Hung Yen (VNA) – A 5G network was inaugurated on October 7 in the northern province of Hung Yen.

Nguyen Duy Hung, Deputy Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee, said the launch of 5G services will help Hung Yen gradually finalise digital transformation and form a smart city model, thereby comprehensively renovating management of the administration, production and business activities of enterprises, people's way of living and working to develop a safe and humane digital environment.

Hung Yen is the 26th among the 63 provinces and cities across the country covered by Viettel’s 5G services.
