Vietnam to add 4 more high-capacity cables for telecommunications expansion next year

February 01, 2024

Vietnam plans to invest in two to four additional international telecommunications cables, each with a data capacity of 60 Tbps, by 2025. These infrastructure upgrades aim to facilitate high-speed data transfer, enhance network security, and ensure reliable Internet connections for users. The plan includes 90 percent of users enjoying fixed Internet speeds of 200 Mbps, and 90 percent of socio-economic organizations having high-speed Internet connections of 1 Gbps. Despite Vietnam’s current five undersea cables with a combined capacity of 18.7 Tbps, frequent disruptions have been reported. In January last year, issues with all five cables resulted in a 75-percent loss in capacity, significantly impacting user connectivity.
