Penang Says Yes To The Fastest 4G Mobile Internet With Voice



Penang, 24th February 2011 - Yes, the Fastest 4G Mobile Internet Service with Voice, powered by YTL, today announced that starting immediately, Penangites can get their hands on cool Yes 4G devices and start enjoying the power of truly converged mobile communications, combining wireless 4G broadband at speeds up to five times faster than 3G with voice/IM/SMS all in one account.


Yes, the largest and fastest growing 4G mobile Internet network in Malaysia now empowers Penangites too!


As of today, Yes, has the most extensive 4G coverage in Penang, encompassing most of the populated areas in the island and the state's mainland. For the full Yes coverage map, please visit http://www.yes.my/support/coverage

Yes, offers the industry's lowest rates - up to nine times lower than current prepaid mobile Internet and voices packages. On top of that, Yes does away with separate, siloed plans for voice, mobile Internet and mobile broadband, and combines everything in one simple integrated plan that offers consumers the complete freedom to choose how they want to spend their airtime, as long as they spend a minimum of RM30. Pay-as-you-use at just 9 sen for 3MB of data, 1 minute of calls or 1 SMS. Yes also offers up to 30% rebate to power users who consume over 4GB worth of data a month. This effectively reduces the already attractive rates to as low as 2 sen per MB or RM20 per GB.

The commercial availability of Yes in Penang is a continuation of YTL's promise to deliver the most advanced converged 4G network throughout West Malaysia. The network has an extensive coverage and for the first time ever enables mobile internet coverage along the North South Highway - the country's longest highway.

"Yes is tremendously happy to bring the power of true mobile convergence to the people of Penang! Since our official launch on November 19, 2010, our Yes Stores and our IT partner stores have received overwhelming response from eager consumers who want to experience the most advanced wireless network in the world. We are very grateful that people understand our vision for Yes and are very receptive of it," said Wing K. Lee, CEO of YTL Communications Sdn Bhd. "With Yes, whether you are stationary or on a moving vehicle, you only need one account to surf from any device, make phone calls, SMS, IM, video conference and even make phone calls from your house phone. That's the real power of convergence."

Penangites can immediately bring home the Yes Huddle - Malaysia's first 4G MiFi and an instant mobile hotspot for up to four people and the Yes Go - the world's slimmest and most advanced 4G USB dongle. The Yes Zoom - the 4G WiFi router designed for home and office use and the Yes Buzz - the world's first 4G cloud phone will be available for purchase in March 2011.

To give Penangites the ability to test drive the truly innovative and powerful features of Yes, with the opportunity to register and purchase on the spot, Yes will hold a number of road shows around Penang, with the first one taking place at Gurney Plaza from February 24 to 27. The Yes road shows are the pre-cursor to the opening of the first Yes Store in Penang targeted in April 2011 at Queensbay Mall. Yes targets to have a complete sales network in Penang with over 32 IT partners on the island and mainland later this year.

Yes has also announced in January that its 4G network now covers all 240 hectares of Universiti Sains Malaysia's (USM) main campus, allowing its 20,000 students to connect to the 4G network. Under this Education Partner Program (EPP), USM students get 300MB free usage per month for 3 years.

"Penang is an island state that is always at the forefront of technology and innovation. It's no wonder that many have dubbed this wonderful island the Silicon Valley of Malaysia. It's only befitting that its people have the most advanced, converged 4G mobile internet and communications technology in the world" Lee concluded.
