On December 13, Viettel’s 5G mobile network opened in Da Nang, providing free 5G service with unlimited capacity.


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).
