Comparison of Readiness for Telecommunication of Thailand and other Countries in AEC


Thunyawadee Sucharidtham

This study had the objectives of analyzing the causes, strengths and weaknesses of infrastructure related to Thailand’s telecommunications compared with those of other countries in AEC. Data was derived from the rankings of different agencies outside the country, namely the ICT Development Index, Digital Economy Rankings, Network Readiness and World Competitiveness Yearbook. The study results showed that for Thailand to get ready in terms of policy and investment budget, it might need cooperation from other AEC member countries that scored high in preparation of readiness standards in telecommunications such as Singapore, Malaysia and Brunei in order to promote Thailand’s telecommunications to become a leader among the countries in AEC when Thailand joins the ASEAN Economic Community in 2015.
