Vietnam’s Internet speed to remain unstable until mid-July

Internet connectivity in Vietnam will remain unstable until mid-July as the error on a submarine cable network has yet to be repaired.

Earlier, errors were detected on two major submarine cable networks, APG (Asia Pacific Gateway) and AAE-1 (Asia Africa Europe 1), in mid-May, which largely affected Internet speed in the country.

While the repair of the APG system will wrap up within Monday, work on the AAE-1 is expected to begin on June 22.

If the repair of the AAE-1 goes as planned, Internet connectivity in the country will fully recover on July 13, according to a local network operator.

Following the detection of the errors, Internet service providers have transferred international connection traffic to backup cable routes in order to minimize the negative impact on users.

International connection in Vietnam relies on several submarine cable systems, namely the APG, AAG, SMW3, IA, and AAE-1, according to the Vietnam Internet Association.

The APG, which runs about 10,400 kilometers underwater across the Pacific Ocean, connects Vietnam with mainland China, Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand, and Singapore.

The AAE-1, meanwhile, connects 19 countries and territories in Asia, the Middle East, and Africa.
