Malaysia Internet will be slow until Sunday

24 04 2010

Telekom Malaysia Bhd (TM) says there will be internet services disruption due to cable works on the Southeast Asia-Middle East-Western Europe (SMW4).

TM’s consortium members have detected a cable fault on the SMW4 submarine cable network between Alexandria in Egypt and Palermo in Italy linking Malaysia to Europe and the United States (US).

“The consortium will be carrying out repair works on site on Saturday, April 24, 2010 and it is expected to be completed on Sunday, May 2, 2010,” it said in a statement today.

During the restoration process, there will be some interruption to the traffic to Europe and the US carried through that cable.

“TM is taking active steps to minimize disruptions, we have added additional links on other routes and coordinated with other international carriers in order to provide additional bandwidth for our customers,” it explained.

TM also said despite these initiatives, customers using Internet services nationwide may experience some degree of service degradation such as slow browsing while accessing international websites.

“Customers using Virtual Private Network (VPN) and other critical business applications linked to Europe and the US will be assured minimal degradation of service, if any,” TM said.

Adding further, TM said it will provide necessary updates on the progress of the restoration works.

Customers can call TM at 100 and select ‘Technical Assistance’ or e-mail at <!– var prefix = 'mailto:'; var suffix = ''; var attribs = ''; var path = 'hr' + 'ef' + '='; var addy25613 = 'help' + '@'; addy25613 = addy25613 + 'tm' + '.' + 'com' + '.' + 'my'; document.write( '‘ ); document.write( addy25613 ); document.write( ” ); //–> // < ![CDATA[

Big ship = big hosting disk space

22 04 2010

Imagine the hosting disk space is the size of the ship

If you have a lot of passengers (the webpages), then u need a big ship (large disk space)

If you only have a few passengers, u can still take a big ship but it will be a waste on the diesel (the money) and the space.

Always determine how much disk space you might need.

99% of the websites using less than 2GB disk space for the web contents.

Most of the time, the emails use most of the disk space. So you can consider using free email service such as Gmail.

Therefore, you should think that the more disk space the better. You should consider the hosting server’s performance and how well it is managed by the hosting company.

And, the price should be reasonable.





If you have a small website

22 04 2010

If you have a website, let say, 5 web pages in HTML/JavaScript/Flash :

  1. Home
  2. About Us
  3. Products & Services
  4. Contact Info / Contact Form
  5. Useful Links

Do you need a 300GB disk space??? Do you need unlimited bandwidth?

Certainly not.

All you need maybe just a few MB (MegaBytes) disk space, equivalent to a few diskettes only.

Therefore, the most suitable and cost effective way to host your website is the KKBOSS Free Web Hosting.

Just pay RM50 for the domain name ( a .com ) for a year. Then KKBOSS will give you 1GB free disk space to upload and host your website.

You may search your domain name available or not at https://kkboss.files.wordpress.com/2010/04/small-ship1.jpgproducts-services/check-domain-name

As long as you don’t use database, your website will run as good as you pay few hundreds in another hosting company.

Contact KKBOSS (support@kkboss.com) or SMS to +60168365333 to find out more.

PETALING JAYA: After the excitement of Telekom Malaysia unveiling UniFi, its high-speed broadband service that offers Internet speeds of up to 20 megabits per second (Mbps), the bubble burst for many consumers here.

Some are disappointed over what they feel are expensive charges for the packages for home users: RM149 for 5Mbps, RM199 for 10Mbps, and RM249 for 20Mbps.

In Singapore, a 100Mbps service – which is 5 times the speed of a 20Mbps connection – only costs about RM200.

But the real disappointment is the realisation that the UniFi packages have a cap on the amount of data that can be downloaded.

The consumers bristled when they learned that the 5Mbps service is capped at 60GB of data per month. The 10Mbps service is capped at 90GB while the 20Mbps service has a 120GB cap.

They were even more disappointed to learn that the data download caps are calculated on a daily basis.

Consumers were further horrified to learn that if they exceeded their daily download limit, their high-speed broadband connections would be throttled down to about 10% of the purchased speed.

Telekom Malaysia CEO Datuk Zamzamzairani Mohd Isa said at a press conference to announce the UniFi pricing yesterday that the measures were part of its Fair Usage Policy.

“This policy is a standard industry practice to ensure that all subscribers get to enjoy the same web surfing quality,” he said.

So, do you think you can watch the IPTV as shown below???

I think after watch IPTV for a few days (the maximum), your HSBB will become LSBB (Low Speed BroadBand) because you break the rules in TM’s Fair Usage Policy (FUP).

What is VoIP ?

  • a method for taking analog audio signals, like the kind you hear when you talk on the phone, and turning them into digital data that can be transmitted over the Internet.
  • also means VoIP can turn a standard Internet connection into a way to place free phone calls.
  • to make Internet phone calls and bypassing the phone company (and its charges) entirely.
