VTV.vn - Three international submarine cables, the Asia-America Gateway (AAG), the Intra Asia (IA) and the Southeast Asia-Middle East-Western Europe (SMW3), are reported to be experiencing problems, affecting Vietnam’s external internet connection.

The Vietnam Post and Telecommunications Group (VNPT) said that telecom service providers are investigating the cause of the problem. Some experts attributed the incident to a recent storm that swept through the area surrounding China’s Hong Kong. Aside from cables crossing the northern border, Vietnam’s external internet connection depends on four submarine cables, namely IA, AAG, SMW3 and the Asia Pacific Gateway (APG).
