29 May 2009

Chinese equipment vendor Huawei has been selected by Vietnamese military-owned telco Viettel to build the operator’s W-CDMA/HSPA network, reports VNBusinessNews. The vendor will construct more than 2,000 base stations in southern Vietnam. According to CommsUpdate, the company was awarded a licence to operate 3G services by the Ministry of Information and Communication (MIC) in April 2009, along with Vinaphone, MobiFone and a consortium between EVN Telecom and Hanoi Telecom, which will build and develop a 3G network together. The quartet were given three months to develop third-generation wireless services under the 15-year licences.
