HANOI, Vietnam -- Motorola, Inc. (NYSE:MOT) today announced that Vinaphone, a subsidiary of Viet Nam Posts and Telecommunications (VNPT) Group, has launched the first commercial 3G service in Viet Nam with network infrastructure from Motorola’s Home & Networks Mobility business. The network was upgraded in record time, just two months after the contract was awarded in August, demonstrating Motorola’s leadership in technology and services and reinforcing Vinaphone’s position as a leading operator in the country.

The new network provides advanced high-speed mobile data services in northern Viet Nam including key areas of the capital city, Hanoi. The service launch builds on the success of Motorola’s 2G network deployment for Vinaphone and will bring new media mobility experiences to Vinaphone’s customers.

“We were committed to upgrading and delivering the 3G network for Vinaphone within just a few months of the contract being signed,” said Dr. Ray Owen, general director of Motorola Viet Nam, “With our advanced technology and the skill and dedication of our services team, the first phase of the project was completed in only two months. As a result, Vinaphone is the first operator to launch a commercial 3G service in Viet Nam, making this another notable example of Motorola’s capabilities in both 3G technology and services.”
