Posted:  November 3, 2010   By:    22 comments   



UPDATE (101117): Yes rates leaked at 9 sen per 3MB data / 1 minute of talk / SMS. Read all about it here.

UPDATE (101104): Registration of yesID starts now. Book your username and 018 at yes.my.

YTL Communications tonight has revealed its 4G service brand. The name is simple and its called YES. Yes, that’s right.

4G Mobile Internet + Voice
They also announced that there will be a land grab for 018 mobile numbers starting from midnight tonight. It is believed that Yes will commence voice service on Day 1 of launch. To book or register your number, keep a look out on their website http://yes.my when the clock strikes 12.

YES ID
Interestingly the voice service is different from the rest. Yes claims that they will offer full cloud-based services allowing you to sync your contacts directly. Plus, when you register your 018 number, you’ll also get your YesID which comes with an email address e.g. johndoe@yes.my. Pricing for Yes service will be based on Pay As You Go model. This is because Yes believes that consumers should pay for what they use, just like water.

YES DEVICES: USB, MiFi, Desktop Modem & 4G Phone
Now to the devices. Their USB 4G Modem will be called YES Go while their MiFi device is called YES Huddle. Meanwhile 4G phone will be called YES Buzz and its all in one home modem with voice and WiFi will be called YES Zoom. The YES Buzz 4G phone is SIM-less and all you need is your YesID. Pretty simple and direct naming for their products.

Pictures from the event below:



YES 4G Coverage
In terms of coverage, YES claims to have more than 1000 base stations covering 65% of Peninsular Malaysia. As comparison they claim P1 to have less than 800 base stations. That’s a massive difference considering P1 had started earlier!

ADDITIONAL UPDATES

  • YES is working on Android based 4G Phone running Android 2.2 Froyo!
  • YES will offer free WiFi running on its network on ERL to demo high speed seamless mobility. ERL are free to try the service while on board
  • YES will be launched on 19th November 2010
  • Don’t forget to register your YesID at 12:00AM 4th November at http://yes.my.

@terry3386

is this the follow up post? i think i was right guessing the YES buzz has front + slideout keypad @.@
got few questions:
1)do they give a data comparison on 3G vs 4G 's connection? (e.g. download / upload speed)
2)do they explain how is it achievable to make calls|sms w/o sim card?
3)how to use their service on non 4g phones?

    Hey Terry thanks for dropping by, here are the answers we got from the presentation at the brand unveiling:

    1. They did a comparison between Celcom and Maxis vs. Yes. The speeds from Yes look very impressive but we have to consider that the network load is much less due to the fact that there's virtually no one on it yet. We've signed up for our Yes IDs and we will monitor the network across a few months to see if the performance is consistent after the load has increased.

    2. The phone is full 4G no SIM-card required all the services are IP-based. You can send and receive SMS and make calls just like a normal mobile phone. The downside is that you have to be within coverage area. If you're out of coverage then you have no connectivity.

    3. Wing Lee — the CEO of Yes — explains that all WiFi devices can go on 4G using Yes' 4G MiFi device they call the Huddle

    Hope we've answered your questions.

Pay Per Use has it Pro and Con:

1. Pro is people will not tend to download/upload too much or use it for too long hence their station will not go as congest as other Wireless Broadband Operator.
2. Con is people will tend to not feel comfortable that they need to keep track of how much they have used and how much they have to pay etc.
3. Another Con is it's possible that you will overuse hence it will be more expensive than using other Wireless broadband from the cost/bit or cost/sec.

Hope the price won't be too expensive.

    We shared the same sentiment. Pay-as-you-use is a good idea but the pricing is critical, Yes needs to get this right to make it a success.

YTL Yes = Bad

1 cheat your money , all have you pay and can't use
2 call centre all dead , call all the way no answer and ask you list down your number but never call back to you.
3 Go to "KL Centre" to ask for help they said its something problem with yes system , we will call you tonight or tomorrow for sure to explanations, few day no one call from them.
4 Log on to "yes.my" , just press all the link have to wait 1hour or more than that and alway came out "server error"
5 super waste time and super bad service.

Don't remove this, because this is a complaint, till you fixed the problem.

'The operating licence issued to them on Aug 30 is for a content applications service provider individual licence to provide subscription-based IPTV services using their 2.3GHz WiMax Network, MCMC said in a statement following a news report on the 700MHz spectrum issue.

According to MCMC, under Malaysia's National Spectrum Plan, the 700MHz spectrum band was allocated for broadcasting service and not for Long-Term Evolution (LTE) or 4G mobile services as speculated in various reports.

The 700MHz spectrum band is vital to the operation of the 4G high-speed wireless network. By getting the allocation of the spectrum, YTL will have a stranglehold over the new technologies in the sector, LTE to power the 4G market". Star Online , 30th November, 2010

Any Comment???
