HÀ NỘI — Minister of Information and Communications Trương Minh Tuấn on Tuesday signed a licence allowing Gtel Mobile Joint Stock Company (Gtel Mobile) to provide 4G telecommunication service in Việt Nam.
This brings the number of operators receiving licences for 4G service to four.
Like the three major network operators -- Viettel, VNPT and MobiFone -- Gtel will deploy 4G telecom service on 1800 MHz, which was previously used for the 2G service.
According to the ministry’s Telecommunications Department, responsibilities of the network provider in terms of coverage range, quality and service fees will be stipulated clearly in the licence to ensure rights of users and feasibility of implementation.
Gtel Mobile was founded in July 2008 as a joint venture between Global Telecommunication Corporation and Russia’s VimpelCom. — VNS
