Vietnam’s Ministry of Information and Communications (MIC) is set to auction off spectrum in the 2300MHz-2400MHz band for the development of 4G and 5G services. Winning bidders will be limited to 30MHz of spectrum each, divided up as: 2300MHz-2330MHz; 2330MHz-2360MHz; and 2360MHz-2390MHz. Licences are valid for 15 years with starting bids beginning at VND386.4 billion (USD16.5 million). Interested parties have until 19 April to submit applications to the Authority of Radio Frequency Management (RFD), after which a list of eligible companies will be submitted to the MIC, which will then arrange the auction.

On 21 February 2023 the MIC issued Decision No. 219/QD-BTTTT approving the plan to organise an auction for rights to use radio frequencies in the 2300MHz-2400MHz band for terrestrial mobile communication systems.
