Is Vietnam a Zone 1 or 2 country for postpaid roaming?

According the these two threads, Vietnam is now supposed to be a Zone 1 country with the introduction of the Optus Roaming Pass:

https://yescrowd.optus.com.au/t5/Mobile/What-are-the-Zone-1-countries-with-Optus-for-international/m...

However on the main Optus website, Vietnam is still listed as a Zone 2 country:

https://www.optus.com.au/mobile/plans/international-roaming/postpaid-rates

So is Vietnam still a Zone 2 country or is it now a Zone 1 country for postpaid roaming? I don't want to be paying excess charges just because Optus has not provided consistently correct information.

Optus NEEDS to get rid of all their old pages with very outdated information.

Its a Zone 1 per the latest page: https://www.optus.com.au/for-you/mobile/plans/international-roaming/optus-roaming-pass

Roaming Pass was only launched on Monday (2nd March)

Vietnam is also listed as a Zone 2 country even on that page you linked to.

Zone 2 if you dont activate roaming pass in your account and just pay as you go (aka kidney as you go).

They need to make the whole thing clearer, still using pages that are a decade out of date.

Just noticed this at the top of the article on Yes Crowd:

 

From 15 March 2020 there will also be changes to Zone 1 eligible travel destinations for customers with mobile or mobile broadband plans that include international roaming.

 

So it's still zone 2 for another week or 2 but you can already use the roaming pass there.
