The Vietnamese government ordered the country's five (that's 5) ISPs to block users' access to content "subversive and harmful to national security". a leading official explained in an interview with Vietnam Investment Review: "The main reason we have this situation is that the management capability of the Internet has not caught up with the development of its demands."
