Four virtual network operators have formed a trade alliance to seek a stronger bargaining position with their joint airtime provider.

The four Thailand based MVNOs, I-Mobile Plus; The WhiteSpace; 168 Communication; and Myworld 3G all use the same main network, CAT Telecom for their airtime services.

"Even though the mobile market in Thailand has reached a mature level with the country's penetration rate of 145%, we believe there is still enough room for MVNOs to grow given many untapped segments, especially in the rural market," Mr Watchai, of one of the MVNOs, I-Mobile Plus, told the Bangkok Post.

In addition to being in a stronger position to negotiate with the CAT, they aim to share some back-office services to reduce operating costs.

The country currently has more than 20 MVNOs.
