    Telecommunications in Vietnam is, like much of the rest of the country, congested.

    So, how is it that a developing country like Vietnam has faster broadband than an allegedly far more technologically-advanced country like Australia?
    Fancy being a electronics technician in Vietnam?

    Hi
    from here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Govern...roadband_Index
    quote: The Government Broadband Index (gBBi) is a report compiled by the Economist Intelligence Unit that assesses countries on the basis of government planning, as opposed to current broadband capability. With ambitious targets for both the speed and coverage of next-generation broadband networks, the developed countries of East Asia scored highest in the Economist Intelligence Unit's first government broadband index.

    According to the index Greece is the worst-performing country measured, owing to its relatively low coverage target and drawn-out deployment schedule. Greece also suffers due to the considerable size of its public-funding commitment as a percentage of overall government budget revenues, and because its plan does little to foment competition in the high-speed broadband market.[1]

    Australia, with the most ambitious targets in the world for both speed and coverage, ranks in the bottom half of the index, because its National Broadband Network (NBN) program is partially funded by the Australian government and the rankings ignore plans to privatize the network in year 9. South Korea, by comparison, was also a government initiative 15 years ago but has now been privatized, hence its high ranking.

    cheers

      Ande, your post didn't appear initially because it was "unapproved" according to the system. There's no reason of my making for why that should be the case...so I guess it's a software bug.

    When I'm travelling, I like to write about the things that interest me...and to contribute to various websites and social media.. Barely a week after I returned from Vietnam, I commenced a 2000km road trip from my Macleay Island home to my home state of South Australia. While the circumstances are different, the problem of staying connected remains the same.

    Accessing the Internet when on the road is easy enough these days...if you have a smartphone...and you're within range of your Telco's signal.

    I like to travel with an iPad and a MacBook...and I have two Internet options available to me. I can utilise the personal hotspot on my iPhone or I can use a Telstra Mobile 4GX Pro Mobile Broadband device. I have access to nearly 14Gb of data (per month) under my phone package and this is transferable to any of my devices. Of course, connectivity (in either situation) is conditional upon being within mobile phone range.
