Last undersea Internet cable connecting Vietnam with the world breaks down

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% of international Internet capacity has been restored.

Nguyen Hong Thang, Director of the Vietnam Telecommunications Authority, said that a coordination board was established to monitor measures responding to the submarine cable incident.

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.
