Vietnam’s fixed line market has seen a significant decline after peaking in 2009, according to Reportbuyer, a leading industry intelligence solution that provides all market research reports from top publishers. Market penetration fell from 20.1 per cent in 2009 to 10.5 per cent in 2012 and 5.7 per cent in 2016.
Having come late to the internet, meanwhile, Vietnam is finally embracing the higher access speeds offered by various broadband platforms.
Although there has been a surge in subscriber numbers, fixed broadband remains a relatively small but expanding market segment.
Most significantly, the arrival of mobile broadband has seen widespread access to faster internet speeds.
