Regulator receives 2 MVNO applications - Vietnam

VietNamNet Bridge has reported that FPT Telecom and Vietnam Multimedia Corporation (VTC) have both applied to the Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC) for permission to become MVNOs. The Deputy Minister of Information and Communications, Le Nam Thang, commented that MIC will consider both applications and if they meet the ministry’s criteria they will get the licenses.

The two firms are leading IT technology firms in Vietnam and would join 7 other MNOs which are largely state owned as well as another MVNO, Indochina Telecom, which was licensed back in August of this year.
