Telecom firms promise ‘unstagnant’ international Internet connections starting tonight


Telecommunication firms on Friday guaranteed that Vietnam’s international Internet connections would no longer be “stagnated” starting Friday night.

At a meeting on the same day between the Ministry of Information and Communications and telecom firms regarding issues with Vietnam’s subsea cables, Internet service providers said they would utilize different methods to open up more data flows on land, as well as sharing between one another data flows going outside of Vietnam to ensure that connections remain stable.

A representative of the information ministry said that during this particular period, providers should not compete with one another, but collaborate for mutual sustainable development. Those with spare data should share with those who don’t, and those who don’t have enough data would need to purchase more, the representative added.

Providers need to make sure that “customers’ actual data usage during peak hours must never exceed 90% of the international data amount which service providers can afford”, the representative said.

“When multiple subsea cables encounter issues at the same time and affecting Vietnam’s Internet connections, telecom firms must support each other during these trying times,” said information minister Nguyen Manh Hung.

“If stagnation still happens following technical interventions, businesses with spare data would share their international Internet connections with businesses without enough data to ensure quality of service,” he said, requesting telecom firms to open up more Internet connection pathways on land.

Normally, Vietnam’s subsea cables have a total data amount at 18.7 Tbps. 60% of them would be for actual operations, while 40% would be reserved as backup. But with four out of five subsea cables encountering issues currently, the amount of data available was slashed down by 75%, forcing service providers to purchase an extra 3 Tbps.

This is the first time that all telecom firms in Vietnam face such a large-scale coordinated effort to maintain stable international Internet connections. Vietnam however is not alone, as the damaged cables affect Internet connections in other Asian countries as well.

“Telecom firms need to prepare for situations where cables encounter issues, so there could be plans to ensure stable international Internet connections,” said a representative of a steering committee for problem resolution.
