State-run TOT Plc plans to provide 3G broadband services by April next year, TOT managing director Warut Suwakorn said on Thursday.
“TOT is now procuring the network equipment and the setup is expected to be complete within three months,” Mr Warut said.
He said the service should be launched within six months, as set by the Information and Communication Technology Ministry.
Krung Thai Bank had initially offered to provide financial consulting services to TOT, while Kasikornbank had offered to provide loans to the state telecom enterprise.
TOT was also considering obtaining foreign loans from Standard Charter, Barclays and Ericson State banks.
