Somebody in the Twittersphere shared with us the leaked YES 4G price plan. There’s a picture that shows the rates that YES 4G is charging. 9 sen for 1 minute of talk-time, 1 SMS and 3MB of data.
If this is the same rate for home use, then, we can kiss YES 4G goodbye!
From this Pay as You Use pricing, 1 GB of 4G data is around RM30++. This is quite competitive, provided that the speed is as promised, 3 to 5 times faster than 3G. If not, then YTL 4G will not have the Unique Selling Point (USP) and will not dominate the mobile data industry. Hopefully, they will come out a different plan for home users.
The call rate and SMS rate for YES 4G is very good but the information is quite vague. 9 sen for 1 minute call & 1 SMS is applicable to YES 4G networks or to other mobile networks too. This is very attractive and YTL did say in their website that they will not tie you down with plans or contracts.
Let’s keep our fingers crossed and wait until the official launching of YTL 4G mobile internet with voice on this November 19th 2010 (Friday).
What’s your say?
