VNPT and Viettel continue connection dispute

10 Jan 2006

State-run operator Vietnam Post and Telecommunications Corporation (VNPT) and rival Viettel are blaming each other for service interruptions over their networks. Regulator, the Ministry of Posts and Telematics (MPT), has requested that both sides ‘self-check’ the quality of their networks and take responsibility for their own service interruptions.

Meanwhile VNPT is set to change its name to Vietnam Post and Telecommunications Group by the end of this month. The telco will continue its operations throughout the name change.
