The National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) on Thursday signed a collaboration deal with Chiang Mai University, Khon Kaen University and Prince of Songkla University to set up a 5G testing centre at the three campuses.

The NBTC has already joined with Chulalongkorn University to set up a 5G wireless broadband technology testing centre at the university.

These moves are part of the regulator’s continued preparations for 5G to get off the ground next year.

Khon Kaen University will focus on smart agriculture and Prince of Songkla University will study long-distance telehealth and smart security.

Chiang Mai University will concentrate on telemedicine, smart cities, virtual reality and robotics.

NBTC secretary-general Takorn Tantasith said that all these campuses, including Chulalongkorn University, were expected to start the testing in the next few months.
