Viettel awarded WiMAX licence

8 Mar 2006

Vietnam’s Ministry of Posts and Telematics (MPT) has awarded the country’s fourth WiMAX licence to military-owned operator Viettel. Last month the regulator granted concessions to Vietnam Posts and Telecommunications Corporation (VNPT), The Corporation for Financing and Promoting Technology (FPT) and Vietnam Television, Technology, Investment and Development Company (VTC). The four operators will launch a pilot project this year.
