Hung Yen, Vietnam Deploys 5G Network

A 5G network was inaugurated on 7 October in the northern province of Hung Yen. The launch of 5G services will help Hung Yen gradually finalise digital transformation and form a smart city model, according to the Deputy Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee, Nguyen Duy Hung. He said that the move will enable the province to comprehensively renovate administration management and improve production and business activities. It will usher in a new era of high-speed connectivity and change the way of living and working through the development of a safe and humane digital environment.

5G technology will provide seamless coverage, high data rate, low latency, and highly reliable communications. It will increase energy efficiency, spectrum efficiency, and network efficiency. Hung Yen is the 26th province out of 63 provinces and cities across the country covered by 5G services, which are being deployed by the state-run enterprise Viettel. The adoption of the 5G network is expected to enable Hung Yen to meet one of the goals set by the province’s Digital Transformation Action Programme, which is to cover 4G/5G mobile networks and have 90% of its population use smartphones by 2025. Hung said that the network will serve as a basic foundation for the province to further develop and become a key economic zone in the northern region.

In April, a 5G network and an intelligent operations centre (IOC) were unveiled in the Soc Trang province in the Mekong Delta. The Standing Vice Chairwoman of the provincial Party Committee said that by 2030, the province will have fundamentally and comprehensively reformed management and governance activities so that the local administration can operate more efficiently, effectively, and transparently.

As OpenGov Asia reported, Viettel completed the building of the 5G network in two months, which made Soc Trang the 17th province in Vietnam, and one of the first localities in the southern region, to access 5G services. The launch of 5G services is the first move to universalise the network here and an important step for Viettel to accelerate the building of digital infrastructure in the province. The city also inaugurated its IOC, which was developed with support from Viettel. The province aims to develop the local economy based on science, technology, and high-quality human resources.

The Secretary of the Municipal Party Committee informed that the IOC is one of the key facilities in the socio-economic development of Soc Trang city. It will help governance and task performance be more transparent and effective, and swifter, thus contributing to local smart city building and digital transformation.

Digital infrastructure is among the government’s top priorities. It has set a target to be among the top 30 nations with the most advanced and robust digital infrastructure by 2025. Vietnam’s next wave of socio-economic development will come from innovation, science, and technology, driven by the digital economy. A report from earlier this year showed that 5G services are projected to contribute 7.34% to Vietnam’s GDP growth in 2025.
