Asia-America Gateway Cable Broken Again

If you’ve noticed particularly slow Internet speeds for international websites today, you’re not alone. According to Zing, the Asia-America Gateway cable (AAG) has broken down yet again in what is becoming a reoccurring inconvenience.

FPT Telecom Manager, Nguyễn Văn Khoa, confirmed that the AAG cable was broken somewhere on the section that connects to Hong Kong around 12:00 this morning.

The quest to locate the broken segment is underway but is being hampered by Typhoon Kalmaegi which is moving across the East Sea.

Vietnamese Internet providers have tapped other sea and land cables to make up the difference, though connection speeds are still noticeably slower than usual.

The cable last broke in July and took nearly 2 weeks to repair.
