I live right in the centre of the city, in the Bukit Bintang area. This condo building has a fibre connection to TM, with its own DSLAM in the basement. That eliminates problems with the copper wire that plague some neighbourhoods and especially houses. But problems with their internal network and international links still persist, of course.
I'm fortunate enough to have a friend who set me up with a VPN connection via his office in Singapore (which I wasn't using for those speed tests I posted earlier). When Streamyx is getting on my nerves I activate that, and then I almost always get maximum speed (4096/512) to everywhere worldwide. I believe there are some fairly affordable commercial VPN providers out there, in the range of RM30/month. Assuming you are not having problems with your copper, then adding that to your Streamyx connection ought to make for a pretty happy experience.
