CDMA customer base to grow and grow

31 Jan 2008

Local newspaper Pioneer reports that the number of CDMA-based mobile phone users in Vietnam grew to six million by the end of 2007, up from only 1.9 million a year ago. The two largest cellcos with CDMA networks, S-Fone and EVN Telecom (formerly VP Telecom) are expected to grow their subscriber bases to a total of 10.5 million by the end of 2008 and to 15.5 million by end-2009. CDMA remains a reasonable way behind GSM use in the country: at the end of 2007 Viettel, MobiFone and Vinaphone accounted for approximately 22 milion customers on their GSM networks.
