Hanoi (VNA) – The Asia-America Gateway (AAG) submarine cable encountered a technical trouble at 7:00 on October 12, losing signal connection with the Hong Kong (China) station, affecting Vietnam’s international internet links.
This is the fourth time the cable network was disrupted in 2017. The previous incidents occurred in January, February and August. The latest interruption on August 27 was fixed on September 26.
Representatives of internet service providers said that they have promptly taken back-up plans to address the problem, thus minising effects on the service quality.
