Unitel launches 4G service in Laos

VIENTIANE (Biz Hub) — Star Telecom, a joint venture between Viettel Global Joint Stock Company of Viet Nam and Lao Asia Telecom of Laos, has officially launched its 4G service on its Unitel network.

The launch took place on June 23 in Vientiane.

At first, the firm will roll out the service in four major cities and provinces of Laos: Vientiane, Savannakhet, Luang Prabang and Champasak.

The new service is said to provide customers with many facilities, such as watching videos on YouTube in high definition, watching TV online and downloading data at high speed.

Speaking at the launch ceremony, Star Telecom Deputy General Director Kongphet Nhongvongsitthi said the telecom service had changed significantly, using various new technologies, and the launch of 4G service was intended to catch up with the latest global trends.

He said Unitel was the first and only mobile operator in Laos offering six tariff packages for 4G service with prices equivalent to 3G service.

At the moment, Unitel tops the Laos telecom market with 2.5 million subscribers. With 4,000 base transceiver stations, the network covers 95 per cent of Laos. — VNS
