I cannot access Facebook from the TM Streamyx account for last few days, but it’s ok with Wifi via Unifi.
Another possibility is local Wifi via Streamyx is configured to block out Facebook.
Malaysia connected to internet in 1993 via Jaring, the first in South East Asia and also among the few in Asia.
Sadly to say the present internet connectivity speed in Malaysia is at the bottom in South East Asia.
Malaysia is in the bottom top 10 in Google download speed benchmarking survey for 50 countries. The funny thing is Singapore is also in the bottom 10 for mobile downloading speed, but let wait and see how Singapore improving its internet mobile infrastructure in next 3 years.
Kiasuland seems is complacent also after attaining the richest nation status in the world.
China and Vietnam are well above Malaysia in desktop and mobile internet performamce.

1 Gigabit/s broadband package is sold at 199 Hong Kong dollars or 78.5 Ringgit.
Most of us are either to pay RM88 for 1 Megabit/s Streamyx and RM150 for 5 Megabits/s Unifi.
Hong Kong people have enjoyed 1000 time faster speed than 1M Streamyx at a slightly cheaper price. When Malaysians can enjoy 1G broadband service? I guess not earlier than 2020.
More insulting is Vietnam broadband service is also faster than Malaysia, but at the half price we paid to TM.
Wanna commit suicide after reading this post?
Recommendation for this post: Vote out BN
Instead of subscribing to Unifi broadband after terminated a 8-year old Streamyx broadband, I have decided to stop subscribing Unifi broadband service.
The reason is Celcom sent me a lawyer letter for RM 70++ due payment which I have disputed the payment was settled.
Since Celcom and its parent company, TM is a monopolized broadband service provider in Cheras. Thus, say NO to Unifi is only legal protest I can make.
Anyway, I subscribed to Digi 3G’s RM30 monthly package for internet backup and also to keep RM500++ credit prepaid phone in active.
RM150 saved from Unifi can be better used for my breakfast expenses at a nearby Malay restaurant with free WIFI service. I can still access internet from my resident through 3G and hacked wifi channel. [Reminder: Wifi hacking is illegal in Malaysia.]
The annual saving is RM150 X 12 = RM1800. RM1800 is small for BN rich cronies, but it’s a big money for many poor families.
Another feasible option is sharing broadband bandwidth with your neighbors. Let say three families in a row share a Unifi account, each family can save RM100 per month or RM1200 per year. RM1200 can buy a mid-end smartphone or buy reading books for your kid.
If 100,000 families follows my advice, TM will losing RM 120 million revenue per year.
Why you are waiting for?
I show you two hard evidences from the Celcom customer service I have collected today.
Maxis, uMobile and Celcom are in my blacklist now, Digi is only telco in my shopping cart.
1. Celcom customer support email is always dead.
2. Feedback form in the Celcom online customer service also dead.
