Thailand - Fixed Broadband Market, Digital Economy and Digital Media - Statistics and Analyses
The expansion of broadband internet in Thailand in the early stages saw widespread adoption of Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) services, together with some significantly lesser deployment of the cable modem option, as well as some broadband wireless access. Fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) continues to grow strongly in major metropolitan areas. AIS commercially launched its residential fibre broadband service, AIS Fibre', offering connection speeds of up to 1Gbps via FTTH.
The Thailand market has witnessed reasonably strong growth in the fixed broadband market over the past few years from a relatively small base. Fixed broadband penetration remains low mainly due to a limited number of fixed lines and the dominance of the mobile platform. Over the next five years to 2022 slower and declining growth is predicted.
The penetration of Internet users in Thailand has grown very strongly over the past five years driven by strong growth in mobile broadband. Slower but still moderate growth is predicted over the next five years to 2022 due to a maturing market.
In 2017 Thailands Ministry of Sciences & Technology, Ministry of Digital Economy & Society, and Huawei, jointly developed a digital roadmap to achieve its Thailand 4.0 vision. The Road Map has been developed from a realization that digital technologies can drive socio-economic development and economic growth of countries.
