There are four main attributes of mobile service quality including Network Quality, Price, Customer Service and Promotion. The Quantitative research and Deductive approach were used in this dissertation. The researcher did a pre-test with 30 respondents in the first time and thereafter conducted large scale of survey with 250 students who were randomly selected in four universities in Ho Chi Minh City by sending emails and direct asking. After two weeks for collecting the responses, there were 233 valid surveys which got 93.2% of total. The responses revealed students’ perception and evaluation in selecting telecom service providers regarding to the four influencing factors that were mentioned above. The findings from data analysis implied that most of students are strongly impacted by Price and Promotion. Besides, they also concerns about Network Quality and Customer Service; however, it is not significant. Based on the result, the researcher also made some recommendations to assist operators more understanding customers’ demand.
