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).
