VGP - In mid-August, FPT Telecom and PPCM Global (a branch of Hong Kong's leading telecommunication services provider) officially inked a deal on network connection.

Based on the deal, PCCW Global can supply its services at different levels to Vietnamese customers in order to maximize the popularization of bandwidth and multi-protocol label switching (MPLS).

In the time to come, apart from the available services (local and trans-provincial data transfer, Internet subscription), FPT Telecom will be ready to provide high-standard services, such as international channel subscription, international virtual private network, and global Internet Protocol.    

A senior official of FPT Telecom revealed that the bilateral strategic cooperation will help the two companies make use of their respective strength. At the same time, customers have more chances to access to high-quality reliable and high-security services in the global network.  

PCCW Global CEO Bret Rehart was pleasant that his company managed to penetrate into Việt Nam's market through FPT Telecom. Accordingly, PCCW Global is allowed to deliver a network management service between Việt Nam and the company’s other member states.

FPT Telecom was founded in 1997, under the Corporation for Financing and Promoting Technology. Accounting for 33% of the domestic share market with around over 300,000 Internet subscribers, it is among the four biggest Internet providers in Việt Nam. Additionally, it is a leading provider in terms of telecommunications and online services.

PCCW Global, the premier provider of telecommunications in Hong Kong, possesses a global high-speed cable network and infrastructure that span 800 cities in more than 70 countries, especially in Asia. PCCW Global offers a series of digital services through four channels: non-variable line, Internet broadband, television and mobile phones.
