Countdown to HT Mobile launch

27 Oct 2006

The commencement of services over Vietnam’s seventh wireless network, HT Mobile, moved a step closer with the inauguration of its main switching centre, and two customer service centres in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. HT Mobile is the wireless arm of state owned Hanoi Telecom, which offers international and long-distance telephony and VoIP services. Its CDMA2000 1x 800MHz network, due for launch next month, is being operated under a 15-year business cooperation contract (BCC) with Hong Kong’s Hutchison Telecommunications International Limited (HTIL).
