Indochina Telecom has become the first MVNO in Vietnam, operating on the VinaPhone network.

The operator is initially introducing services for workers in industrial parks in nine provinces and cities, including Hanoi, the Leader reported.

Indochina Telecom has been attempting for over a decade to launch MVNO services in Vietnam, the report states. The company had initially failed to negotiate an MVNE deal with Viettel, but has secured one with VinaPhone, the mobile subsidiary of VNPT.

The company plans to introduce a variety of packages tailored to different groups and user segments, and will cooperate with Vietnam's mobile network operators to negotiate the best deals.

Indochina Telecom's introductory package provides unlimited under 20 minute within network and 30 minute out of network calls for 77,000 dong ($3.31) per month.
