According to VietNamNet Bridge, the winners of each of Vietnam’s four 3G licences currently up for grabs will be announced in the second quarter of 2009. All seven existing 2G cellcos – MobiFone, VinaPhone, Viettel, EVN Telecom, SPT, Hanoi Telecom and GTel – are said to be competing for the four concessions. So-called exam files have been issued to each operator, with the companies having until early January 2009 to complete and return the documents to the Ministry of Information and Communications.
