Vietnam’s seventh cellular network, HT Mobile, has launched. Canadian vendor Nortel has built the CDMA2000 network, which will be operated under a 15-year business cooperation contract (BCC) between Hutchison Telecom and The Hanoi Telecom Joint Stock Company (Hanoi Telecom). The network offers 1xEV-DO capability in some metropolitan areas, and its operators are hoping to win a 20% share of the mobile market within three years. It expects to sign up 2.9 million subscribers by 2017.
