31 Mar – More than a week ago, Netflix has been gradually reducing traffic in various parts of the world, starting from Europe, to ease internet capacity.
As of today, the reduction will also be implemented in Malaysia.
The reduction is expected to last for the whole of next month. It is not known yet whether other countries in the region, such as Singapore, Cambodia, Thailand and Indonesia, will also be affected but it is highly likely given current circumstances.
Similar to what was done in Europe, Netflix's traffic will be reduced by 25%. The decision to reduce traffic was not done due to local Internet Service Providers (ISP) requests but rather as a proactive move to ensure that Netflix subscribers will still be able to have the best streaming experience.
