1 October 2020: On its 30th anniversary, AIS’s network is dedicated to bringing benefits and developing innovation in digital technology to upgrade quality of life, economy, society and the environment to create new opportunities and new capabilities for Thais. The company is ready to lead the way for all to surmount every crisis with the power of 5G network technology, and provide knowledge through its digital platforms to reskill Thai workers.

AIS Chief Executive Officer Somchai Lertsutiwong commented, “it is now over 30 years since AIS has been a part of upgrading the country's digital infrastructure by developing telecommunications technology from 1G to 5G. In this period, the telecom industry grew by over 90 million numbers. This also entailed growth of the digital economy to support the creation of new business formats and employment, bringing about national growth with powerful capabilities and competitive potential.

 “Our pride over the last 30 years has not only been in building digital infrastructure for Thai people. We have also generated revenue for the state and national benefits worth a total of 915 billion baht, along with continual investment of over 1.1 trillion baht. This year we have planned investment budgets of 35 billion baht to further strengthen the country's digital infrastructure. On the occasion of our 30th anniversary, we are determined to apply technology to national development, to revive the economy and to overcome challenges. The starting point of AIS’s new decade is 5G technology, which will have a crucial role in delivering both virtual reality experience to Thais, and upgrading the competitive capabilities of the industrial sector, as an infrastructure for every sector. Even the public sector can grow sustainably.”

On the occasion of its 30th birthday, AIS staff want to thank their customers and the people of Thailand who have put their trust and confidence in AIS operations. On this occasion, the company is ready to announce its commitment by providing quality services and collaborating with every sector, which includes:
