TOT mulls early end to concession


TOT Plc may end its mobile concession contract with Advanced Info Service (AIS) this year, two years before the expiration date, to enable the state telecom to earn a final sum of 40 billion baht from the mobile leader.

The proposal is part of TOT's survival plans after its concession revenue vanishes at the end of this year.

Under Section 84 of the Frequency Allocation Act of 2010, TOT must return concession revenue and revenue from frequency-related services to the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) starting this Dec 20. The NBTC will then pass the revenue to the state.

The AIS concession is set to expire in 2015. The country's largest mobile operator provides second-generation (2G) service on the 900-megahertz frequency for 35 million subscribers.

AIS pays about 20 billion baht in concession revenue per year.

Yongyuth Wattanasin, TOT's chief executive, admitted it has been in talks with AIS since last year.

"We will raise the idea to the Finance Ministry, our major shareholder, for approval," he said.

Under the proposal, Mr Yongyuth said the amount of AIS's concession payment for the last two years would be converted to a network rental fee equal to the sum of the concession fees. The rental fee would be reviewed after the expiry date.

Panthep Chamrasromran, a former TOT chairman, said he discussed the issue with top executives of AIS parent Shin Corporation.

Finance Minister Kittiratt Na-Ranong supports TOT's idea, saying it could strengthen the state enterprise's financial health and would have no effect on overall government revenue.

Mr Panthep urged TOT to accelerate its survival plan to prepare for a possible revenue impact.

"If TOT could be stronger, it could send more money from its operating profits to the state coffers," he said.

TOT transferred 8 billion baht to the state last year.

Mr Panthep compared TOT to a human with cancer, saying: "The state must choose whether it will 'do-or-die'."

He suggested TOT quickly set up two units as network service providers.

Mr Panthep previously outlined a plan to gather all 15,000 base stations from its concessionaire AIS along with TOT's 3G base stations and its existing 300,000 cement telecom poles nationwide and rent them to telecom network operators.
