Vietnam has about 50 million internet users, 60% of its population. The world average is 47%. 

Starting with few dozen domains at .vn in 1997, Vietnam now has more than 400,000 domains whose names contain no Vietnamese special characters and 1 million domains in Vietnamese. 

Minister of Information and Communications Truong Minh Tuan said: “The internet has become widespread in Vietnam in the last 20 years. The rate of connection to the internet protocol version 6 in Vietnam ranks 2nd in ASEAN and 4th in Asia. We have supported broadband and cable service providers and implemented 4G to upgrade the internet infrastructure and diversify telecommunications and IT services.”

The internet has been accessible nationwide. The cable system is capable of providing services at hundreds of Mbps. Vietnam is upgrading its broadband cable infrastructure and promoting added services on this platform to keep pace with the 4.0 technology. 

Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam said: “The government has directed ministries and sectors to review all regulations and create optimal conditions for ICT development. It’s important to enable enterprises to use the IT infrastructure to develop their business. We should take advantage of IT and the economy to give the public better access to resources.”

Since 2010, Vietnam has been continuously among the 20 countries with the most internet users. Thanks to shrinking internet fees, the number of internet users in Vietnam is forecast to increase in the near future.
