3G auction to go ahead in Thailand despite possible lawsuits


While TOT plans to forge ahead with the e-auction for its Bt17.44-billion project to establish a nationwide third-generation telecom network on Friday, it remains to be seen whether it can achieve this goal in the face of a possible lawsuit by the disqualified bidders.

A telecom industry source, while declining to elaborate, said ‘an attempt’ was also being made to delay the auction.

According to a primary qualification examination by TOT, the SL consortium of Loxley, Samart, Nokia Siemens Networks and Huawei Technologies and the AU consortium of Advanced Information Technology, Alcatel-Lucent (Thailand) and United Communication Industry are the two qualified bidders. The two disqualified bidders are the Ericsson-AS Associate Engineering (1964) and Forth Corp-ZTE consortia.
