YES! 1st 4G Mobile Internet in The World @ YTL Communications!

AMAZING Things Happen When You Say YES!

I was driving pass Caltex petrol station near eGate, Penang & Tesco Jelutong, when I noticed a big billboard that says that a new 4G mobile internet network with voice will be coming soon and a big YES.

The billboard looked something like this.

That caught my attention and I checked out their website and I was suprised and quite impressed with what YTL Communications can offer us.

I will highlight some of the features of their new 4G mobile internet network, the rest you can get the information from their website.

3 to 5 times faster than 3G network.
This is interesting, hopefully YTL lives up to the hype.

Stay connected to Internet when you are travelling from North to South or West to East.
I have been waiting for this for long time. Last time when I was driving down to KL, I tried to use my P1 Wimax modem in the car to connect to Internet but there’s no coverage. 🙁

No more multiple plans and expensive rates. You pay for what you use.
This one is tricky. Sometimes a plan is cheaper than pay-per-use. Let’s see how YTL will work out the prices. Up to date, there’s no information on the prices or rates. Wait for their Grand Launch on 19th November 2010.

No string attached. No commitment fees or contracts to enjoy lower rates.
If YTL 4G does it right this time, Maxis, Digi, Celcom & P1 will have a hard time.

The best deal in town.
YTL mentioned that we only have to pay half of what we are paying now and even cheaper than paying the tolls or coffee. Will my dream come true?

No more SIM cards.
That’s some thing special. All you need to use YES 4G mobile network is your YES ID and password.

Connect as many devices as you like, all at the same time.
You can use YES 4G in all devices but not on the same type devices. Which means you can use YES 4G in ONE Handphone, ONE Laptop, ONE desktop computer only.

Cloud synchronising.
YES makes our life easier with a unified address book that synchronises all your contacts online, in the cloud. You can access all your contacts from any deivce, any time.

No capping or throttling.
This one YTL is doing it right unlike P1. What’s the point of having high speed internet but there’s capping. YES to YTL.

No expiry dates.
That’s good news for prepaid users.

Affordable calls when you are away.
You only need an Internet connection when you are overseas to call to Malaysians numbers at local call rates. Now this is cool!

YES 4G devices for USB, MiFi, Desktop Modem & 4G Phone. Their USB 4G Modem is called YES Go and their MiFi device is called YES Huddle. The 4G phone will be called YES Buzz and its all in one home modem with voice and WiFi is called YES Zoom. Very simple names.

YTL spent US$850 million on the YES 4G network, buying base stations from Samsung, CISCO & AT&T. So they are able to cover 65% of Malaysian population for a start. They claim that their coverage is even wider than P1. Hopefully they will cover the area of my house in Penang.

I’m YES-cited!

I am really looking forward for YTL’s 1st 4G Mobile Network with Voice, YES! And really hope that they lived up to all Malaysian expectations.

No more slow or down Streamyx or wondering where to face your modem, be it north or south. YES! 4G is the future.

I have registered my email account name and my 018-XXXXXXX number. What about you?

I hope that YTL will give me a chance to review YES devices and YES 4G. Thanks.

    certainly most anticipated broadband.

    a real competitor. no capping/throttling is a very daring claim.

    P1 will go bankrupt because it relies on their 12-month contract for business, because everybody wants to terminate it

  2. admin says:

    Agreed! certainly a strong competitor if YTL 4G lives up to their hype. P1 is a certainly a goner unless they change too. Malaysia’s broadband landscape will certainly change a lot after the 19th November 2010, the official launching of YTL’s TES 4G Mobile Internet with Voice. Let’s wait and see. I will keep my fingers crossed for now.

    This one you are right!!

    This one YTL is doing it right unlike P1. What’s the point of having high speed internet but there’s capping. YES to YTL.

  4. Yayyah says:

    Ermm.. juz wonder.. to use this 4g service, are we need to change our fon to 4 G support?

  5. admin says:

    You are correct partially. We cannot change our current phone to 4G support but you need to have/buy handphones which has 4G support. The basic phone that YTL is offering is the Buzz, a basic 4 phone. I really hope that HTC Evo 4G will come to Malaysia. It’s a great phone, better than iPhone 4.

  6. admin says:

    Very true. That’s one thing P1 had done wrong. Now I am counting the days when YES will be launched.

  7. roy says:

    just wondering do i need to pay anything after i register for YES? just afraid after register, want to terminate will be charged for registration fee bla bla bla. YES i know there is no contract but if they have something like trial period where we can use their services with no cost for certain period of time, then i will say YES, i register.

  8. admin says:

    Don’t worry about that. YTL YES 4G has not enough information from us to effect a contract. This registration is sort of like a registration of interest like Maxis and Digi before they launch iPhone 4.
    YTL YES 4G promise us that they will be no contract but still, they need us to submit an application form to enable us to use the service, right?
    About the trial period, I haven’t read or hear anything about it. If there is a free trial period, then that’s a good news for all Malaysians. Cheers.
    By the way, have you registered? Quickly register your favorite number but it seems that all the good good numbers have been reserved by YTL for the VIPs and VVIPs.

  9. ivan says:

    Sad for the new what i heard today cause the YES 4G was listing out the price already what i saw is RM0.09/3MB that mean is expensive for me … I using 20GB per/month so what i calculate the total for 20GB was total RM599*…WOW … shock for that …YES TO SERVICE, NO TO PRICE =,= whee

  10. admin says:

    Don’t worry. Maybe 9 sen for 3 MB rate for YES 4G is only for mobile internet and YTL might come out with a different plan than this? Let’s pray and hopefully that YTL doesn’t make us disappointed again after the P1 thing!

  11. bazuki says:

    I have got a “Go” yesterday.

    I tried to install the 4G Network Manager, but all I got was an error message saying “InstallScript Setup Launcher has encountered a problem and needs to close.”

    I tried on two different laptops and I got the same error message.

    I was very much looking forward to it.

  12. johnkhor says:

    Congratulations, bazuki! I am really looking forward for someone who has a hand on the YES devices. That’s bad. Try to email back to YES 4G or go to their Facebook fanpage or Twitter and leave them a comment, it’s faster that way.
    Can you please email me your speed test picture to let me know how fast YES 4G really is? I am so anxious and excited.

  13. Hunter says:

    YTL Yes = Bad

    1 cheat your money , all have you pay and can’t use
    2 call centre all dead , call all the way no answer and ask you list down your number but never call back to you.
    3 Go to “KL Centre” to ask for help they said its something problem with yes system , we will call you tonight or tomorrow for sure to explanations, few day no one call from them.
    4 Log on to “yes.my” , just press all the link have to wait 1hour or more than that and alway came out “server error”
    5 super waste time and super bad service.

    Don’t remove this, because this is a complaint, till you fixed the problem.

  14. johnkhor says:

    Haha. Hunter, I am not YTL. So, no point you file a complain with me. I will not remove the comment. Don’t worry. You are free to leave any comment as long as it’s not offensive or full with obscenities. Yeah. I read in the Internet that’s there’s many issues with everything else except the speed. It’s damn fast! Anyhow, the 1st impression that YES 4G gave us was quite bad. Server down. Website down and everything also down. Now, we just have to see how YTL rebounds back!

  15. Tan says:

    YES from YTL is really lousy! First, try calling their Call Centre – everyone there is untrained and tells you all kinds of bullshit! I wasted my money buying the ZOOM Wifi Router (RM 399)! I can’t even call overseas, and the Call Centre even insisted that I dial the overseas number straightaway – I argued with her that all overseas number need to have a prefix, otherwise how would you differentiate a local number from an overseas number? And don’t be fooled by you pay for what you use – you’ll end up paying even more!

  16. Tan says:

    Next, I tried calling from the PC – worse! Won’t even dial! Aarrghh! I should have known! Another Malaysian made B.S.!

  17. Gary says:

    hmmm tan r u sure u know how to use the system ? i sure hav no probs wit mine at all !

  18. Razli Yahya says:

    YES very expensive for internet

  19. Razli Yahya says:

    Yes is expensive for internet RM68 just for 3G..P1 offer 15G RM99.00 a month.

  20. johnkhor says:

    Huh?

    First of all, I agree that Yes 4G is expensive when you have high data consumption but it’s really cheap and has fast reliable speed when you use it for mobile usage or casual usage when you are out of the house. With the current promotion, I still don’t recommend people to use Yes 4G at home. And another thing, Yes is not 3G, it’s 4G.

  21. farkhan says:

    may i know what is the Dial Number and APN for setting my wireless router?

  22. johnkhor says:

    Hi,

    I am sorry. I also don’t know. Can’t help you. Maybe call Yes Helpline?

  23. No to Yes4G! says:

    Yes 4G has teribble customer service on top of their poor signal coverage. I have been denied the right as a consumer to terminate my 2-year contract although my the 4G signal is very weak causing intermittent disconnections.

  24. mike says:

    i am considering yes service and doing some online research to validate whether i should sign up…..and from what i read, i am a bit confused…..so i can use 4g network on my 3g phone just by signing up and registering a yes id on the phone? So, i am accessing their 4g network on my device thru my 3g simcard or exisiting wifi connection? how is that possible?

  25. johnkhor says:

    Hi Mike,

    You can’t use from your phone by signing up a Yes ID. You need a MiFi or their modem to connect to their network. Unless you purchase their Yes4G smartphone, then you can directly connect to their Yes4G network, if I am not wrong. Hope this helps?
