Relax it’s not the Conficker Worm that effect Telekom Broadband Network. It’s just a circuit faults
Telekom Malaysia Berhad (TM) wishes to announce that there is a disruption of its Internet services due to circuit faults on the SMW3 between Tuas, Singapore and Penang linking Malaysia to Hong Kong and APCN2 near Chongming, China connecting Malaysia to the United States.
As a result, customers using the Internet services may experience slow browsing while accessing websites hosted in the U.S. and Hong Kong.

TM promise that all Broadband service will be restored this 5th April. I have nothing much to say, except it’s really irritating since problem with Streamyx is a never ending story.
Preventive maintenance should be done regularly and speed recovery is crucial since all broadband are all depends on TM backbone. I don’t care how it’s done, but I pay a lot every months so I need a quality class service.
Last week, my Billion Modem (a broadband modem supplied by TM ) was damage due to lightning. Lets do some flashback..
That was the second time my modem was struck by lightning. The first incident happened early this year. My internet connection was down when I got back home with my family from my sister’s in law house.My house was blacked-out and the main switch was turned off. So I tried to check my connection and configuration.After trying to reconfigure my Aztech Wireless Broadband Router, connect and reconnect to modem still did not solve the problem. I suspected that my modem was damaged even though the power and connection LED was on. Finally, my intuition was right when my modem was not working when I tested at my office Streamyx Connection.
So I called TM Customer Service, as usual they will asked you to check your setup and network connection. After they were satisfied that my networking configuration was fine,they told me that they will ask their technician to fix the problem in 2 days. But after 2 days, the technician did not show up. I made another friendly call to TM asking what wrong with their technical support.
Immediately the next day, a guy from TM came to my house and brought a new modem. He tested Streamyx connection and made a direct connection with my modem by Ethernet cable, and confirmed that my modem was damaged by power imbalance where an unexpected increase in the current voltage, also known as surge. It usually cause by lightning.
The 2nd Strike
My problem internet was solved after getting new modem. I thought the lightning can only damage your electronic device through power cable. So every time when I go to work, I will turn off the main switch.But I was wrong, when my house blacked-out again and my internet connection was down. Not Again, I said to myself. When I checked, there was no connection with modem using Ethernet cable. So my modem was damaged.
This time, I directly called TM and report about my modem. Again, TM always surprised me. The customer service told me, they cannot replace my modem anymore as the modem warranty is just for 1 year. WHATTT !!!. He told me to buy new one by myself. If you read my previous entry, Streamyx Bill Paid Online, I did mention that my Merdeka Unlimited Package (Streamyx ) is for 2 years that end October next year.
What choices do I have ? I have to bought new modem to replace my Billion Streamyx Modem. Somehow I felt I was unfairly treated as a customer. Why do you offer a service that I have to oblige for 2 years but your product warranty is just for 1 year? On top of that, you gave me a cap Ayam brand modem that cannot withstand surge while my Aztech Wireless Broadband works perfectly fine.. I will tell you what is the main cause of my Modem being damage again and again.Poor Me
