Figures released by Vietnam's Ministry of Information and Communications(MIC) reveals that by the end of 2011, Vietnam had 127.3 million mobile phone owners, 10.2 million landline subscribers and 30.5 million Internet users.

MIC Deputy Minister Nguyen Minh Hong said Vietnam’s 2012 White Book on Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), gives a real panorama of how the sector has developed in terms of ICT infrastructure, IT technology, post and telecommunications, IT application, ICT human resources and information security.

According to the book, published annually since 2009, the number of mobile phone and internet subscribers rose by 14 percent and 14.2 percent respectively in 2011. More than 16 million people also used 3G mobile networks, representing more than 80 percent of all broadband internet users in the country.

In 2011, postal services earned over US$246.2 million, out of a total ICT turnover of US$13.7 billion, a year on year rise of 79 percent.

At the same time, broadcasting services also expanded to cover the entire country and provide people with a diverse range of services.

IT application in State agencies has actively contributed to administrative reforms. Almost every ministry, State agency, city and province now has their own websites and portals.
