2000-2010 plays an important role in building an environment that
helps E-Commerce by identifying and developing key building blocks, and
enhancing the electronic environment for trading and transactions among
businesses. The information infrasturcture is becoming more universal and
less expensive. Security, privacy protection, and trust are being enhanced
so that consumers will have more trust and confidence, and will try different
products and services in the future. These developments are creating great
opportunities E-Commerce solution providers, and E-Commerce-related service.
