VNPT cuts roaming charges

27 Oct 2006

Vinaphone and Mobifone, the wireless networks owned by Vietnam Post and Telecoms, the wireline incumbent, have dropped their international roaming (IR) charges from USD0.37 to USD0.25 per minute for calls made within Vietnam. The move is specifically to encourage foreign subscribers to use the IR service, particularly during the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Summit 2006, being hosted in Hanoi in November.
