(Country)- To promote the speed of 5G usage in Vietnam, network infrastructure, terminals and content-making units must cooperate more and more closely. In addition, in need of government support in scaling up 5G, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) develop more 5G-enabled devices and are widely distributed across the country.
On August 26, Qualcomm Technologies and Samsung gathered representatives of stakeholders to promote the common goal of developing a 5G mobile ecosystem in Vietnam. The event was attended by the Ministry of Information and Communications, Samsung, Qualcomm Technologies, TikTok and telecom operators Viettel, Mobifone, VNPT Technology.
In addition to the participation of telecommunications carriers that can help 5G reach more regions in the country, building a 5G mobile ecosystem also needs the support of the Government in expanding the scale of 5G. , original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) develop more 5G-enabled devices and are widely distributed across the country.
Mr. Nguyen Phong Nha – Deputy Director, Department of Telecommunications, Ministry of Information and Communications said: ” Vietnam aims to soon cover 5G to high-tech parks, research centers and industrial parks in need. use 5G as soon as the license is issued and by 2025, basically the population will be covered with 5G. By 2030, 100% of the population will have 5G coverage. With the availability of broadband telecommunications infrastructure via fiber optic and mobile 5G technology will be the premise for all industries and sectors in the economy to carry out digital transformation, ready for the Industrial Revolution 4.0.

In the past 2 years, Vietnamese mobile businesses have also deployed 5G trials in 40 provinces/cities to evaluate technical aspects and business plans. Fiber optic infrastructure is deployed to 100% of villages. This is an important transmission infrastructure for the rapid deployment of 5G networks. At the same time, the legal framework related to frequency spectrum service quality is also urgently being completed.
Viettel’s representative said that in order for 5G to explode sooner and more widely, network infrastructure, terminals and content makers must have closer cooperation to promote the speed of use. use 5G in Vietnam.
Despite the policies that have been set, many partners in the ecosystem have been investing in 5G deployment in the country as well as developing products that take advantage of the benefits of 5G technology, Qualcomm and Samsung believe that the Closer cooperation among all stakeholders will support the promotion of 5G across the country.
