Launched a year ago in June 2016, Yes is one of the youngest 4G LTE telco in Malaysia. Despite being the newest LTE player in the market, Yes has leapfrogged the rest by launching the country’s first ever Voice over LTE (VoLTE) service. If you want to enjoy loud and clear conversations, here are 5 reasons why you should go with Yes.
VoLTE is the next evolution for voice. Unlike traditional circuit switch voice networks, VoLTE has more bandwidth for HD voice giving you superior clarity as if the person you’re talking to is next to you. Plus, you can enjoy it end to end on Yes’ 4G LTE network. The difference is like night and day, and you can hear it for yourself here.
With VoLTE, you won’t need to wait too long before you can say hello. Calls are connected quicker than conventional 2G and 3G calls. In our previous test, a VoLTE call connects 50% faster than normal calls and 37% faster than WiFi calling. A few seconds is crucial in urgent situations and VoLTE does make a difference.
Without VoLTE, your current 4G connection has to switch to 3G before you can make or answer a voice call. That can be annoying when you’re using data at the same time. On Yes, you can enjoy both 4G calls and 4G data at the same time thanks to VoLTE. Imagine being able to answer a phone call without interrupting your high-speed download via hotspot. Now, that’s a true 4G experience.
Yes operates a fully 4G network without any legacy 3G or 2G technologies. So, you’ll be assured of 4G LTE and VoLTE connectivity all the time when you’re in coverage. Whether you’re on postpaid or prepaid, Yes offers free calls and SMS between Yes to Yes numbers. That’s unlimited crystal clear conversations that you can enjoy nationwide.
In recognition of its services, YTL Communications was awarded the Most Innovative Voice Service in Asia during the Telecoms Asia Awards 2017. This is a testament to its VoLTE service and they had emerged the winner against other regional finalists including Reliance Jio (India), SK Telecom (South Korea) and SmarTone (Hong Kong).
It’s a remarkable achievement for a 10-month old 4G LTE service and it’s also first telco to roll out a nationwide VoLTE service in an emerging country globally. For more info, visit www.Yes.my.
