HÀ NỘI — Internet submarine cables linked to Việt Nam will be fixed on October 24, said the Việt Nam Posts and Telecommunication Group, one of the largest Vietnamese internet providers.
The international undersea cable, AAG, broke down on October 12, slowing down the internet speed nationwide.
Earlier, on October 10, another undersea cable line, SMW3, also faced the same problem, severely disrupting the internet connection from Việt Nam to other countries.
The SMW3 cable line had developed problems in the sea area near China, VNPT said. SMW3 is expected to be fixed on Friday.
This is the fourth time AAG has faced problems this year.
The AAG line is one of the longest submarine cables in the world, stretching more than 20,000km across the Pacific Ocean to link Southeast Asia with the United States. The line accounts for up to 60 per cent of the internet connection between Việt Nam and the rest of the world. — VNS
