Total Access Communication PLC (TAC) announced today that its strategic partner and shareholder Telenor had been appointed as a new board member of the GSM Association, the world's leading wireless industry representative body.

The announcement was made following an official report unveiled by the GSM Association (GSMA) in Cannes, France, yesterday.
Telenor is one of a few European operators that managed to get into the GSM board, considerably an important step for the company to further synergize its global network.

Telenor Mobile Group CEO and TAC's Board director Arve Johansan is one of the world's 21 leading operator executives voted to sit on the new Board.   The board's member companies and groups represent more than 80 percent of the total GSM customer base, which is currently over 800 million.

The Norwegian telecom giant has stakes in 12 companies outside Norway including TAC, Thailand's second largest mobile phone operator. Telenor acquired approximately 30% in TAC and 25% in TAC's parent company United Communication Industry (UCOM).

'The move will not only increase Telenor's contribution to the global wireless communication community, but will also allow its business partner like TAC to have their voices heard and recognised at the international level,' according to TAC Co-chief executive officer Sigve Brekke.   He added that TAC's 5.5 million subscribers had significantly contributed to Telenor's appointment as the GSMA board member.

'As a GSMA board member, Telenor would play a significant role in determining the global wireless industry's future commercial and initiative direction,' said Mr. Sigve, also former Managing Director of Telenor Asia.

Meanwhile Mr. Arve said he welcomed the move as a significant step towards a more advancement of telecommunication industry.   'This is a milestone in the maturity of our industry, and signals a new era of global alignment for operators in terms of accelerating and economizing the roll out of new mobile technologies, applications and services across the world,' he added.

The new board, comprising of a strong mix of the largest operators in the world based on global GSM subscribers, would focus on a number of prioritised issues, including putting in place global platforms and global interoperability, ensuring a closer commercial and strategic focus on the collective needs of all GSM Association operator members.

The GSM family of wireless communications platforms, including GSM, GPRS (General Packet Radio Services), EDGE (Enhanced Data for GSM Evolution) and W-CDMA account for approximately 71 percent of the total digital wireless market today.
