Digital Phone Co (DPC), the cellular subsidiary of Advanced Info Service (AIS), has requested CAT Telecom’s permission to test the 4G wireless broadband service, which is seen as AIS’ attempt to explore a new opportunity in the wireless broadband service field to compete with True Corp.
A source at AIS said that DPC is waiting for permission from CAT, which owns DPC’s concession, to test the 4G Long-term Evolution (LTE) technology service on DPC’s 1,800MHz spectrum. DPC is expected to test the service with all three telecom equipment suppliers Huawei Technologies, ZTE, and Ericsson.
