The Asia America Gateway (AAG) cable system will be maintained from 11:00 pm on June 22 to June 27, tech newswire ICTNews reported on Saturday. During the maintenance, Vietnam users may experience slow connections for websites or online services hosted outside the country, such as in Hong Kong or the U.S.
Connection for locally hosted platforms will not be affected.
ICTNews said the incident will mostly affect subscribers of such Internet service providers as VNPT, FTP and Viettel, should these companies not have any alternative cable systems to ensure traffic.
The AAG is a 20,000-kilometer-long submarine communications cable system, connecting Southeast Asia with the U.S. mainland across the Pacific Ocean via Guam and Hawaii.
