The National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) board will consider on Wednesday (January 15) the compensation amount MCOT will receive for handing over its 2600MHz band to NBTC for an auction, NBTC secretary-general Takorn Tatasith has said.

The NBTC had recalled MCOT's 2600MHz band totalling 150MHz. It has combined the band with other 2600MHz band totalling 40MHz it reclaimed from the Public Relations Department.

The combined amount of 2600MHz will be auctioned off on February 16. Auctions will also be held for 700MHz, 1800MHz, and 2.6GHz.

The NBTC reportedly proposed to the board that MCOT be compensated with more than Bt11 billion.

Four companies have already picked up bid documents for the 2600MHz, namely TrueMove H Universal Communication of True Corp Group, dtac TriNet of Total Access Communication, CAT Telecom and TOT.
