Viet Nam Roaming Experience


Recommended Posts

Roaming in Viet Nam has been interesting to say the least. I'm not sure whether its the fact I'm on the Samsung Beta (stupid move on my part) or it's a network issue but sometimes my phone just won't connect to the network without a couple of restarts. As a result, it will sometimes hop between carriers after a restart. So far, I've roamed on three of the four carriers (% of time on each): Viettel (70%), VinaPhone (25%), and MobiPhone(5%). LTE coverage has been nearly ubiquitous, even in rural areas. I literally only legitamtely lost LTE coverage once and that was in the middle of the mountains in the highlands near Da Lat where it dropped down to 3G. I haven't done a speed test yet to conserve data but one nice thing is my data counter reset in the middle of this trip, so I've had more than enough data to cover my needs.

Samsung just responded to my error report and stated this would be fixed in the third beta. So clearly, this is a beta issue.

    • T-Mobile Will Soon Prevent Early Payoff Of Phones Receiving Bill Credits If you finance a phone with T-Mobile it will remain locked until paid off but now you won't be able to pay off early. If you don't currently purchase your phones from the manufacturer here is another reason it might be a good idea.
    • Was in Red Hook again and I swear there are more Link5G sites as there are Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T small cells combined in the entire neighborhood. It seemed like every other street I turned down had one installed. Hopefully carriers will start hopping on them soon. Seems like a lot of effort to go through for no one to use them.  — — — — — T-Mobile converted the Sprint site on top of NYU Langone Brooklyn in Sunset Park. I first mapped one sector of it back in November 2023 but I thought it was a small cell so I never pinned it but I ran into another sector today which caught me off guard. I'm unable to find a permit for the conversion so it's definitely a surprise. There's another T-Mobile site 1 block away that T-Mobile initially installed back in 2019 so I'm kinda surprised they're keeping both considering the Sprint conversion is on a much taller building and could potentially provide much better coverage to the entire area.  — — — — —  Old permit for this new install expired but a new one was recently issued. It's gonna be similar to the site at 360 Forman St in Brooklyn Heights. Permit calls for only 3 antennas to be installed so I'm assuming it gonna be Band 2/41/66 and n25/41 only which is a bit of a downgrade from the now decommissioned full build that was on 871 7th Ave but in it's current state the nearest macro is a few blocks away and a small cell at Broadway and 55th is doing a lot of heavy lifting in the area so anything helps.  
    • Still not seeing any ULS postings for pending T-Mobile UScellular merger in Dane county Wisconsin.
    • Came across another Crown Castle Solutions multi-tenant oDAS node in Brooklyn. Located at 40.7002286, -73.9612666. Nothing on T-Mobile or AT&T so I'm assuming these are all Verizon nodes that Crown Castle is anticipating another carrier will hop on down the line.
    • Same with factory unlocked
