Thailand’s ATM Network Offline, Mobile Banking Affected

Posted on August 30th, 2018 in Around the World by Tom Whitbread

Queues at every ATM this morning across Thailand as a nationwide outage of the cash network, made people have all the more reason to use Crypto.

All banks are effected including Kasikorn Bank, Siam and Krung Thai.

Customer call centres are also offline at time of writing. 

Thai Mobile Banking Services Offline

Customer service staff we enquired with at several different branches, had no answer as to why or when the network would be restored, forcing customers to use the branches withdrawal desk and making many drivers stranded at fuel stations across the kingdom as no transactions could be issued.

While people wait for a friend or relative to bring them some cash to get home, the need for a decentralised solution is ever more apparent.

Update: Thai media is reporting after approximately 4 hours downtime, the problem has now been fixed, and stemmed from a core banking provider, customers can now contact Call centers for more information (Source: https://today.line.me/TH/pc/article/aMM0mP?utm_source=copyshare)
