Telekom Malaysia Berhad (TM) wishes to inform that a fault has been detected on the Asia-America Gateway (AAG) submarine cable system at a segment near the Philippines linking Malaysia to the United States and North Asia. 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).

We have immediately taken pro-active steps to optimise our network to reduce congestion by diverting traffic to alternative routes, thus, minimising the impact to our users.

Works to restore the AAG cable system involves the concerted efforts of all consortium members, and is expected to begin on Saturday, 31 January 2015. In ideal conditions, the restoration work is expected to be completed on Saturday, 7 February 2015,subject to sea conditions, the identification of the actual location of the fault and the challenges presented working at great sea depths and pressure.  

During this period, Internet users may experience intermittent slow browsing and high latency while accessing international websites mainly hosted in the United States (US), North Asia and Europe.
