Troubles around mobile number portability (MNP) during the past four months raise the question whether mobile operators are trying to prevent customers from using other mobile services. Could mobile operators be creating difficulties to keep subscribers? Source: tuoitre.vn According to the Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC), the conditions for using MNP include subscribers’ authenticated information, not having an ongoing complaint or dispute with the operator, and not breaching a commitment to the mobile operators, and others.

Once Vietnamese mobile network operators deploy 4G networks, they will have to compete not only in terms of downloading and uploading speed but also content services in order to gain and retain customers. At the Vietnam-Korea LTE Vision Workshop co-held this morning by the Vietnamese Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC) and the South Korean Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning, Jin-Hyo Park, senior vice president, head of SK Telecom’s network R&D centre, said Vietnamese mobile network operators had to diversify their services to compete. “If operators only strive to provide the highest speed, they cannot get customers.
