According to statistics of the Viet Nam Telecommunications Authority (Ministry of Information and Communications), by the end of 2021, Vietnam has 70.9 million mobile broadband subscribers (accounting for 57.23% of the total number of mobile subscribers), increasing 4% compared to 2020; The rate of using mobile broadband is 71/100 people, the rate of using fixed broadband is 19/100 people; The percentage of households with fixed broadband subscriptions in December 2021 was 65%; The number of subscribers to broadband internet access was 89.75 million, of which 70.96 million are mobile broadband subscribers and 18.80 million are fixed broadband subscribers; Telecommunications service revenue, in general, has increased steadily, particularly, revenue in December 2021 reached 11.17 trillion VND while revenue in December 2020 reached only 10.4 trillion VND. Although the trend of developing fixed broadband services is inevitable to serve the digital transformation in Vietnam in general as well as the increase in people’s demand for internet use in particular, the pressure on telecommunications revenue is still very high. Communication is a difficult problem. The Average Revenue Per User (ARPU) of fixed broadband subscribers in 10 months of 2021 was only about 137,000 VND (approximately 6 USD), decreased by 8% compared to 2020 (149,000 VND). Among nearly 18 million fibre-optic cable subscribers in Vietnam, up to 83% use packages with speeds below 100Mbps, resulting in Vietnam’s fibre optic cable speed being still much lower than some countries in the region. In 2022, the Viet Nam Telecommunications Authority (Ministry of Information and Communications) also set a goal of implementing mobile broadband network coverage with speeds above 1Gb to industrial sectors and high-tech zones; 100% of adults have a smartphone; 75% of households have FTTH, 85% mobile broadband subscribers/100 people.

Internationally, according to a report by IDTechEx, by the end of 2032, revenue from mobile services will reach about 800 billion USD. This forecast is built on extensive analysis of primary and secondary data, combined with careful consideration of market drivers, constraints, and user activities. According to Statista, by 2022, the United States holds more than 36% of the global market share in information and communication technology (ICT). With a market share of 16%, the EU is the second, followed by China with 12%. In addition, it is forecast that the ICT market will reach more than 6 trillion USD in 2021 and nearly 7 trillion USD in 2030. In modern society, constant growth is another reminder of how popular and important technology has become. Over the next few years, traditional technology spending will be driven primarily by big data and analytics, mobile, social media, and cloud computing.

However, in order to expand the telecommunications market and effectively exploit the telecommunications platform to contribute to the promotion of the digital economy and digital society, there are still many challenges, both in terms of infrastructure and digital content. Infrastructure challenges such as frequency planning, infrastructure investment, technology deployment… Digital content challenges such as IoT (Internet of Things – Internet of Things) applications, business models operating in Digital economy, digital social model… These are also the key topics that the World Mobile Broadband & ICT Summit 2022 is aiming for.
