Advanced Wireless Network (AWN) paid Bt20.493 billion to the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) yesterday as the first installment of the 1,800MHz license upfront fee. (Khao Hoon, 25/11/15)
Comment: And TRUE hadn’t paid their first part yet. Surprised much? Eyes are now fully focused on the remaining 900 MHz that should be up for bidding in December, we think it’s something that both DTAC and ADVANC have to win, each for their own business reasons otherwise DTAC is effectively out of the telco game and ADVANC won’t have enough spectrum. Now would JAS come to ruin the party for all the incumbents by pushing the price up just as they had done in the first round of bidding?

Comment: We have never really cared much for this company only because we were always worried about its inventory turnover and HMPRO, as a business, is by far a better choice. But if and its a big if, GLOBAL can expand further in Cambodia, Laos etc etc and have a strong foothold in both markets then I may be more interested, but still their inventory management has me scratching my head.
