The undersea international cable AAG (Asia Pacific Gateway) that connects Vietnam to the world has been completely fixed, one day earlier than schedule, according to the AAG operating unit.
The cable operator said the weld started at 11.15pm on October 1 and finished at 7.45am on October 2. International channels have been restored 100 percent.
On September 15, the AAG cable broke at a site 64 km from Hong Kong. This incident affected Internet services in Vietnam, especially connections to other countries.
On September 30, the second break was reported, 68 km from the Hong Kong mainland station.
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 US (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.
This is the 2nd time this year the network was broken. The first occurred in July, 18 km off the coast of Vung Tau, Vietnam and it was fixed nearly two weeks later.
