TM Streamyx Slowdown Due To Faulty AAG Link – A little update to you guys who are using Streamyx and wondering why downloads from most of the US server appears to be slower than usual is that the AAG (Asia-America Gateway) link is down again. You are probably experiencing speed like being throttled.

I use the Streamyx 1Mbps plan and suspected something wrong with the speed. The speed was normally 110-160kbps download, but was slowed until 20-40kbps which was really bad. After some Googling online, it’s actually the cable fault on the AAG link.

What pissed me off is that the restoration will be done by 29 October! Come on, it’s 16 October today and there’s like more than 10 days to go. I am wondering how can I complete my downloads! A big company, but take such a long time to restore, and there’s no backup link. You know, this is not the first time that the AAG is having a problem, there’s few same thing before.
