Just think all those Facebook users who plan and schedule bike racing on Thailand streets at night can easily be shutdown.  Or how about those selling illegal drugs?  Or setting up gambling sites or prostitution sites?  Or how about the illegal clinics and cosmetic sellers?  They will be shut down in a wink of an eye!

Went into the local Amphoe. They are still using Windows 7. Not real worried about Thailand doing anything remotely having to do with the internet.

  Do they even know that a 5G signal right now is good for about 3000 ft between towers. They would have to install thousands of towers throughout the country.  Also, 5g signal does not travel through walls. Thailand is really not ready for 5G let alone trying to master the controlling of information on the internet.
