Torn Internet Cables.

Internet Cable Breaks.

Alexandria Cable Breaks and Dubai Cable Breaks.


Vietnam's internet speed slowed to a snail's pace August 27 after breaks to three internet cable systems connecting the country with the rest of the world (August 30, 2017)

The submarine cables, known as the Asia America Gateway (AAG), Intra Asia (IA) and SEA-ME-WE3 (SMW3), all encountered problems on Sunday afternoon.

The AAG is believed to have been ruptured at two points about 66 kilometers (41 miles) and 85 kilometers from its Hong Kong station. Meanwhile, the IA's problem was reported to be a rupture about 54 kilometers from Hong Kong.

"SEA-ME-WE3 submarine cable between Perth and Singapore is currently down due to a confirmed cable break," Vocus said on Wednesday morning.

"Internet providers in Viet Nam failed to provide an explanation as to why all three internet cables were down at the same time and were unclear about the timeline of when the cables would be fixed," the report said.

Before August 27's incident, the infamous AAG had already ruptured twice this year. Repair work for these problems, one in early January and one in late February, took about one month each. The IA has also ruptured three times this year.

The SMW3 also suffered an outage due to the cable being severed back in 2013.

Looks like the folding Philippine Plate is the nexus for those locations.
