KUALA LUMPUR, 24 SEPTEMBER 2019 – YES, the mobile 4G brand of YTL Communications and Singapore’s TPG Telecom Pte Ltd have emerged as the first Telecommunications providers in SouthEast Asia (SEA) to launch Voice-over-LTE (VoLTE) Roaming. The VoLTE roaming solution is a first in the SEA region and also another milestone for YES, who continues to chart new heights of innovation. YES emerged as the first mobile operator in Malaysia to launch VoLTE service nationwide in June 2016 and remains Malaysia’s only all IP all 4G LTE network provider.

YES, having been the catalyst of new frontier technology in the Malaysian Telecommunications industry continues to deliver many numerous industry firsts including Terragraph and Gigawire networks plus the nation’s first and most advanced nationwide VoLTE service with crystal clear HD voice calls, multi-party conferencing and simultaneous voice and data operations.

Singapore’s government having the foresight for fostering further competition and innovation in Singapore’s Telecommunications industry and through that, introduced TPG as the 4th national Telecommunications operator.

Possessing similar DNA and appetite to pave the way forward to lead the industry’s charge of the next big thing, YES and TPG are pleased to lead the initiative to setup and deploy this new VoLTE roaming service and usher in the next era of innovation for the region. TPG Singapore has emerged as the first in SEA to launch outbound VoLTE roaming with YES complementing as the first network in Malaysia, to open inbound VoLTE roaming traffic from TPG Singapore.

“VoLTE roaming can only be achieved with the collaboration, close cooperation and considerable efforts of multiple mobile operators working to give their subscribers a superior mobile experience regardless of geographical location,” said Julian Gorman, Head of APAC, GSMA. “This is an important move for the South East Asia region and we hope to see many additional operators offering similar services in the not so distant future.”

The milestone marks the many firsts of the eventual evolution of frontier telcos that continue to innovate and drive VoLTE adoption across borders. VoLTE roaming will ensure High Definition (HD) quality voice services and all the benefits of VoLTE during roaming which includes faster call connections, longer battery life and enhanced security.

TPG’s Acting CEO, Mr. Richard Tan said, “Malaysia is one of the top destinations for Singaporeans and it is natural for TPG to start there. Many of TPG subscribers can now enjoy free unlimited data roaming in Malaysia on YES network during this promotion period.”

YTL Communications’ CEO, Mr. Wing K. Lee said, “As catalyst players in both geographies, it is only natural for us to join forces in delivering a regional first. We are proud to announce the launch of the region’s first cross border VoLTE roaming where both YES and TPG customers can continue to enjoy quality LTE and VoLTE services when they roam on our networks. This new level of customer experience enhancement is a strong testament of the value of energetic catalysts like TPG and YES can add to our respective countries.”

PENANG, MALAYSIA, 18 February 2019> – YTL Communications Sdn. Bhd. announced today the launch of Terragraph market pilot in Georgetown, Penang to deliver a reliable, affordable and high-speed broadband connection to the heritage city. The deployment, supported by Facebook, would be the first large-scale market pilot in Asia and is aligned with the government’s efforts to invest in and further improve on the country’s digital infrastructure to ensure greater availability of broadband services.

Telecommunications companies, businesses, and other stakeholders are investing in infrastructure and connectivity capabilities to facilitate the adoption of bandwidth-intensive technologies in an effort to usher in the era of Industry 4.0 and encourage a digital leapfrog for Malaysia. Coverage and adoption of fixed broadband services must be further developed to scale to the country’s aspiration, with the aim to achieve broadband connections that are double the speed at half the price.

This industry-led collaboration by YTL Communications, supported by Facebook, is in line with the vision of the National Fiberisation and Connectivity Plan’s (NFCP) aim to improve broadband quality and coverage, reduce broadband price and enable Internet access for all. In addition, this also complements the “Penang 2030” vision that promotes Penang to be a Family-focused, Green and Smart State that Inspires the Nation.

Georgetown, located in a dense and urban area, is also home to one of the largest collections of pre-war buildings in Southeast Asia. The city’s legacy infrastructure and prestigious UNESCO status make it challenging to run fibre to every household, thereby limiting the availability of high-quality broadband Internet access.

The unique proposition of Terragraph enables service providers to deploy low-cost, high-speed connectivity in dense urban and suburban areas by utilizing existing street furniture. Facebook has produced a reference design for Terragraph hardware, including the tools and software needed to operate the technology, that will be leveraged for this pilot. The six-month-long market pilot will include the provision of Public WiFi and Fixed Wireless Access.

YTL Communications saw a unique opportunity to apply this innovative technology to eliminate the need to trench and disrupt a UNESCO heritage city while providing a brand-new gigabit wireless infrastructure. They first announced the intention to deploy a market pilot of Terragraph at the Telecom Infra Project Summit 2018 and turned this vision into reality within months.

“A breakthrough in technology is needed to address the need for better broadband while preserving the uniqueness of Georgetown’s proud UNESCO status,” said Wing K. Lee, Chief Executive Officer of YTL Communications. “Commencing on March 1, we expect the pilot to last up to six months, during which we will learn and plan for the commercial rollout while continuing to explore ways to harness this advanced wireless fiber technology.”

“As the pioneer of 4G in Malaysia, we have built the largest pure-4G network and provide Malaysians with the best data value pricing. The future is wireless. This pilot clearly confirms the viability of wireless as an effective last mile solution. The technical breakthrough in providing gigabit wireless using Terragraph is a preview of the exciting era of 5G.” Wing continued.

“With Terragraph, Facebook is building a robust and collaborative ecosystem of chipset vendors, manufacturers and service providers to bring high-quality connectivity to urban and suburban areas. We are excited to partner with operators like YTL Communications who are deploying Terragraph in order to bring internet connectivity to people who are unconnected or do not currently have fast or reliable access,” said Dan Rabinovitsj, Vice President of Connectivity, Facebook.

“We believe that people, no matter where they live, deserve a consistent, high-bandwidth internet experience. As Malaysia grows its digital economy, high-quality internet connectivity is essential in helping create new opportunities that can strengthen both local communities and global economies,” said Bryan Tan, Head of Connectivity Ecosystem Programs, APAC at Facebook.

 

Facebook introduced Terragraph in 2016, designed to bring gigabit speed to dense urban areas. Terragraph is the underlying technology bringing gigabit speeds to support data demand of urban residents, visitors and accelerating new smart-city services.

YES believes that we have an obligation as a bridge of technology to enable possibilities for Malaysians and it starts with an amazing message, contest and amazing offer this Malaysia Day

Starring YES ambassadors, Neelofa and Jack Lim, this video titled “Bersama Kita Bahagia” depicts a group of Malaysians from all walks of life coming together with joy and enthusiasm, to share a part of who they are by singing Chan Mali Chan, a famous, old Malaysian song by Didi & Friends. YES has put a spin on it by tweaking a part of the lyrics to make it truly Malaysian and relatable to the nation. YES believes in defining who Malaysia is as nation to come that is enabled by technology through empowerment of a song that is a fabric of our nation but redefined by the spirit of what is possible by Malaysians.

Using up our data means so much to us in browsing or surfing the web, reading and sending emails, checking social media, and downloading or uploading files and much more. With that comes the demand of higher allocations of mobile data that costs a fraction of the price but also provides seamless and fast Internet.

YES has always believed in its mission and is aligned to the vision of the government of the day and the Ministry of Communications and Multimedia to bring the promise of world class true 4G connectivity at absolutely affordable rates to every Malaysian regardless of rural, semi urban and urban centres.
