Seem to be capped at 50 kB/sec if you’re on Streamyx? You’re not alone

It seems there is some problem with Streamyx which they have not announced. Several of our users have reported speeds apparently being capped at 50 kB/sec even though no cap has been placed on our side.

We know it’s not a VPN issue as the Speedtest results also show that there is a problem with Streamyx. I’ll let ainuddin’s post explain the situation:

@Reuben and @JessCC: ive been experiencing the same problem of vpn, bolehroute and normal connection slowdown for almost 24 hours. ive tested with different ip’s, eg. 60.50, 60.49, 60.52, 60.53, 124.82 all to no avail. ive tested my connection and noticed that ;

a) tm speedometer gave me full normal speed of 1.5 Mbps ;

b) speedometer gave constant 0.5 Mbps to all international servers ive tried ; singapore, UK and US

c) speedometer to Penang, KL and Seri Kembangan gave good, full speed of 1.5 Mbps

d) speedometer to Cyberjaya however gave 0.5 Mbps only

e) ping tests to international websites were around 250ms-350ms

f) a torrent download from ipt with more than 150 seeders got stuck at 0.5 Mbps only with either VPN, bolehroute or direct streamyx connection

g) upload speed to all servers anywhere were around 0.3 Mbps – 0.35 Mbps

ive concluded that something was wrong with tm’s routing so ive called up their support line earlier this evening. opened up a report about this and the technician said *probably* theres something wrong with the routing since she cant event re-set my port connection; the system would not respond. below ive got some example ;

direct connection speedtest to singapore;

direct connection speedtest to UK;

direct connection to US;

direct connection to Penang, KL and Seri Kembangan;

the odd part, speedtest to Cyberjaya;

the above results are the same with other ip ranges as i stated above.
