Top 3 Mobile Networks in Thailand

If you are looking for mobile network service providers in Thailand, there are a few options you can consider. The main mobile network operators include AIS, DTAC, TrueMove, MY, and TOT. All of them already provide GSM/3GPP technologies, such as GSM, EDGE, UMTS, and LTE.

Thailand’s first LTE network launched in 2013 and since then there has been considerable growth in the mobile industry. However, the industry is dominated by the top three: AIS, DTAC, and TrueMove.

A study done by OpenSignal.com entitled the State of Mobile Networks: Thailand in 2017 measured the performance of the top three operators in various metrics, including 4G Download Speed, 3G Download Speed, Overall Download Speed, 4G Latency, 3G Latency and 4G Availability. The results reveal that while all three operators excelled in LTE availability, TrueMove dominates in the 4G speed and availability category.
