BANGKOK – Thailand’s Ministry of a Digital Economy and Society (DE) signed an agreement on 5G use-case testing with 40 alliances from the public and private sectors. The testing center will take place at the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC).
At Kasetsart University, Sri Racha Campus, in Sri Racha district, Chon Buri province, the DE Minister, Dr. Pichet Durongkaveroj, signed the agreement on 5G use-case testing with 40 alliances from the public and private sectors.
The testing center, called 5G Testbed@Sriracha, is located in the premises of Kasetsart University, Sri Racha Campus, which is in the EEC. Facilities have been prepared to support digital investment in the EEC.
The DE Ministry and Kasetsart University, Sri Racha Campus, have been developing 5G infrastructure since the beginning of February 2019. The ministry and its alliances will conduct Thailand’s first ever 5G use-case testing, both indoors and outdoors.
The public and private sectors will promote and support the use of 5G at the 5G Test-bed to make sure that the technology can be used successfully in the EEC. The move is in line with the DE Ministry’s role in promoting Thailand as the 5G technology development center of the region.
