Digital Economy and Society Minister Buddhipongse Punnakanta handed over the plan to TOT acting president Morakot Thienmontree on Wednesday morning. The plan requires the reorganisation of communication lines in inner Bangkok, namely in Pathum Wan and Bang Rak districts, including Lang Suan Road, at the top of Soi Saladaeng and Soi Convent.

The minister said this policy supports the goal of turning Bangkok into a smart metropolis and expects the project to be completed by August 2021.
