Internet connection is a must for most of us nowadays. I cannot survive without Internet as I need to blog to make a living. There are 3 main broadband providers in Malaysia which are Celcome, Maxis and DiGi. I am so lucky to have a chance to test Maxis Wireless Broadband that I grab from my brother in law.

How to speed up Streamyx connection?

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.
