Viettel Group has launched Vietnam’s first 5G commercial trial with 5G services available to subscribers after a period of technical tests.
Subscribers with 5G phones can test the service without SIM card upgrade in the downtown of Hoan Kiem District, Ba Dinh District and Hai Ba Trung District in Hanoi. They can enjoy free unlimited 5G data to experience the 10x speed bump and 10x less latency.
Based on non-standalone access (NSA) technology, Viettel’s 5G network reaches 1.2 to 1.5Gbps, enabling a 90-minute HD movie to be downloaded in just 30 seconds. It is also great for AR/VR applications such as virtual travel and virtual shopping.
After Hanoi, Viettel will continue to expand the 5G network for early 5G commercial test in Da Nang and Ho Chi Minh.
