United Information Highway (UIH), a joint venture between Benchachinda Holding and state-run telco CAT Telecom, held its first trials of 2.5GHz WiMAX wireless broadband services at the Meridien Beach Resort on the island of Phuket.

The company holds a trial 2.5GHz licence granted by the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) last year, but has not received the green light to roll out commercial services.

They tried to broadcast signal from Phuket’s coast to a speed boat about 1 km far. The result is so impression, more than 8 Mb/s for download speed and about 3 Mb/s for upload speed. They can sent realtime video without wire connection.
