The Government of Vietnam is planning to build three new subsea internet cables by 2025, increasing the country’s available cable networks to 10. The ADC and the SJC cable networks are expected to come online in 2023. The systems are expected to be managed and operated by Vietnam-based telecom companies.
Currently, four of the five existing undersea cable systems are facing connectivity issues. Adding more cable networks is expected to increase the stability of available data in the long term.
Improving regional connections has also been recommended by consultants, specifically to Malaysia and Thailand. As of now, Singapore and Hong Kong are the two major connectivity hubs for Vietnam.
