The fixed broadband access has been built on the back of an extensive Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) network, with the more recent focus being on fibre-based services. Subscriber growth in fibre continues to be strong.

Fixed broadband penetration in Vietnam remains low mainly due to a limited number of fixed lines and the dominance of the mobile platform. However, the market has grown strongly over the past five years driven by the FTTH market. Over the next five years to 2023 strong growth is expected to continue driven by rising fixed line penetration, in particular the rollout of fibre access.

During 2018 the government announced its intention to enact a new Resolution on Digital Government Development Plan for 2018-2020 toward 2025. In addition, a National Board of E-Government Review, was be established to monitor and evaluate e-government development in Vietnam.

The Urban Development Department is proposing a plan to develop a smart city by 2025 with a vision to 2030. The government has also launched policies to prioritise the development of digital industry, smart tourism, smart agriculture and telecommunication infrastructure.

Ho Chi Minh City is set to become the first smart city in Vietnam, focusing on cloud computing infrastructure, big data, building data centers and security-monitoring centers.

Hanoi aims to be a smart city by 2030 and focuses on four major sectors: healthcare, education, transport, and tourism.

Key developments:

  • VNPT-Vinaphone completed the conversion of its fixed network from copper to fibre-optic access.
  • Fibre-based broadband (FttH) subscribers have been growing rapidly.
  • Over the next five years to 2023 strong growth is expected to continue in the fixed broadband market.
