The repair of an AAG subterranean optical cable will be completed four days earlier than expected thanks to better weather.
FPT Telecom Joint Stock Company said repairs on the Asia America Gateway (AAG) cable network will be finished on September 30, four days ahead of schedule.
Hong Kong authorities licensed the welding cable ship to enter its territorial waters earlier than expected. The initial plan had called for repairs to start on September 29 and end on October 4.
On September 15, the AAG cable broke at a site 64 km from Hong Kong. This incident affected Internet services in Vietnam, especially communications and exchange of information from Vietnam to other countries.
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.
