Thai's concerned over too much mobile phone usage

Other countries, such as the Philippines or China, but Thailand is complaining. Complaining specifically about the costs that the youth segment occurs by using data and SMS services. It is said that combined spending by all age groups on such services amounted to roughly US$500 million this year, up more than 100% over 2003.

Secretary-general of Ampon Kitti-ampon yhe National Economic and Social Development Board said that "Today Thais, specifically teens, spend too much on mobile phones, and they're encouraged by cell-phone operators' fierce campaigns. Even TV programmes today encourage viewers to participate by sending a short message to express opinions or join a lucky draw."
