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).

Streamyx, can you beat me?

For more information, please visit Lowyat.NET. They have several solutions to solve this throttle issue.

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?

Do you know what is fair usage policy?

Do you know what fair usage policy is? Fair usage policy is a new term to me. So what is fair usage policy anyway? It is a term used by TM Net Streamyx. Hehe… When you see TM Net or Streamyx, you can know that it is not a good stuff already. Yup. It is not a good stuff indeed for a Streamyx user like me who like to use P2P software to download stuffs. When I signed up for Streamyx unlimited plan, I should get unlimited data transfer, right? NO! With fair usage policy, user who uses P2P will have less connection speed. And the transfer rate will be low too.

I am using Streamyx 512kbps package.
