HA NOI (VNS) — The Viet Nam Telecom Services Company (Vinaphone) has announced new rates for international roaming services as of October with big reductions in voice call and data transmission charges.
The reductions are the result of the company's efforts to boost cooperation with foreign service suppliers, Vinaphone Deputy Director Ho Duc Thang said.
Charges of voice calls from 55 countries to Viet Nam have been reduced remarkably, with the largest cut of 62 per cent applied to calls made from Central Asian countries, like Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan.
At the same time, fees for receiving calls from Viet Nam decrease by 44 per cent for 29 countries.
Sending text messages to Viet Nam are also cheaper in 104 countries.
In addition, the charges for voice calls from Japan, Thailand, China, the Republic of Korea and Singapore to Viet Nam or to a third country have been reduced by as much as 53 per cent compared to the previous levels as these countries are popular destinations for Vietnamese people.
Vinaphone also lowered the charge on internet use for its customers when travelling in 29 countries, with the highest cut of 40 per cent being applied in China and Japan.— VNS
