TT&T launches new services

PHUKET: Thai Telephone & Telecommunication (TT&T) has launched a new gadget that it says will make the use of phones “more effective” – a caller ID box. The box, attached to a telephone, shows on a small screen the telephone number of the person calling in. It will also record the numbers of people trying to reach you while you are out. The gadget, which will work only on TT&T lines, costs 599 baht. A telephone set with the caller ID screen built in is also available, at 1,299 baht. TT&T is also offering three add-on services free to new subscribers who sign up for telephone service before December 31. In addition to getting a phone line, the new subscribers will get conference call capability (up to three lines), call waiting (whereby the subscriber, already talking on the phone, is alerted to another incoming call, and may switch between them), and call forwarding to another land line or to a mobile phone. Thais wishing to apply must provide copies of their ID card and home registration document. Foreigners must provide copies of their passport and a work permit valid for at least three months into the future. Foreigners not working in Thailand are, it seems, excluded from the offer. A deposit of 2,918 baht and an installation fee of 3,584 baht are payable up-front. For more information, contact the TT&T Koh Kaew office at 272814; the Poonpol office at 246022-3; the Karon office at 286006-7; or the Patong office at 292005.
