It’s no news that Malaysia is a bit of a third-world country when it comes to Internet connectivity. Basically the option in most locations is an utterly useless “Streamyx” connection (in most places 1.5 Mbps).
The Streamyx ADSL sucks big time. While, after running the service for something like 8 years, the “last mile” is getting reasonably stable, the connection to the world is ridiculously slow. Downloading from US or Europe I would rarely get more than 30-40 kB/sec which is less than 1/3 of what a line like that aught to be capable of.
