Slow internet speeds have long been a source of frustration for internet users in Vietnam, but relief is on the horizon. A new undersea cable, the Asia Pacific Gateway Submarine Cable, has been completed by NEC, a Japanese IT corporation, at a cost of $450 million. The cable will link Vietnam with several countries in the Asia-Pacific region, including Japan, Hong Kong, Mainland China, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, and Thailand, and has a total length of around 10,900 kilometers, running through Vietnam’s central city of Da Nang.

Here are some key takeaways:

  • New undersea cable to boost Vietnam’s internet speed
  • Faster and more reliable internet connections
  • Improved experience for individuals and businesses

New Undersea Cable Boasts Impressive Speeds and Capacity

The new cable boasts 100 Gbps optical transmission capabilities and has a capacity of more than 54 Tbps, making it much faster than the current Asia America Gateway, which has a speed of 2.88 Tbps and has been prone to ruptures and shutdowns for maintenance. The new cable has 13 investors, including Viettel and the Vietnam Post and Telecommunications Group, two of Vietnam’s biggest telecom companies.

Boon for Businesses and Individuals Alike

Vietnamese service providers have been trying to ease their reliance on the Asia America Gateway, which has been a major source of slow internet speeds in the country. With the completion of the new cable, internet users in Vietnam can expect faster and more reliable internet connections, which will be a boon for businesses and individuals alike. With nearly 49 million people online in Vietnam, this new undersea cable will make a big difference in the lives of many.
