HA NOI (VNS) — The Ha Noi Department of Information and Communications has asked local telecom providers to disconnect 40 illegal phone numbers that kept annoying people by sending classified advertisements.

The illegal advertisements comprise promotions of apartments, villas, loans and spring flower markets to Internet and cable TV installation services. — VNS
