In addition, ADC is also a key national-level infrastructure project, not only to ensure the capacity to develop the digital technology potential, making an important contribution to the country’s socio-economic development but also to guarantee the national communications security.
Recently, Viettel Group has completed the construction of the Cable Landing Station of ADC in Quy Nhon, making this city one of the three major telecommunication gateways of Vietnam when this cable is put into operation, along with Da Nang and Vung Tau. Equipped with the most up-to-date technology and equipment, allowing big international data transmission, we believe that Quy Nhon will play a key and important role in the national information network. This will be a great driving force to promote the development of telecommunication infrastructure and technology not only in Quy Nhon but also in all the neighboring cities/provinces.
