The Internet at school program has been carried out by the Ministry of Education and Training and Viettel since September, 2008. The program provides more than 25 million teachers and students access to internet for teaching, study, and research work. Under the agreement, both sides will invest in the equipment, manuals and other related documents to help train teachers in the use of the internet.

Dr. Quach Tuan Ngoc, director of the Information Technology Department under the Ministry of Education and Training, claimed that Vietnam will now be one of the few countries in the world that provides free Internet access to schools.

According to the 2010 report of Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization (SEAMEO), Vietnam was ranked with Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand in the use of information technology (IT) in education.

The program will also greatly promote information technology to local communities.
