YES 4G is in Penang already!
Yeah! It’s finally here. Last few weeks ago, I was thinking on how to save my telecommunication bills and how to have mobile internet on the go.
My current spending on broadband:
P1 Wimax 1.2MB package: RM99/month. (for my home)
TM Stremyx 1.0MB package: RM68/month. (for my business)
DiGi Internet Lite 300MB package: RM33/month. (for my girlfriend’s iPhone 3GS)
That’s a total of RM200 spent on broadband alone. And I don’t even earn that much every month from the Internet. 🙁
That’s why I have been thinking very hard on how to save my broadband bills and also how to get Internet mobile (I need to travel a lot and use Internet a lot at different locations everyday since I have a few centers to supervise.) I checked on Maxis, Celcom, DiGi & P1 for their package on mobile Internet. Not so attractive at all. Then, suddenly I remembered YES 4G.
I checked their website for their resellers. And what do I have? There’s no resellers in Penang listed in their website. When I saw that, my mind was full with #@#%$#^%$%^ because Penang is one of the top consumers for Internet and also one of the top producing states (according to Lim Guan Eng, we are the top 4 contributor of taxes to the Government.) and no YES 4G. This is so shameful.
That was a few weeks ago. Suddenly I saw this:
YES in Penang @ Tech Central, theStar.
So, I quickly checked their YES 4G website and I found this.
YES 4G finally has resellers in Penang and also a YES Store in Queensbay Mall this coming April 2011.
Last few weeks ago, there’s no Penang at all in YES 4G Retail Partners. That’s why I am frustated!
Now, there all 31 resellers of YES 4G in Penang & Mainland.
YTL Communications are organizing a few roadshows around Penang Island before opening up a YES Store in Queensbay Mall around April 2011. Hopefully YTL Communications will invite me to the opening of YES Store as a media guest. If you are one of the YTL PR Officer, please remember to send me an invite ya!!!
The roadshows are as below:

I might be switching to YES 4G this coming month to save on my broadband bills. Let’s see. 😛
If you have already made the switch, share your experience with me. 🙂
good to know that YES is in penang now @ gurney plaza,today is the last day,..faster get one John hehe…
Haha. Yeah! Penang Rocks! I missed their 1st roadshow. Might be going for the next YES 4G roadshow at Queensbay Mall, Penang. I am planning to cut my P1 (RM99/month) and subscribe to TM Streamyx 384kbps (RM68/month) and YES 4G (RM30/month). That saves me RM1 but it gives me mobility.
hi john, been using yes 4g for a month now, and i have to say the speeds are awesome! i took a bus up to penang last weekend and i could surf youtube all the way there on the NS Highway 🙂
plus the new valuepacks released today are very attractive with free calls and sms
I will be going for their Queensbay Mall YES 4G roadshow to check out their offers and I might be using YES 4G. Thanks for leaving a comment. It really helps!
there is very poor Yes connectivity at N-Park condo near USM, with 1000 residents including USM undergraduates the service is below par. Kindly check Yes coverage to confirm my internet concern on this matter. I believe yes would be able to make this a priority project in the near future that is in 2014

I will try to test Yes 4G speed at N Park condominiums. I am not directly linked to Yes 4G, so I am not sure I am able to impact much but I will definitely do a speed test. 🙂
