Pacnet arrives in Vietnam

15 Jun 2009

Asian telecoms service provider Pacnet has partnered with Vietnamese telco and ISP FPT Telecom to launch its first Point-of-Presence (PoP) in Vietnam, with the aim of enhancing network connectivity in the country. ‘Vietnam continues to attract large foreign investments from countries including China, the US and Singapore, which will fuel stronger demand for network connectivity in Vietnam,’ said Bill Barney, CEO of Pacnet, adding, ‘Our latest infrastructure expansion in Vietnam reflects our confidence in its economy and will enable us to support the country’s growing bandwidth requirements.’ Pacnet’s Ho Chi Minh City-based PoP will also enable the company to deliver its global network connectivity solutions to Cambodia and Laos. The company plans to expand its presence to other cities in Vietnam over the next twelve months, and is exploring the possibility of landing its EAC-C2C submarine cable in the country to provide access to Asia’s highest capacity undersea network.
