The government-owned Vietnam Posts and Telecommunications Group (VNPT) has successfully tested its VinaPhone 5G network in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.

According to a press release, test results have shown that the VinaPhone5G network achieved a download throughput of more than 2.2 Gbps, 10 times faster than the 4G network and latency of almost zero.

These results are close to the world’s 5G standards and the best 5G test results ever achieved in Vietnam.

To secure 5G testing results, VNPT cooperated with the world’s leading 5G equipment manufacturers to enable advanced features and optimise the network structure.

The speed of VinaPhone 5G network has been tested in services requiring high broadband speed, low latency such as virtual reality interaction (AR/VR), Cloud Game (an online game), 8K videos, etc.

According to a VNPT representative, the VinaPhone 5G network will not only provide high-speed data but also helps create a digital ecosystem for users and e-government platforms, smart cities, among others.

The country’s telecommunications sector has been witnessing growth since the COVID-19 pandemic hit. A press statement released earlier claimed that technology firms and telcos are believed to be doing well thanks to the higher demand for technological solutions to support the new work-from-home regime.

However, they also have to deal with several challenges during this difficult period, the release added.

Software engineers at FPT Group, the largest Vietnamese IT corporation, said the epidemic has not affected their income, but they have had to work harder.

FPT has made every effort to ensure jobs for its 36,000 workers. The FPT president said that Vietnam has been doing very well in the prevention and fighting against COVID-19. While India and China, the two largest software export centres of the world, are meeting difficulties in their efforts to control the epidemic, FPT will try to find more clients and take more orders to get money to pay workers.

Viettel has also been hit by COVID-19, but it has not thought of laying off workers. President of CMC said despite the epidemic, the group will not sack workers.

In the context of the epidemic escalation, MobiFone, one of the three largest mobile network operators, predicted a decrease of VN 6.684 trillion in revenue and VN 1.526 trillion in profit compared with the plan.

MobiFone also affirmed it will not lay off workers, though it may have to think of cutting salaries if the epidemic lasts a long time. In principle, salaries for workers are defined based on their business results.

As for VNPT, the corporation estimated the decrease of VND 6.161 trillion in revenue and VND 817 billion in profit. Like MobiFone, it will maintain the current staff, according to VNPT’s deputy CEO Do Dung Thai.

With the new home-quarantined regime, businesses have to depend on online tools to deal with their workload. The number of downloads for video conferencing applications has increased as much as five times against early this year, according to the latest data from an analytics platform for tech developers and investors.
