At the same time the Yes Altitude, the newest high quality Android device developed by Yes, was unveiled as the most affordable VoLTE smartphone in the Malaysian market, allowing more consumers to access high speed LTE internet.

The Minister of Communications and Multimedia Malaysia YB Datuk Seri Panglima (Dr) Salleh Said Keruak officiated the launch of the all-new Yes 4G LTE network and Yes Altitude smartphone, along with YTL Corporation Berhad Chairman YBhg Tan Sri Dato' Seri Panglima (Dr) Yeoh Tiong Lay.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our business partners for making this day a reality."

"I am pleased to note that YTL has invested RM4 billion to bring new communications solutions and technologies to Malaysia by building not only one, but two 4G networks, namely the WiMax and LTE networks," Datuk Seri Panglima (Dr) Salleh Said Keruak said when officiating the launch.

"All this augurs well for the nation's future and will certainly accelerate the achievement of the Government's objective to increase national broadband penetration and help reduce the cost of devices and utilization charges to make it more affordable to all consumers. This will also further help close the digital divide between urban and rural communities."

CEO of YTL Communications Wing K Lee enthused about building the most advanced 4G LTE network on top of the existing Yes 4G Broadband network that has reached a nationwide footprint in Malaysia. "We started the journey with 4G Mobile Broadband and are now excited to complete the journey with the launch of 4G LTE together with the country's first VoLTE service. We are proud to help Malaysia leapfrog to a high income economy through the provision of these new services," he said.

Wing K Lee added, "We are also proud to launch the country's first "Double Data" bucket price plan that allows all users access to both 4G LTE and 4G broadband networks with a single service plan. With our amazing plan at RM70 per month, customers will get 24GB of data (16GB of 4G LTE and 8GB of 4G Broadband) complete with a free Yes Altitude phone. There is simply no comparable offer from any other telco in Malaysia."

With the "Double Data" feature of Yes 4G plans, whether consumers prefer to have more 4G LTE data for smartphones, or more 4G Broadband data for tablets or laptops, the new Yes LTE plans will cater to the full spectrum of user needs.
