APG (Asia-Pacific Gateway) is a fiber optic cable that will connect directly with the major economies in the region such as China, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong and is a key reserve online for international channels active today as IA, AAG. APG will be a submarine cable with a total length of 8,000 km, running from South Korea to Malaysia with an initial bandwidth of 4 Tbps. The planned submarine cable will be put into operation in 2014.

Some suggested that more submarine cables in Vietnam are essential because in 2011-2012 AAG submarine cable had at least six incidents or maintenance affecting Internet connection speed.

International submarine cable route in Vietnam is linear Asia (IA) 2, which was having trouble that had a huge impact on Internet access speed.
