PTT Executive Vice President for the Oil Business Unit Saran Rangkasiri has announced that PTT and TOT have collaborated to launch a free wireless internet service under the name “PTT Free Wi-Fi by TOT” to provide patrons of PTT gas stations with access to the online world. Initially, the free Wi-Fi project is available at 200 gas stations in Bangkok and other provinces. It is expected that the free service will be available at 1,000 PTT gas stations within the next 5-6 months.
TOT has been assigned the responsibility of procuring and installing the internet system and equipment. Internet users are required to register for a username and password before they can gain access to the 2 megabyte internet service. Valid for 6 months, the password grants users 2 hours of free internet usage each day. However, users are allowed no more than 30 minutes per session.
Mr. Saran said that the free Wi-Fi project is in compliance with the government’s policy to encourage internet access for the public free of charge.
