MPT turns down 3G licence applications

22 Jun 2006

The Ministry of Post and Telematics has rejected applications for 3G licences from VNPT and Viettel, saying that it still needs to consider the legal framework of the licences. Deputy general director of Viettel, Le Dang Dung, stated that he thought next generation licences would need to be issued by 2007, and that his company was ready to upgrade to 3G to meet market demand.
