The network has led its peers in eight technical criteria and its operational parameters have been even better than the standards set by the MoIC.

Viettel has always considered the data network as the core of all services and products.

Particularly, the network’s successful access rate reaches 100 percent (MoIC’s required standard is 90 percent and above); its readiness index is 99.98 percent (MoIC’s standard is from 95 percent onward) and the delay time is 1.33 second (MoIC’s standard is 10 seconds or less). Notably, the network’s average download speed is 15.27 Mb per second.

The survey was conducted independently and objectively in the provinces of Lang Son, Thai Nguyen, Quang Tri, Quang Binh, Ben Tre, and Tien Giang from June 14 to 25. The final results were released at website of the Department of Telecommunications in October 2018.

According to Ha Minh Tuan, Deputy Director of Viettel Network, the group has always considered the data network as the core of all services and products, thus, it has invested mainly in the network infrastructure and expanded coverage to the whole country since its early days. The official said that the group also applied modern technologies to probe customers’ experiences in order to advance the network’s access to every single subscriber.

The metering methods of the Department of Telecommunications followed the national technical regulations on the quality of the Internet access service based on the International Mobile Telecommunications for the year 2000 (IMT-2000).

Accordingly, the network’s quality was checked inside buildings and vehicles, at fixed positions and on moving vehicles. The Department of Telecommunications also set the check time from 7:00 am to 10:00pm every day, and the average speeds of inspected vehicles in urban and suburban areas are 30km per hour and 40km per hour, respectively.

Previously, the Speedtest, a free Internet speed test company, revealed that Viettel is the highest speed mobile network in Vietnam with the download speed of 28.22Mbps and the upload speed of 13.56Mbps.
