Vietnam’s biggest telecoms company will launch commercial 5G services this year, bypassing China’s Huawei and using technology it has developed itself, reports the Financial Times.

State-owned Viettel will begin deploying the next generation mobile network technology from June and complete nationwide deployment a year later. The company announced the plan on Friday after conducting its first trial video call using a connection on equipment produced internally.

Viettel said it took six months for its research and development arm, Viettel High Technology, to develop the hardware and software needed to make the call. It said it would be the sixth producer of 5G equipment after Ericsson, Nokia, Huawei, Samsung Electronics and ZTE. Viettel has more than 110m customers in 11 countries, including Cambodia, Haiti and Peru.
