Viettel and Ericsson demonstrated the first 5G connection in Vietnam. The speed test result shows Viettel's 5G connection, which uses Ericsson products and test devices, runs at 1.5-1.7 Gbps. The connection uses the 3.7-3.8Ghz (C-Band) and 27.5-28.5 Ghz (mmWave) frequency. In April, Viettel installed its first trial 5G service base-transceiver stations (BTS) in Vietnam. The first 5G BTS was installed at Viettel's building in Hoan Kiem District. The other two BTSs are installed at No 19 Duy Tan and at its headquarters at 1 Tran Huu Duc in Hanoi.
