Vietnam’s Internet speed will likely slow down next week as an international Internet cable will undergo a scheduled maintenance, according to a service provider.
The Asia America Gateway, which connects Vietnam and the US, will be serviced from June 22 to 27, the source told Thanh Nien.
It said that access to domestic websites will be less affected than international sites.
The 20,000-km cable has encountered frequent ruptures since it was put into use in November 2009. The latest maintenance was in March.

Vietnam is planning and developing more undersea cable lines to ease its dependance of the Asia America.
