I am now back from the US after a month and would like to thank Amin for taking good care of everyone :D.
BolehRoute’s server is being moved to a different host and a beefier server. This should improve stability and performance. The server should be setup in the next 1-2 days and the updated config will be placed in our forums.
In other news I notice a huge degradation of quality in E. Malaysian connections resulting in high pings even to local servers.
This is a result of pinging TM’s own DNS server. I repeated this test with several other IP ranges 60.54,124.13, 124.82 and received the same result. Guess we can only wait till TM resolves this.

Ping statistics for 126.96.36.199:
Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
Minimum = 192ms, Maximum = 198ms, Average = 195ms
Update: Sometime this morning, the connection seems to have been restored. Apparently it wasn’t just E. Malaysia that was affected but certain other states like Malacca as well. Still no word from TM as usual 😛
Update: 21 June the problem has reoccurred and Freeman reports that JB, Malacca and Selangor are affected as well in certain ranges.
