As a large number of customers would move from big cities to the SouthWestern region, Central region and Northern delta, therefore, demand would be doubled or tripled. The operator will increase capacity on its networks, expand coverage areas and increase the number of base transceiver stations (BTS) and mobile broadcast vehicles.
Especially, after 10 months of operation, Viettel 4G services accounted for 50% network flows.
