TT&T introduces high-speed ‘Max Net’

UBON RATCHATHANI: In an all-bells-and-whistles launch in this eastern Isarn city on July 1, telephone company TT&T went into the ISP business, with the introduction of a nationwide broadband service.

The launch included video conference link-ups with both Phuket and Chiang Mai, via the Internet, as a way to demonstrate what may be achieved with TT&T’s new system.

The company boasts that high-speed Internet access is now available for 1.5 million provincial fixed line telephone numbers nationwide.

“Max Net”, TT&T’s latest product, offers high-speed broadband Internet access at a 256/128kbps transfer rate for 590 baht a month, or a 512/256kbps transfer rate for 790 baht.

Suroj Lamsam, Senior Vice-President of TT&T’s Marketing and Service Group said, “Max Net provides unlimited use in terms of time, no [call] charges, and users can still make calls while online. This is a winning package.”

Until July 10, TT&T will be running a nationwide “Fast and Fun with Max Net” promotion.

“We hope that our 10-day campaign will attract 10,000 new users. On our very first day, we signed up 200 customers in Ubon Ratchathani,” K. Suroj said.

“TT&T foresees the continual growth of broadband and Internet businesses, so we are focusing on the development of signal channels and networks,” he added.

TT&T currently provides 50,000 ports for broadband users nationwide. It expects to have 100,000 ports by year-end and is aiming for 300,000 by 2007.

Prachuab Tantinon, President & CEO of TT&T said that whereas, in the past 13 years, the company had simply provided telephone services, now, “… TT&T wants to support learning via the Internet and, with Max Net, we aim to provide access that satisfies our customers.”
