DiGi recently announced its Kg IFA (Internet For All) vision to bring high speed internet to rural villages, and is kicking things off in Kg Gong Chengal, Kemaman.

As you might have heard, TM today has launched its own 4G broadband service which is called TMgo in Alor Setar, Kedah. While we are still working to provide you plenty of details regarding the new service, we have managed to do a quick speed test using TMgo LTE USB dongle which is a D-Link DWM-221 as shown above.
To determine the speed during our test, we utilized the ever popular Ookla SpeedTest web platform and targets selected test servers in Malaysia as well as abroad.
Update: TM has rectified the issue and all connections should have returned to normal.
TM’s Twitter account has made it known that some subscribers to UniFi and Streamyx may be experiencing slow connections due to congestion of two DNS. The cause of this congestion is still as of yet unknown, although the ISP has promised that its engineers are currently looking into the problem.
