Internet speeds improve as four out of five undersea cables are fixed
According to the telecommunications department under the information ministry, four out of the five international undersea cables that were damaged last year and early this year have been fixed. However, the Asia-Pacific Gateway (APG) internet cable, which is the cable with the largest bandwidth connecting Vietnam with the rest of Asia, is still experiencing errors.
The APG has 10,400 km of cable under the Pacific Ocean and provides a maximum bandwidth of 54 terabytes per second. The cable had problems with its connection to Hong Kong and another cable 151 km offshore, affecting the entire line. The APG route is expected to be repaired by June.
With the repair and normal operation of four undersea cable routes, IA, SMW3, AAE-1, and AAG, Vietnam’s internet services have improved, providing more connection options with better latency. This will allow telecom operators to navigate data traffic more flexibly, ensure service quality and enhance the internet experience for customers.
