Asia-America Gateway submarine cable finally restored


You probably might not realise it but the undersea cable fault that crippled our internet speeds last month has finally being fixed. TM has reported that restoration works have been completed, and international internet traffic between Asia and the US should be back to normal.

The problem had occurred right after Malaysia Day and many users had been complaining of incredibly slow speeds connecting to various international sites including YouTube, Facebook and Twitter. The faulty 20,000KM high bandwidth fibre optic cable not only affected Malaysia but other operators around the region that rely on AAG for international traffic. It was earlier estimated that the issue would be restored by 6th October this week.
