“At YTL Group, we believe that business needs to be an agent for positive change. The launch of Yes gives people an affordable, converged, high speed data and voice service, whatever their income group or location,” said Tan Sri (Dr.) Francis Yeoh, Managing Director, YTL Corporation Berhad & Executive Chairman of YTL Communications.

Expanding on the service, he continued, “Uniquely, every Yes account comes with high speed Internet access and a phone number, making the convergence of data and voice seamless. Our subscribers will not only have high speed mobile data access but will also enjoy voice, online chat and SMS services that can be accessed from anywhere in the world through the Internet. Malaysians travelling abroad can keep in touch with friends and family at home through Yes at local rates and without worrying about roaming charges.”

“Today’s launch marks the starting point of Malaysia’s progress towards entering a truly connected digital age and we’re excited to be in the driving seat of this revolution,” said Wing Lee, CEO of YTL Communications Sdn Bhd. “We looked into every aspect of the current mobile communications situation in the country and we have raised the bar on all fronts. Today, we say yes to all possibilities and to continuing to bring amazing experiences to everyone using the Yes service.”

Yes raises the bar for innovation in connectivity, fees and devices.

Yes Enables Connections
At launch, 65% of the population in Peninsula Malaysia will enjoy the fastest mobile Internet service with voice via the Yes 4G network. Additionally, the innovative communications services offered by Yes Life will be available to everyone with an Internet connection across the globe.

Yes Enables Access
Offering the industry’s lowest rates – up to three times lower than current prepaid mobile Internet and voices packages – Yes does away with separate, siloed plans for voice, mobile Internet and mobile broadband, and combines everything in one simple integrated plan that offers consumers the complete freedom to choose how they want to spend their money – Pay-as-you-go at just USD0.02 for 3MB of data, 1 minute of calls or 1 SMS.

Yes also offers up to 30% rebate to power users who consume high amounts of data. This reduces the already attractive rates further while giving users the power to self-manage by setting temporary data caps and triggering automated warnings at specified levels, all without throttling.

Yes Partners for Success
Some of the world’s best and brightest, such as Clearwire, Samsung, Intel, Cisco, GCT, IBM, Oracle, Aricent, and Xchanging, to mention a few, have contributed to Yes to make sure real value is brought to customers. For example, Yes is a SIM-less service that comes with a user ID and a telephone number that works across all devices. This SIM-less service together with Yes Life – a unified communications application that is at the heart of Yes, effectively turns any device that connects to the Internet, into a phone. Together, they allow for a number of devices to be simultaneously connected to the network, giving users the freedom to choose to receive a call on a mobile phone when in Malaysia, through a PC when in New York, or a notebook at an airport lounge.

At the launch, YTL Communications and Samsung also announced the introduction of the world’s first all-4G mobile phone. The mobile phone, called the Yes Buzz will complete the range of powerful and affordable Yes 4G devices including, the Yes Huddle – Malaysia’s first 4G mobile router that can connect up to five devices to the Yes 4G network simultaneously, the world’s slimmest and most advanced 4G USB dongle called the Yes Go and the Yes Zoom – the 4G WiFi router designed for home and office use.
