The damage to an inter-continental Internet cable is scheduled to be fixed on August 24, three days later than expected, cable operator Asia-America Gateway (AAG) said.
A segment of the AAG cable, about 80 km from Hong Kong, was ruptured by Typhoon Nida on August 2 evening. Another segment, more than 32 km from Singapore, was broken on the next morning. These incidents have hurt Vietnam's international internet traffic.
This was the third time this year the cable, which is used by four Internet providers, VNPT, FPT Telecom, Viettel and SPT, was damaged.
The 20,000km cable, installed in 2009, is capable of delivering up to 2.88 Tbit/s.
