Authorities call for oversight of fraudulent retail websites To tap the potential of online trade, stricter penalties should be imposed on websites that engage in fraud, a government source was quoted as saying in the Nguoi Lao Dong (Labourer) newpaper. In recent years, improved legal regulations for online trade have helped reduce online trade fraud, but fraudulent practices continue, mostly due to the poor management of several agencies, according to the source. "The online shopping model would develop strongly in Viet Nam if authorised agencies impose drastic measures against fraudulent prices," Tran Thanh Hung, an owner of one e-commerce website, said.

VietNamNet Bridge - The 4G standard Viettel now applies in its trial run is LTE-A, with download speed of 300 Mbps, which is applied in many developed countries. The military telecom group Viettel is now testing 4G in Vung Tau City which, in theory, has the download speed of 300 Mbps, equivalent to Category 6 LTE (Cat 6), the LTE-A commonly used in developed countries. They began using LTE-A technology with 300 Mbps speed not that long ago. In South Korea, which is believed to have the largest coverage in the world (97 percent), for example, LTE-A technology was introduced for the first time in July 2013 by SK Telecom. However, the speed in theory then was 150 Mbps only (Cat 4). Only since 2014 did the network operator begin commercializing the Cat 6 standard with the 300 Mbps speed. Later, 300 Mbps was considered the standard for LTE-A. In fact, it is not too difficult to deploy high speed LTE-A, or 4G+. Thieu Phuong Nam, director of Qualcomm Indochina said that telecom … [Read more...] about How speedy is Vietnam’s 4G in comparison with the rest of the world?
