Operational efficiency, so costs will be low. Given these facts, as well as the lingering hesitancy of expanding with fibre, the possibilities of this much desired optical connectivity can be realised through PON. The demand for cost-effective, last-mile fibre solutions are also increasing due to the high bandwidth requirements of households and businesses; the large expenditure on active equipment and the on-going challenges of delivering high-capacity internet in densely populated areas are only some of the existing concerns.
A key valuation metric is addressable market. That actually has been a key and ever-present issue in the competitive era. Once service providers have adequate network technology, they can begin realizing new revenue immediately, rather than retrenching or redeploying more equipment.
Many of those services are beyond the capability of current networks. These metrics can only increase in importance as consumers adopt new, high-bandwidth services. But beyond the police force itself, the ruling military government has empowered networks of citizens whom it encourages to denounce those who post online content considered contrary to government policies.
Service providers with FTTH will have a significant feature advantage in the ability to provide their customers a wide range of interactive services with guaranteed bandwidth rates-all without the need to rewire or purchase new equipment.
The plan to reduce internet gateways was initially proposed by Pol Gen Somyot Poompanmoungthe chief of the Royal Thai Policeas a single gateway system makes it easier for state authorities to monitor, filter, delete, and intercept information on the internet that the authorities deem inappropriate.
Both the cost and time-to-market should be considered, as either will alienate subscribers and allow competitors to enter. Subscribers who can be served by a variety of high-bandwidth digital services over their current access method are expected to command premium valuations.
The MICT has been ordered to report the progress on the plan to the cabinet before the end of September
