Vietnam finishes repairing two major submarine cable systems

Vietnam finishes repairing two major submarine cable systems

Tuesday, March 01, 2022, 11:52 GMT+7

Two out of three major submarine cable systems in Vietnam, which previously had errors, have been fixed, contributing to the improvement of Internet connectivity in the country.

The problems on the Intra-Asia (IA) and Asia Pacific Gateway (APG) cable systems were solved on Sunday, a network operator confirmed on Monday.

An error was previously detected on the IA about 10 days ago, while the APG had encountered a problem for over three months.

The complete restoration of these two cable systems is very important in boosting Vietnam's Internet speed, especially international connection.

The issue on the Asia America Gateway (AAG) cable, which occurred in late October 2021, is still being fixed, and the repair work is expected to be finished in mid-March.

International connection in Vietnam relies on several submarine cable systems, namely the APG, AAG, IA, SMW3, and Asia-Africa-Europe 1 (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 AAG is a 20,000-kilometer submarine communications cable system connecting Southeast Asia with the U.S. mainland across the Pacific Ocean via Guam and Hawaii.

The IA, with a total length of 6,800 kilometers, links Internet users in Vietnam, Singapore, the Philippines, Hong Kong, and Japan.
