A new undersea cable with a bandwidth of 126 Tbps, the highest of any serving Vietnam now, which is built by State-owned Vietnam Post and Telecommunication Group will link Vietnam soon.

In Vietnam, the point of connection of Vietnam's sixth international undersea cable would be in Quy Nhon in the south-central province of Binh Dinh.

The pan-Asian submarine cable connecting Singapore-Thailand-Vietnam-China-Korea-Japan has become the sixth international marine cable project invested and built by the group, said the Government News Portal.

VNPT has been collaborating with China Mobile International, Singapore's Singtel, Indonesia's Telin, Taiwan's Chunghwa Telecom, and South Korea’s SK Broadband to lay the undersea cable, which has total cost of $439 million.

Together with the current undersea cables AAG, APG, AAE-1, Faster, SMW-3, VNPT SJC2 cable line will provide a large capacity of high-speed connecting from Vietnam to international.

SJC2 will be the sixth international marine cable to serve Vietnam in which VNPT has a stake.

Military-run Viettel has said it has tied up with Singapore’s Singtel, China Telecom, Japan’s SoftBank, and India’s Tata Communications to install a 9,400-km submarine cable that would serve Vietnam. The 140 Tbps cable is expected to be laid by the end of 2022, VnExpress reported.
