VNPT to halt dial-up service

20 Jun 2012

State-owned national PTO Vietnam Post and Telecommunications (VNPT) will stop providing dial-up internet access next month, due to falling demand for the service. Tuoitrenews reports that VNPT has obtained approval from the Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC) to end the service from 15 July 2012, and the operator will focus on the provision of its fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) ‘FiberVNN’ and ADSL ‘MegaVNN’ broadband internet services.
