Here are vietnam prepaid sim card mobile internets of the network providers. Each package has different characteristics and I will divide the packages by using time: 1 day, 1 week, 1 month

Depending on how long you spend in Vietnam, choose the appropriate package. After each cycle, the package will automatically renew with the account remaining. If the account runs out of money, the package will be canceled, you must re-register the package.

Each package has a certain data capacity, when all data is used, there will be 2 cases:

  1. You will not be able to access the internet anymore, you need to buy extra data packages and wait for a new cycle (for example, you buy the package weekly but you have used up the data in 5 days then you have to wait another 2 days more to get all data of the package)
  2. You still have access to the internet and it will be deducted from your remaining account. For example, your account has VND 100,000, you register a data package of VND 70,000, you have 30,000 remaining then it will be deducted from this account -> you should not buy a package like this, ask the store staff carefully
