Internet connectivity speed in Malaysia seems to have been restored to normal today after about two weeks of patchy service.

The fault was due to problems detected on the Asia-America Gateway (AAG) submarine cable system at a segment near the Philippines linking Malaysia to the US and North Asia, Telekom Malaysia Bhd (TM) had announced.

“This information was relayed to us by the consortium that manages and maintains the Asia-America Gateway submarine cable system (in which TM is a part of).”

While the problem had initially been scheduled to have been fixed earlier, TM had announced on Monday that the completion date had been postponed to today “due to challenging sea conditions and additional repairs required”.
