The International Comparative Legal Guide to: Telecommunication Laws and Regulations 2012 – Thailand Chapter

Global Legal Group

Thailand is currently in the middle of a major transition in its regulation of the electronic communications industry, as it moves from its tradition of state-owned enterprises in the sector to a competitive landscape involving many different providers. To put this transition into context, the Thailand chapter of The International Comparative Legal Guide to Telecommunications Laws and Regulations 2012 provides a comprehensive overview of the Kingdom’s telecommunications laws and regulations, presented in a Q&A format. The guide covers a variety of topics, such as the main regulatory bodies overseeing the sector, authorizations, public vs. private works, accessibility, pricing, radio frequency spectrum, data retention and interception, internet usage, and potential future changes to the regulatory regime.

This article appeared in the 2012 edition of The International Comparative Legal Guide to: Telecommunication Laws and Regulations, published by Global Legal Group Ltd, London.
