megaupload.com, depositfiles.com, zshare.net, warez-bb.org, thepiratebay.org, movie2k.to, megavideo.com, putlocker.com, duckload.com and filestube.com are not accessible from TM Net Streamyx. I usually download HTC HD2 ROMs from multiupload.com which has 6 other file sharing sites like rapidshare.com, hotfile.com, uploading.com, megaupload.com, depositfiles.com and zshare.net. 3 of them are blocked from my ISP now due to Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC)’s order to combat piracy. Oh well, here go some of my HTC HD2 ROM file sharing sites too. Tested with Celcom 3G connection, can’t access these file sharing sites too. Not sure about Maxis 3G and DiGi 3G…

Oh no… Slow Streamyx connection again? Telekom Malaysia Berhad (TM) wishes to announce that its consortium members have detected a cable fault on the Southeast Asia-Middle East-Western Europe 4 (SMW4) submarine cable network between Alexandria in Egypt and Palermo in Italy linking Malaysia to Europe and the United States (link). In this case, connection within Malaysia servers is still okay but no no when you try load oversea websites.
How to speed up Streamyx connection? That’s the question that I ask myself. All my blogs are hosted in US. And the performance is very bad now. Err…
Well, the first thing that I will do. Turn on the Streamyx proxy server on my Firefox browser (no proxy by default). This will speed up a lot because it will load the website from the proxy server. And only will load the website from its original server (let’s say located in US) if proxy server don’t have the cache.
Yes, I just turn on the Streamyx proxy server mode. Streamyx connection speed does improve some. Try it for yourself.
Yeah… I just upgraded my TM Net Streamyx internet package from Streamyx 512Kbps to Streamyx 1.0Mbps. I submitted the upgrade application just before Malaysia Budget 2010 that will give RM500 tax relief on broadband subscription fee. Anyway, I feel that my Internet connection speed was slow and needed to be upgraded to catch up. Therefore, I did it.
So how to test internet connection speed? There is a free tool from TM Net itself ~ TM Speedometer. With it, you can test your Internet connection speed with local server at Brickfields (Kuala Lumpur), Kelana Jaya (Petaling Jaya) and Cyberjaya. However, the test only cover connection within Malaysia only (Most of the Malaysia web servers are located there)
TM Net Streamyx is as slow as turtle? Is this statement true? By the time I wrote this article. TM Net website is still not accessible from my house using TM Net own service ~ Streamyx. Besides, the connection speed to almost every website is as slow as turtle especially websites hosted in US. Is there any underwater connection break down again?
TM Net website is not found
I am still using 512Kb TM Net Streamyx which cost me RM 66 (USD 18) per month. This is the cheapest unlimited access broadband that TM Net provide. I can get 8MB connection at least if I stay in China with this price. When can Malaysia broadband improve?
What is your broadband connection speed and how much does it cost?
