Timor Leste (VNA) – Telemor, Viettel’s subsidiary in Timor Leste, has expanded quickly after its entry in 2013 and now has 470,000 users among the country’s population of 1.2 million. 

The company has built an infrastructure network across 95 percent of Timor-Leste’s area, and opened over 3,000 points of transactions. 

In October 2015 the company won the “Fastest Growing Company of the Year in Asia, Australia and New Zealand” category of the International Business Awards 2015 (IBA)- the Stevie Awards. 

Former Prime Minister of Timor Leste Xanana Gusmao has hailed Telemor as a symbol of the cooperation and friendship between the country and Vietnam. 

General Director of Telemor, Nguyen Canh Hoa said the high quality and low cost of services as well as support of local people who have special sentiment for Vietnam has helped the company to have such significant growth.

The military-run telecom group Viettel has been operating in nine markets across Asia, Africa and America, where it has helped build infrastructure and provided telecommunications services to a total customer reach of more than 175 million.

 In some of the markets, such as Cambodia (through Metfone) and Mozambique (through Movitel), the company is a market leader in terms of subscribers, revenue and infrastructure.-VNA
