5G speed in Da Nang is recorded at an average of 500 Mbps.


The areas covered by the 5G network include Bach Dang Road, the Da Nang City Administration Center, Da Nang City Party Committee, Da Nang Museum, General Science Library, Han Market, Dragon Bridge, and Museum of Cham Sculpture.

This is a pilot 5G network with cooperation between Viettel and Samsung to enhance network quality and allow users to fully experience the benefits of a 5G network. Samsung's 64T64R 5G Massive MIMO antenna used in the test is the most modern 5G technology available today.

The test in Da Nang shows that the measured 5G speed can be up to 1,300 Mbps. The average 5G speed reached 500 Mbps, 2.8 times higher than the average 5G speed of the world (according to Opensignal’s statistics).

Vietnamobile has new CEO


Newly-appointed CEO of Vietnamobile Raymond Ho.


Raymond Ho has been appointed CEO of Vietnamobile, replacing Christina Hui.

In early 2019, Elizabeth Fong, known as the "steel woman", officially left the position of CEO of Vietnamobile after seven years. She was replaced by Christina Hui, a representative from the Hutchison Group.

There has been no public statement from the carrier about 5G. However, in the coming time, Vietnamobile may have to face a life-or-death choice of whether to spend money on 5G as voice and SMS services are declining.

According to the Department of Telecommunications of the Ministry of Information and Communications, after more than 3 years providing MNP services, Vietnamobile has lost more than 1 million subscribers and taken nearly 25,000 subscribers from other networks. Currently, the main product of this network operator is low-cost 4G packages aimed at young customers and low-income users.
