TrueMove H, the leader in 4G+ mobile service in Thailand, and WeChat, the leading social communications app in China from Tencent, have jointly launched "TrueMove H WeChat Go SIM," a prepaid SIM card specifically designed for Chinese tourists. This is an exclusive deal between TrueMove H and Tencent to provide customers with a convenient way to enjoy unlimited use of WeChat services and a shared experience in Thailand through the TrueMove H 4G+ HD network which offers nationwide coverage.

Mr. Suphakit Vuntanadit, Group Chief Commercial Officer, True Corporation Plc. said, "Tourism in Thailand has been continuously growing, particularly from Chinese tourists who consider Thailand a top destination to visit. Last year, Thailand welcomed 9.5 million Chinese tourists, with the number this year expected to reach 12 million. We are now collaborating with WeChat to ensure that Chinese tourists in Thailand are not only enjoying sightseeing and great food, but also have great experiences which they can share on their social networks while traveling. This includes access to travel content, maps and navigation, but most importantly, to give them a more hassle-free experience during their visit. With the TrueMove H 4G+ HD network, Chinese tourists can experience the strength of our top-notch service nationwide."

Tencent and TrueMove H will provide Chinese tourists with a better experience to stay connected and share their travel experiences in Thailand with the launch of TrueMove H WeChat Go SIM, the first and only product offering unlimited use of WeChat services, and a worry-free experience from internet charges while always being connected throughout their journey.

With 980 million monthly active user accounts (MAU) as at September 2017, WeChat is the most popular mobile social communications platform in China, making its users' life more fun, social, convenient and efficient. WeChat is a communication means for Chinese to share their travel experience and communicate to their friends and family at home when they visit to Thailand. The partnership with TrueMove H allows WeChat to offer Chinese travelers an enhanced experience while visiting Thailand. Through its network of partners, including TrueMove H which offers a nationwide 4G HD network, WeChat offers exciting value-added services to its users.

TrueMove H WeChat Go SIM will provide free access to WeChat, local talk time, international direct dialing (IDD) 20 minutes, worry-free data and connections to WiFi by TrueMove H for free, in addition to entertainment through the Lingcod TV mobile app, developed by video streaming provider Sunway Media, which offers high-definition movies, documentaries, and educational content from China.
