At the event, the mobile internet speed reached 1.5-1.7 Gigabits per second, much faster than 4G and equivalent to the speed of commercial cables.

A representative of Viettel said that the group will pilot its 5G mobile service in HCMC and Hanoi, adding that it is working out solutions to calculate 5G mobile service charges when it is put into commercial service.

However, the mobile carrier may collect fees based on customers’ experience rather than the data volume they use.

Minister of Information and Communications Nguyen Manh Hung described the event as a significant milestone for Vietnam as it is one of the first countries in the world to successfully test the 5G service, after the United States, Australia, Japan and the Republic of Korea.

Viettel will cooperate with Sweden’s Ericsson Group during the pilot phase.
