In the Name of Allah the Most Gracious and the Most Merciful.
Assalamualaikum n hi,
Alhamdulillah. MPPUTP in collaboration with
RCSU UTP had an engagement with ITMS to done clarification and to fight
for our rights as students on current internet issue that had been
bothering us since the past few weeks. We do take it seriously since we
do well – informed this is an essential tool to us as a student.
Below are some of the clarifications being made by ITMS and some
solutions that had been fully agreed among the meeting members.
1. CLARIFICATION ON CERTAIN ISSUES.
• MAXIS Tower
For now, ITMS team had been continuously pushing the MAXIS team to
supervise on the current condition that had been shut down due to HSE
purpose. InsyaAllah by the end of this year, the tower will be operating
• Internet Connection Went Down During Lightning Strike
ITMS explained that during lightning strike, the strike automatically
triggers the trip to protect the device and thus, causing the connection
to be went off all of a sudden. However, it is noted that, if there is
any Internet connection breakdown in villages, ITMS will be alerted to
that and shall fix it as soon as possible.
• Usage of ITMS Service Desk System
Should anyone of us is having problems regarding the Internet, please
do utilize the ITMS Service Desk at this link stated here http://itservicedesk.utp.edu.my/
.ITMS are ready to help you in the issue, InsyaAllah. However, please
do inform them through the link and follow the steps to done your
2. IMPLEMENTATION OF QUOTA SYSTEM OF 2GB/DAILY BASIS
For us, the implementation of the Internet quota without informing us
first-hand is unacceptable. Due to that reasons, we bring your voices
to ITMS and few solutions had been agreed with certain amendments.
• We have been informed that the Quota System had been implemented by
the ITMS due to extreme rate of downloading per usage compared to the
amount of the data provided.
• We have also been told that this
system is done in order to give equality to all students in terms of
sharing the Internet since our Internet is a sharing basis and have to
be used equally among all 6000++ students in the campus with just only
200 Mb per seconds. ITMS noticed before this there were some group of
students who are heavy users and ITMS feels that this causes unfairness
to other students who purposely need the service for their academic
• There is no limitation in the browsing and the
downloading speed on the Internet. It merely only effects on how much
the rate of internet consumption based on the quota of 2GB per daily
basis. For example, with the correct timing of using the net (Avoiding
peak hours), students can have a good speed of downloads up to 2MB
(maximum) per seconds. While, for browsing only with the same condition,
students can have up to 500 kb (maximum) per seconds just for browsing.
In other words, the speed is not capped at all for browsing and
• For students who do wish to use an unlimited
amount of quota with greater speed for their academic purpose, computer
laboratories in either Block 1 or 2 in Chancellor Complex is opened to
them. Please do use them if you want to download anything related to
your academic regardless of soft wares or any additional materials.
• As for now, ITMS is currently upgrading the system to a certain
extent of quota that is fully sufficient for students’ usage on academic
and also during leisure time. Thus, the system is actually on trial.
Hence, they welcomed any comments that are practical to be implemented
on this upcoming system.
We do hope that
with this information disseminated to all, at least we can get a glance
on how and why this system is suddenly being implemented in the campus.
Continuous collaboration between MPPUTP and RCSU.
