Streamyx is getting faster

The new Asia-America Gateway (AAG) undersea fiber optic cable between Southeast Asia and the United States will be commercially available starting tomorrow.
The US500 million project is lead by TM plus 18 parties including AT&T Inc., Bayan, Bharti, BT Global Network Services, CAT Telecom, ETPI, FPT Telecom, the Government of Brunei Darussalam, PT Indosat, PLDT, Saigon Postel Corporation, StarHub, Telcotech, TELKOM Indonesia, Telstra, TNZL, Viettel, and VNPT.

This is the first submarine cable system linking Southeast Asia directly to the United States. It will connect 10 locations in eight countries across the Asia Pacific region, namely Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Brunei, Hong Kong, the Philippines, Vietnam, Guam and Hawaii with the US West Coast.

The 20,000 kilometre-long cable system is free from natural disasters like earthquakes and tsunamis and will have a capacity of 480 Gigabits per second. If you experience faster Internet speed and less buffering on Youtube during the past few months on Streamyx, now you know why.
Hopefully, other ISPs like Celcom, Maxis, DiGi and P1 will utilise this new cable system.

It says it will be faster. See like no different my download speed only less than 20.00 KB like a turtle only. It says it can reach 480 GB but also maximum is 100KB even if we buy 1MB plan.

That why in Malaysia they should have a new and bigger competitor in the market so that it can challenge streamyx, so they can improve then giving crap speed day and night. So their next big challenger is p1 Wimax hope they can be better than streamyx in this coming years.
