Bangkok Bank ATMs to close tonight

PHUKET: All Bangkok Bank ATMs across Thailand will be closed from 6 pm this evening until 4 pm tomorrow (October 9), so that the bank can test the readiness of its cash point system for Y2K. The only exceptions will be in Bangkok, where the ATMs will close at 10 pm, reopening at 4 pm tomorrow. Mongkol Thongprasarn, assistant manager of the Phuket Town branch, told the Gazette this afternoon that in order to test the computer system, the bank will set computer clocks forward to January 4, 2000 – the first banking day of next year. Other facilities, such as currency exchange and over-the-counter withdrawals by credit card, will not be affected by the test.
