AAG optical cable repaired, Internet connection in Vietnam resumes


The representative of the International Telecommunications Company (VNPT-I) - Mr. Lam Quoc Cuong said at 2.20am on May 12, the last wielding point was finished and the international Internet traffic has been recovered.

 

The second incident for the Asia-American Gateway (AAG) submarine cable this year has been solved after 20 days. Earlier, domestic Internet services provider announced that the repair would be completed prior to May 13.

 

After the welding stage, workers have to bury the cable. "According to technical standards, AAG cable is buried at a depth of about 1.5 meters below the seabed," Cuong said.

 

AAG submarine cable was cut again on April 23 morning. The breakdown is located in SH1 segment, about 300km offshore Vung Tau, which is a turn from the international line via Hong Kong (China) to Ho Chi Minh City.

 

Earlier, the AAG submarine cable was cut on January 5 and it took two weeks to resolve the issue.

 

The AAG is a 20,000-kilometre long submarine communications cable system, connecting Southeast Asia with the US mainland, across the Pacific Ocean via Guam and Hawaii.

 

With a total investment of approximately $560 million, AAG has a length of nearly 20,000 km, starting from Malaysia (TM) and ending in the U.S. (AT & T Telecom Company).

 

The segment to Vietnam is 314 km long and lands at Vung Tau.  There are four participants in the system, including FPT Telecom, VNPT, Viettel and SPT.
