CAT, TOT seek rate hikes to pay for Pattaya wire-burying project

PATTAYA:–Internet providers are threatening to raise rates on customers to cover their costs to bury their cables underground in Pattaya.
Deputy Mayor Apichart Virapal said June 8 that CAT Telecom and TOT PLC both are complaining about the costs to rewire connections to customers homes and businesses stemming from the Provincial Electricity Authority’s nationwide project to move overhead power and utility lines underground.
In Pattaya, wires already have been buried along Central Road and currently are being moved on North Road. Three other phases are planned for Pattaya, leading to nearly 47 kilometers of wires to be submerged.
TOT and CAT, both public enterprises partially funded by the government, want to pass the costs of moving their wires on to customers, a move Apichart said Pattaya opposes. MP – EP
