Two other major submarine cables connecting Vietnam to the world remain disrupted.

Repair work on the Asia Pacific Gateway (APG) undersea cable system that links Vietnam with its neighbors in the Asia-Pacific region has been completed, Vietnamplus reported, quoting service provider VNPT Vinaphone.

The APG Submarine Cable began operations in late December and was officially launched on January 3. It suffered problems and was shut down together with the Intra Asia (IA) cable system and the notorious Asia America Gateway (AAG) nearly two weeks ago.

According to VNPT, repairs to the APG were completed at 11 a.m. yesterday. The rupture-prone AAG connecting Vietnam and the U.S. is back up to 80 percent of its capacity and is expected to be fully operational by January 29.

It is not clear when the disruption to the IA undersea cable connecting Vietnam to Hong Kong and other parts of Asia will be fixed.
