AIS has been listed in the SET Index on the Thai stock exchange since 1991 . In June 1992, AIS bought Shinawatra Paging. From 2002 to 2006 AIS was led by the future Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra .

AIS is majority owned by the Singaporean state holding Temasek . 40.5% of the shares are held by INTOUCH (formerly Shin Corporation), which has been the Thai subsidiary of Temasek since it was sold by the Shinawatra family in 2006.
