Viettel, the military-run telecom company of Vietnam, officially launched the third generation (3G) technology network on Thursday, becoming the third 3G provider in the country after Vinaphone and Mobiphone.

With the new technology, Viettel will provide three services including video call, mobile internet and seven other value-added services.

Deputy General Director of Viettel Tong Viet Trung said that the company's 3G network has covered 63 localities nationwide. It is expected that the company's market share would be upbeat because of 3G launching which would bring more values to providers as well as customers.

Up to now, the company has completed construction of 8,000 3G base transceiver stations. The number of base transceiver stations is expected to be 20,000 by the end of this year.

In 2009, Viettel's total revenue reached 60 trillion Vietnamese dong (about three billion U.S. dollars), a year-on-year increase of 80 percent, according to the company's figures.
