3G deal with Real Move will enable CAT to gain Bt14 bn

CAT Telecom is estimated to gain at least Bt14 billion in revenue from leasing the planned wholesale 3G service capacity to True Corp’s Real Move throughout the 14-year contract term, a CAT source said.

The source added that the figure is based on CAT’s estimation of the net present value of the planned 3G-High Speed Packet Access (HSPA) wholesale service capacity business.

CAT will lease the planned HSPA network from BKFT (Thailand) of True’s subsidiary Real Future. Then CAT will mark up between 20 per cent to 22 per cent on this network leasing fee as the price of the wholesale capacity it will lease to Real Move, the CAT source added.

True’s chief executive officer Supachai Chearavanont said CAT would gain more benefits from the 3G partnership with True than if CAT opts to do this business on its own.
