There is a reported fault affecting connections to the US for Malaysian users:
Telekom Malaysia Berhad (TM) wishes to inform its Internet services customers we have detected some faults affecting the Asia America Gateway (AAG) cable network linking Malaysia to the United States (U.S).
Hence, customers using Internet services nationwide may experience some degree of service degradation such as slow browsing and high latency while accessing international websites hosted in the U.S. Customers using Virtual Private Network (VPN) and other critical business applications linked to the U.S. may also experience some level of service degradation. Meanwhile, to alleviate the problem, the traffic is being managed effectively to ease the situation.
Restoration works are currently in progress and we will make further announcements on the progress later.
