Vinaphone, a subsidiary of Vietnam Posts and Telecommunications (VNPT) Group, has launched the first commercial 3G service in Vietnam with network infrastructure from Motorola Inc.'s Home & Networks Mobility business.

The new network provides advanced high-speed mobile data services in northern Vietnam including key areas of the capital city, Hanoi. The service launch builds on the success of Motorola's 2G network deployment for Vinaphone and will bring new media mobility experiences to Vinaphone's customers.

"We were committed to upgrading and delivering the 3G network for Vinaphone within just a few months of the contract being signed," said Ray Owen, general director of Motorola Vietnam, "With our advanced technology and the skill and dedication of our services team, the first phase of the project was completed in only two months. As a result, Vinaphone is the first operator to launch a commercial 3G service in Vietnam, making this another notable example of Motorola's capabilities in both 3G technology and services."

"Launching the first 3G service in Vietnam's most important cities, including the capital Hanoi, will help Vinaphone differentiate its services in a competitive market and capture more business opportunities in the growing mobile data communications market," he said.

"Vinaphone and Motorola have a long history of cooperation. The great teamwork and partnership demonstrated were critical to the successful network upgrade. The first-to-market 3G service in Vietnam allows us to bring high-speed mobile data services to subscribers ahead of competitors, enabling Vinaphone to strengthen its leading market position and increase return on investment," said Lam Hoang Vinh, vice president of VNPT and managing director of Vinaphone.
