Vietnam’s Internet connection through the Asia America Gateway (AAG) cable system is being dragged to a snail’s pace for some users, as the notorious submarine cable system is undergoing two straight repairs that won’t complete until next month.

The AAG section that connects Vietnam with Hong Kong and the U.S. is being repaired from May 22 to 27, after which the second process will start for its landing point in the southern city of Vung Tau, a Vietnamese Internet service provider confirmed on Saturday.

The second repairs work will be carried out from June 1 to 6, according to the source.

As in previous cases when the notorious underwater system had problems, the repairs will throttle international connectivity from the country.

Local Internet service providers asserted that they have already taken measures to ensure connection quality for users, minimize the impacts of the issue.

However, it could not be ruled out that users in Vietnam will experience slow connection or have trouble visiting overseas-hosted Internet websites and services.

The 20,000-kilometer submarine communications cable system provides one of Vietnam’s lifeline Internet gateways to the world by linking it with other Southeast Asian countries and with the U.S. across the Pacific Ocean.
