Thailand’s Ministry of ICT (MICT) in partnership with private telecom operator, True Move has launched a pilot project to offer free Wi-Fi in Nakhon Ratchasima province.

Group Captain Anudith Nakornthap said that the MICT selected Nakhon Ratchasima to be the first province outside Bangkok to trial the Public Free Wi-Fi project under the country’s ICT master theme of ‘Smart Thailand’.

“This trial project will especially enhance the use of free tablet pcs under the One Tablet Per Child Policy project, given to first grade students in Nakhon Ratchasima this year,” he added.

True Move planned to allow its 50,000 hot spots nationwide to join the MICT’s free Wi-Fi campaign. Users can select ‘ICT Free Wi-Fi by True’ network and register to obtain username and password. They can use free service up to 30 minutes per day, for the total of 15 hours per month with the download speed of 2 Mbps. Users will need to re-register every three months, said Suphachai Chearavanont, the Chief Executive Officer and President of True Move.
