Expansive sales network of over 37 authorised retailers and distributors to serve growing demands by internet hungry customers in East Coast

Kuantan, October 22, 2011 – Yes, one of the most advanced 4G networks in the world, today announced that it has expanded its sales network to Malaysia’s East Coast to meet a growing demand for mobile internet services in the region. The Yes sales network comprising over 37 authorised retailers and distributors will support its customers in Pahang, Terengganu and Kelantan to help boost broadband penetration in outlying cities and towns within these states.

In conjunction with the announcement, Yes also launched its first official East Coast outlet in East Coast Mall, Kuantan, Pahang. The fully operational outlet located on the second floor of the mall comes complete with demo stations and registration counters and is opened seven days a week from 10am to 10pm. Customers can look forward to experiencing true 4G performance that is three to five times faster than 3G, along with a host of other innovative services including Yes’s unique unified communications solution.

Unlike conventional mobile networks, Yes’s unified communications solution replaces physical SIM cards with a single user ID to offer subscribers seamless connectivity across multiple devices concurrently. The Yes service allows subscribers to be contacted on any device, whether mobile phone or computer using just one single 018 number. This innovation is the first of its kind in Malaysia and the world.

“I am tremendously delighted that with the expansion of our sales network and the launch of our first ever East Coast outlet Yes is now able to serve even more Malaysians with our advanced 4G network. We are looking forward to bringing world class mobile Internet, telephony and more to enable east coast cities with a level playing field to fundamentally improve the way people live, work and play. With a network that performances three to five times faster than any 3G networks and with some of the most competitive price points in the industry, this marks another significant milestone in enabling Malaysia’s goal of transforming into a high-income economy. No other operator in Malaysia can offer the same performance or value!” said Wing K. Lee, CEO, YTL Communications.

In November 2010, Yes launched its 4G mobile Internet with voice service on a nationwide scale. With its network spanning over 65% of Malaysia’s population, the company has deployed over 2,000 base stations with more than 2,000 others to be built by 2012. Yes is the only wireless operator that can offer uninterrupted 4G data and voice connectivity along the full 966km span of the North-South Expressway – Malaysia’s longest highway.

Globally recognized at the Broadband World Forum 2011 in Paris recently, Yes won the prestigious Broadband InfoVision Awards 2011 under the ‘Best New Service’ category. This is a strong validation of the innovation YTL Communications is pioneering.

In addition to expanding its sales network to serve key markets beyond West Coast, Yes is also planning to supplement its current offerings with new plans and packages that make its world-class services even more affordable to markets outside urban centres. Yes is confident that the new soon-to-be released packages will serve as a catalyst for Malaysians outside these markets to adopt true broadband services that will improve their lives.

“East Coast market is very important to us. We see a lot of potential for growth in these 3 states. There is also an increasing awareness and demand for internet, especially for high performance broadband. At the same time, we also understand that offering these world-class services at competitive price point is crucial to make Mobile Internet enticing and a true pathway to close the digital divide.” Mr. Lee concluded.
