Vietnam’s Internet speed crippled by fresh error on submarine cable

The Asia Pacific Gateway (APG), one of the major submarine cable systems in Vietnam, had an error on Tuesday, the Vietnam News Agency quoted an Internet service provider as saying.

Due to this error, Internet users are expected to experience trouble when accessing international websites and applications.

Local service providers have routed international traffic to other cable systems and optimized related technical systems in a bid to minimize the impact of the error on users.

It remains unknown when the repair work on the APG cable system will be completed.

International connection in Vietnam relies on multiple submarine cable systems, namely the APG, Asia America Gateway (AAG), Intra-Asia (IA), Southeast Asia-Middle East-Western Europe 3 (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.

A problem previously occurred on the submarine cable system in mid-December 2021, and the repair work was not finished until late February.
