AIS launches 5G commercial service
Advanced Info Service (AIS) kicked off its 2600MHz 5G commercial service today (February 24), making it the first 5G operator in the country to do so.
The mobile phone operator officially received the 2600MHz licence on February 21 and switched on its 5G network the same day.
As part of the launch, AIS is giving its subscribers, who buy upcoming smartphone models such as the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G or Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G, the right to use them with its 5G service free of charge until June 30.
The two models, which will go on sale here in early March, will be able to use AIS’s 5G service instantly after a software upgrade.
AIS will also provide its 5G users with 5G international calls, beginning with the Philippines courtesy of Globe Telecom, and 5G international roaming starting in Switzerland via Swisscom.
