HO CHI MINH CITY -- Vietnam's biggest mobile carrier will start selling a range of digital services from cloud computing to cyber protection as part of a dramatic rebrand announced on Thursday.

The military-owned Viettel said it is looking to shed its image as a "trustworthy but slow middle-aged man" to attract a younger generation of customers. In addition to an expanded lineup of services, the company also unveiled a new logo and slogan.
