16 Sep 2009

Vietnam’s Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC) has announced that it has awarded a licence to CMC Telecom Infrastructure (CMC TI), a subsidiary of CMC Group. The concession allows the company to set up a network providing intra-region, inter-provincial and international fixed line and internet services, including VoIP telephony. CMC TI – which until now has been renting network facilities from Viettel, EVN Telecom and VNPT – says it will launch services over its own infrastructure in the first quarter of 2010. According to the country’s state news agency, the company was formed in September 2008 by the State Capital Investment Corporation (SCIC, 51%) and CMC Telecom.
