True Puts Thailand on the Map
CTO Christopher Hopcraft believes advanced technology and faster service will allow True to continue to be the fastest growing mobile service in Thailand. One of the first to deploy 4x4 MIMO across an entire network. He now is moving to 64 antennas and Massive MIMO.
Thailand has 69M people, more than Britain or France. Mobile penetration is 138%, as customers frequently switch between the three carriers. Some of the rice farmers in the Wikipedia picture probably carry a mobile.
A few years ago, China Mobile invested $880M for an 18% stake. They encouraged the company to stay at the forefront of technology. China Mobile was one of the first countries to deploy Massive MIMO. Thailand is now the fifth.
Huawei is the supplier.
