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.
How about you guys ? What option do we have ?

The broadband internet culture in Malaysia is developing fast, and since 2006 nearly three quarters of a million people have been connected to the internet via a broadband connection. Everything from ADSL services to fibre optic cable broadband and mobile broadband are available from a variety of providers all competing for business, which keeps the market competitive.
Malaysian Broadband Providers
The largest provider of ADSL broadband in Malaysia is TMnet, and arm of Telekom Malaysia, and they offer a good value, cheap broadband package called Streamyx which offers up to 4Mbps download speeds, and the cheaper packages are sold with a fixed amount of hours use available each month. For slightly more money you get faster speeds, a fixed monthly price with unlimited usage and a free modem, but there is a lot of choice in terms of what kind of package you can afford and you can choose based on price as well as your individual needs. TMnet also offer business broadband packages which are tailored to the needs of business use, from the home worker right up to the medium or large business. Jaring Flite Wired is the second largest provider, offering up to 1Mbps download speed during peak times on a 24 month contract with monthly payments.

The best way to find cheap broadband packages and compare deals in Malaysia is to use a broadband comparison website. Ranking ISPs by their speed, coverage and monthly costs will help you decide, and it`s always important to decide what you want from your broadband connection before you start looking so that you have a rough idea of what kind of deal will suit you, whether it is a fast connection or the convenience of Wi-Fi or Wi-MAX.
