Two New Streamyx Announcements: Upgrades and Poofness

TM- Upgrading of Core Network

Telekom Malaysia Berhad (TM) wishes to inform our customers that we will be migrating our existing global network to a new platform to facilitate ongoing improvements of our network performance and service quality. The migration will allow TM to provide a more integrated service proposition to support a larger ecosystem of applications.

The migration exercise will take place on 9, 13, 16, 20 and 23 January 2010 between 12.00 am until 6.00 am.

Therefore, all our Internet and Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) services such as Streamyx, iTalk and Home Prepaid customers nationwide may experience minor service interruptions during the stipulated period. We would like to assure our customers that the services would resume to normal after the stipulated period.

TM would like to thank you for your patience during our migration period and we would like to assure you that we are upgrading our network to enable us to provide you with the best in next- generation network (NGN) services.

This was shortly followed by the AAG announcement from TM:

Telekom Malaysia Berhad (TM) wishes to announce that there has been a disruption of its Internet services due to circuit faults on the Asian American Gateway (AAG) submarine cable network at Lantau in China and at the domestic international link at Genting Sempah, Pahang, linking Malaysia to the United States (US) and Hong Kong.

Due to this, customers using Internet services may now experience slow browsing while accessing content hosted in the U.S. and Hong Kong. In addition, customers using other IP services such as Virtual Private Network (VPN) and other critical business applications linked to the U.S. and Hong Kong may also experience some service degradation.

To alleviate the problem, some of the links have been rerouted to alternate routes to ease the congestion.

During the restoration process, traffic to Northern America and Hong Kong may experience minor degradation while traffic to other countries is not affected. TM will make further announcements on the progress of the restoration works.

TM wishes to assure its customers that it is undertaking all necessary measures to restore communications services for its customers as soon as possible.

By the way, did anyone notice that the first announcement uses .html while the second announcement uses .aspx? What happened to standardization?

    You totally forgotten about this new slogan.
    1Malaysia, 2Standards.

  2. Penang says:


    It is 1malaysia, NOstandard.

    Look, AAG isn’t used by only TM. If AAG is indeed disrupted, how come only Malaysia is affected?

    How come other users of AAG aren’t affected by the severed cable?

    But as Malaysia goes, nobody up there care to answer any of our questions.

    At least they bothered to make an announcement? LOL…

    Not sure if this explains the extreme ftp slowdowns though – cuz http speeds during those slowdowns were blazing fast 🙂
