Samart predicts MVNO revenue to be 10% of its total in 2010 – Thailand

Having gained a 5 year MVNO licence from the National Telecommunications Commission, Samart is still expecting a market launch for its MVNO in December. The company will launch mobile services as Samart I-Mobile (SIM – that will get confusing) on TOT’s coming 3G network in Bangkok.

The future MVNO is also Samart Corps handset division and the company is looking for 2010 to be a comeback year for the division, based on a predicted 20% revenue growth. The MVNO will retail both its I-Mobile phone and other handsets from mainstream manufacturers. The company expects 10% of its 2010 revenue to come as a result of SIM’s activities.
