Prepaid phone card, coverage

Hi

I will be in Saigon and Phu Quoc next week and I'm thinking of buying a prepaid sim card for my mobile at Saigon airport for international calls, does anyone know which provider has the best coverage on Phu Quoc?

Regards,

Hi Per,

Years ago it was VinaFone. I don’t use mobile phone on holiday now so I don’t have an update.

Hope the locals can add more info. If there is no more reply, the seller will tell you which one has the best coverage.

Hi Per

We were there last year and vinafone was certainly good. We travelled from the north of vietnam to the south and had coverage the whole time. We purchased a sim card for only a few dollars and didn't buy any more credit the whole time we were there. The calls and texts back to the UK were really simple to make and very cheap too. The locals will be able to offer the best advice when you arrive as it is really easy to pick up a card from lots of places and everywhere stocks a variety, Hope this helps

Best regards

LW-UK :-)
