­Hutchison Telecom is reported to have agreed to sell its Thai CDMA assets to CAT Telecom for an undisclosed amount. The local Nation newspaper however said that CAT is expected to offer Bt5 billion-Bt7.5 billion for Hutchison's business, assets and CDMA network in 25 provinces.

CAT's own CDMA network covers 51 provinces in the country, while the Hutch network - itself a JV between CAT and Hutchison Telecom - covers the remaining 25 central provinces, along with the capital city. CAT Telecom/Hutch ended last September with around 1.1 million subscribers and a market share of just 1.7%.

Under the plans, Hutch will upgrade its network to EVDO, then the combined network will be relaunched as a single nationwide network under a new brandname.
