measures are taken and more data flows on land-based cables are opened up, according to the

Four submarine cables Asia-America Gateway (AAG), Asia Africa Europe 1 (AAE-1), Asia Pacific
Gateway (APG), and Intra Asia (IA) that connect the country to the world are experiencing
issues, seriously affecting performance and reliability as about 75 per cent of international
Internet connections from Vietnam have been lost.
Since February 10 when telecommunication firms took technical solutions and opened up more
data flows on land-based cables, the Internet connections have been improved and 50 per cent
of international Internet capacity has been restored.
Director of the Vietnam Telecommunications Authority, Nguyen Hong Thang,said that a
coordination board was established to monitor measures responding to the submarine cable
Notably, besides applying technical measures, telecommunications firms also quickly opened
more connection capacity on land cables to ensure service quality and interests for Internet
users despite high costs, he said.
Following the direction of the Ministry of Information and Communications,
telecommunications enterprises shared international traffic with each other, for example,
Viettel shared 100Gbps of international Internet connection capacity for VNPT.
On the morning of February 12, VNPT’s peak hour traffic was 94.95 per cent, while Viettel’s was
96 per cent.
To completely solve this problem, VNPT has negotiated with partners to buy more Internet
capacity on land and put it into use in the next one or two weeks.
