Fix TM Net Streamyx throttle issue with Hotspot Shield ~ AnchorFree

Malaysia TM Net Streamyx users are facing slow connection speed due to throttle implementation on certain file types download. There are several ways to fix this throttle issue. We can use proxy server and VPN to bypass it. I tried several proxy servers but can’t solve the issue. Seem like the only way is to use VPN. There are free and paid VPN out there. So far, I tried free UltraVPN and Hide My IP 5.0 trial. Both of them are not working for me. And finally found Hotspot Shield from AnchorFree that is working fine. It is free but an adware.

Test Internet connection speed

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 connection speed is being throttled!!!

Yup. If you are a Malaysia heavy download user, you might notice this already. TM Net Streamyx connection speed is being throttled. They throttle connection speed on certain file types such as MKV, AVI, RMVB… So your download will be very very slow on these file types. However, they are good enough to set happy hour (full connection speed) during midnight (time vary).

TM Net Streamyx is as slow as turtle?

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?
