- Partnered with device brands to put 5G in the hands of Malaysians
- To bring down data prices offering faster speeds
YTL Communications’ Yes has launched its 5G wireless service to Malaysia, which the company claimed will pave the way the country to experience the offerings anytime, anywhere.
In a statement, the service provider said it has revealed its service dubbed "5G for All" which includes strategic device partnerships that put 5G enabled phones into the hands of customers absolutely free when they sign up.
Yeoh Seok Hong, managing director of YTL Communications Sdn Bhd, claimed the company became the nation’s first telco to offer 5G five months ago.
“Today marks another major milestone as we launch the next phase of our journey in enabling all Malaysians to have easy access to 5G plans.
“With prices of goods increasing under the current inflationary climate, we are instead bringing down data prices by 300% to a mere US$0.06 (RM0.30) per GB with our newest data and free device plans whilst offering speeds that are 20x faster,” said Yeoh.
He claimed that "5G for All" is Yes’s commitment to provide affordable 5G services and solutions for the benefit of every Malaysian.
Yes said the Infinite and Infinite+ mobile plans goes beyond the unlimited plans currently available in the market by offering service experience without any throttling of speed.
At an average price of US$0.06 (RM0.30) per GB, these plans are 300% cheaper than the 4G market standard, offering the best plans at the lowest prices, the company claimed.
"There is no longer any need to worry about having to top up or buy add-ons. The price for each plan is effectively a price cap, the more you consume the cheaper it gets,” said Yeoh.
For consumers who do not currently have a 5G-compatible smartphone, the Yes Infinite+ 36-month contract, allows customers to get a free 5G Smartphone, Yes said.
It added that there will be no upfront payment, no hidden charges, and no bill shock. Consumers will be able to choose a free 5G smartphone depending on the tier of the Yes Infinite+ plan of their choice, it added.
The company said renowned device brands, namely OPPO, Samsung, vivo and Xiaomi, and have established partnerships with Yes to journey together in championing 5G for Malaysians.
Meanwhile, Ralph Marshall, chief executive officer, Digital Nasional Berhad said, “We applaud Yes for being first to 5G and forging the next chapter with their ‘5G for All’ campaign,” he added.
“5G will play an important role in boosting Malaysia’s digital economy. With the launch of this campaign, Yes is lowering barriers to entry enabling affordable 5G access to all Malaysians,” said Marshall.
