Thailand - Regulator warns that 3G licences would be withdrawn for abuses of consumer protection laws

[bangkok post] The National Telecommunication Commission (NTC) on Monday warned private operators that their 3G licences could be taken away from them if they do not abide by consumer protection laws.

NTC member Natee Sukolrat said measures had been put in place to protect consumers using 3G services.

"Firms that win a 3G licence are required to develop a corporate social responsibility (CSR) policy, which covers many issues such as junk mail management, consumer health and contingency planning," the commissioner said.

He said private operators must strictly follow the regulations. Otherwise, their licences could be revoked.
