    I am already experiencing this before this so-called maintenance.
    And the IPCORE? Could be just some checking whose Streamyx account bandwidth is not capped properly, like those 1Mbps user whom enjoyed the 2Mbps or 1.5Mbps speed, will all be either hard or soft capped for them to pull more subscribers.
    And most of all, network latency getting worst with each IP subnet being introduced, I’m not sure what they did but it just screw up those precious latency that previously allow us to connect to Singapore’s games server without lag now feels like a dead goat in the mid road.

    i dunno about you guys, but my line has been capped for the whole month.
    before was 166kbps, then 120kbps, now below 20kbps

    Without this blog, I wouldn’t have known of maintenance work by TM. Like wildwestgoh (and NtN) said, maybe they’re “updating” their list of users. I get a good 150KB/s before this but lately the number hovers around 110KB..

    The maintenance is already over and my internet is still slow
