From July 1, 2022, 5G networks of MobiFone, VinaPhone and Viettel must meet the standards of download speed (download), upload (upload), average delay (ping) time,… some other standards.
Recently, the Ministry of Information and Communications (TT&TT) has issued a circular on the National Technical Regulation on the quality of Internet access services on the 5G terrestrial mobile telecommunications network (QCVN 126: 2021/BTTTT). This Circular takes effect from July 1, 2022 with many notable contents, especially in terms of download speed (download), upload (upload) and delay time (ping). ..
Vietnam is one of the first countries in the world to test commercial 5G networks soon.
Accordingly, the speed download on average with a standard 5G network should be 100Mbps; upload speed upload average right 30Mbps. As for download parameters, the Ministry of Information and Communications has added regulations that at least 95% of the test samples must have a download speed of ≥ 30Mbps.
Besides, ping right service access average 50ms, the service failure rate must be ≤ 5%. The simulation method is regulated by the Ministry of Information and Communications as follows: The minimum number of measured samples is 1,500 samples, distributed for indoor and outdoor test conditions at fixed locations and mobile outdoor.
For download and upload, will simulate downloading/uploading data files from/to the server for testing, with the minimum number of data file samples of 1,500. The time interval to take a measurement sample is from 10 – 30 seconds.

With that, customer support service must also meet the following criteria: Telephone customer support is available 24 hours a day; At least 80% of calls to the customer support service take over the circuit successfully, send a connection request to the agent, and receive a response from the agent within 60 seconds.
In addition, the Ministry of Information and Communications also stipulates a number of standards for the minimum time between two consecutive measurements, the size of the data file, the transmission protocol, the service test server, etc.
The Ministry of Information and Communications has licensed 5G network testing for Viettel, VNPT and MobiFone in a number of provinces and cities. Enterprises are licensed to test for internal subscribers to evaluate technical features and ability to deploy telecommunications infrastructure using new technologies.
On May 10, 2019, Military Industry and Telecommunications Group (Viettel) made the first connection on a 5G mobile network in Vietnam. At the event, Viettel’s 5G mobile network connection speed with terminals reached 1.5 – 1.7Gbps. Recently, in September 2021, they announced a leap forward with speeds of more than 4.7Gbps in the lab.
By March 2020, MobiFone Telecommunications Corporation successfully tested 5G networks in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Da Nang and Hai Phong. The testing process is carried out by MobiFone with services that require super speed such as 3D calls, online games, interactive virtual reality applications (AR, VR),… According to MobiFone’s announcement, the speed The data download rate is nearly 2Gbps.
Next, in April 2020, VNPT announced officially successfully testing VinaPhone 5G network in 2 cities licensed by the Ministry of Information and Communications, Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. The test results of VinaPhone 5G network reached more than 2.2Gbps, which is 10 times faster than 4G network.
This speed is 40 times higher than 4G speed and more than 2 times the existing 5G speed.
