HA NOI (VNS)— Minister of Information and Communications Nguyen Bac Son said the ministry would conduct new regulations on subsidised telecom charges for poor households this year.
The northern Hoa Binh Province is one of the first poor provinces that wants financial assistance from the Government to develop telecom broadband services, and ensure broadband internet access for locals in remote areas and disadvantaged regions.
In a meeting with Minister Son, Hoa Binh province representatives said only some 68 out of 210 communes in the province have broadband services.
Many locals have no access to broadband service due to the complicated terrain.
Those living in communes with economic difficulties, along with those living in 23 communes near the Da river reservoir also have no broadband services. — VNS
