Internet connection set up for online learning in eight localities

Three leading telecom services providers of Viettel, VNPT and MobiFone from September 12 to 30 completed setting up Internet connection in eight provinces and cities nationwide to facilitate online teaching and learning.

The installation was carried out in 283 locations across the eight localities of Hanoi capital; Da Nang, Khanh Hoa and Phu Yen in the central region; and Binh Phuoc, Dong Thap, Can Tho, and Hau Giang in the south.

In implementing the Prime Minister's Decree on promoting safe teaching programme and ensuring education quality amid the COVID-19 pandemic, together with a programme to provide Internet connection and computers for needy students, the Ministry of Information and Communications has asked the telecom services providers to review locations with underqualified Internet connection for students’ online learning and promptly improve the situation.

The work will be continued within this year to ensure connection quality serving online learning as well as infrastructure for the country’s digital economy development./.
