At the moment, the networks are limited to handing no more than 40,000 requests per day, but the regulator wants to raise the bar to at least 300,000.
However, the labour union argues that this would adversely affect TOT as the private mobile networks who currently lease capacity on TOT's 2G network would be able to migrate their customers onto their own 3G services much faster.
Col Settapong Malisuwan, chairman of the NBTC's telecom committee, acknowledged the TOT labour union's move, telling the Bangkok Post: "The union is free to take any legal action against us."
He however added that "Customers on 2G networks have the right to switch to a new 3G operator,"
