Suspected Streamyx Problem

We are noticing a good deal of users in West Malaysia experiencing speed degradations. East Malaysia does not seem to be as affected.

    yup…called up streamyx and they said it was due to the torrential rain back weeks ago and they are trying to fix it. but i suspect it might be due to the iskandar high speed broadband testing going on which affected skudai area. Even those having fix ip connection also experiencing slow connection.

    I am having problems with streamyx connecting to rapidshare. Instead of 150k/s i am getting less than 1. Have rung them but so far no results. They said they would reset my port – really they do not listen. i told them that i get the same problem at a friends computer who also uses streamyx. Also when i used yet another friends celcom account the connection was fine. It is definately a streamyx problem – now if i only knew how to convince them of this:-(

    I live in bandar tun razak,since streamyx started throttling p2p i have use rapidshare premium account as a medium to download,but since last week speed has drastically drop to 10kBps,i have test with different PC with same connection all fail,changing ip also won;t work.I tried download from my office which is tm fixed ip and it work also at my hometown in Penang also are not effected yet.I believe TM have started to capping bandwidth from rapidshare slowly starting in Klang Valley area.Have anyone having same problem as i am?

  4. Adil says:

    for normal browsing or downloading not from RS link i have no problem,seem like they are using same technique when they throttling p2p.

    My internet connection died 2 days ago, period. Left the house in the afternoon, went home at 9-ish and I couldn’t connect to Streamyx. Router DSL light was still green and stable.

    Called TM in the morning, tech support wanted to go through same useless troubleshooting, so I said skip it and head straight to resetting my port (which fixes the problem most of the time). Still doesn’t work, called back 10 minutes later, got another guy who finally admitted it might be a problem with the port itself, so he makes a report and asks me to wait a couple of days for the technician to check it.

    Somewhere later in the evening, my DSL light goes bye bye too and now its blinking. Despair sets in, and I have two college assigments still due.

    Arghhhh… I’m from Perai, Penang… Dunno if it’s my line or what.. I’ve got lots lots lots of ping request timeout when pinging http://www.yahoo.com or http://www.google.com... or even http://www.streamyx.com

  9. Mahmud says:

    I’m from Kedah. Two days my internet become better, but i can’t download from rapidshare. I’m agree with you guys, that TM throttling rapidshare.

  10. Azrulex says:

    Hi guys,

    Im facing same problem. My download rate from rapidshare decreased rapidly from 400kbps to 10kbps. Only 2 things in my mind right now. Either tmnet start capping rapidshare or they have problem with underground cable what so ever. I tried vpn to server in amsterdam and download rate from rapidshare is fast.

  11. Azrulex says:

    I will do 1 test tonight to confirm if tmnet banned rapidshare or not. I will post the result soonest.

  12. Ram says:

    I got the same problem in slow and unstable speed in Penang. I registered for 1m but my line only 0.23kb or something. I just phoned to TM, I was informed that the line unstable because they are upgrading. What the fuckkkkk upgrading all the time, but never getting better…If really upgrading why the TM does not inform people or publish in newspaper….just keep quite there…pakai otak sama lah…tiap2 bulan kita kena bayar cost renting ni..

  13. reex says:

    i also have same problem i cannot download from RS..
    i even cannot log in yahoo mail..
    the connection was very slow!

  14. Abang Yun On says:

    i am using streamyx at Tuaran, Sabah…. Last night still managed to download a couple of gigabyres from RS but today, not even a kilobyte came through… Usual browsing, facebook, all ok… so, is this the end of RS at STREAMYX?

  15. tim says:

    i’m from sabah and hav been having the same prob wif RS for a couple of weeks.the speed barely eceeds 10kb/s.previously it would be 150-170kb/s.called tm and as usual tht din help.

  16. gieorgio says:

    i’m from jengka pahang, also having a same problem regarding downloading…when i check the spedometer the download speed tell 833kbps….but when i download the kbps good for about 5-10 second then it will drop until bps only…OMG..TM please do something

  17. BadAss says:

    It’s time that we unite together and boycott TMnet, cancel our subscription and stop paying our fees as they breach contract by not providing us a minimum service, see how fast things would improve !
    Next would be Astro’s turn, cancell and boycot, they are charging us ridiculous monthly rates for watching commercials already paid by the brand owners, they should be paying us for wasting our time.
    Astro as ridiculous as TMnet ………… but Malaysia Boleh, and nothing will change !

  18. ZzzZ says:

    zzzzzzzz RS still cant use…

    better we potong,potong je la

  19. ghaus says:

  21. zacky says:

  22. BadAss says:

    @Reuben, No TV or Internet for a while is not so bad, spend time with friends is much better.
    You will indeed miss a whole bunch of advertisement’s, internet through 2g 3g is still doable.
    You have to sacrifice a bit to beat the bastards 🙂

    I feel Streamyx should employ some real prominent computer experts to look into the problems faced by so many of their subscribers and then get them solved. This is the only way to help us get out of the frequent predicament.

    I feel Streamyx should employ some real prominent computer experts to look into the frequent problems faced by so many of their subscribers and then get them solved and not to repeat those useless steps again and again without any real effective result.

  25. Cheong says:

    For Malaysia to achieve the status of fully developed nation by 2020, efficient internet services is one of the yardsticks that we cannot afford to take it easy. We have to prove that we have enough competent computer experts to help maintain a consistently sound and efficient internet system so that users would not be discouraged from continuously using it. Only with more Malaysian happily using our Internet service to conduct interaction and transactions and gather information, our country will then be more likely to be capable of achieving the fully developed nation status by 2020.
