As per sources, the Thai government intends to push 5G for driving the economy and has lately opened an auction for 5G spectrum to the country’s prominent operators, including True. For the record, Eastern Economic Corridor is a development project under the Thailand 4.0 program which the government has planned to develop into a hub for regional transportation and logistics, trade and investment, and a strategic gateway to Asia.

David Oxford, the Country Director of Nokia Thailand, has stated that True Group has been its major IP and optical networking client for many years.
