After almost 3 years of waiting, WiMAX operator Yes 4G has finally arrived in Sabah. During the official launch, its Executive Director Yeoh Soo Keng has mentioned that Yes 4G network has covered 60% of populated areas in Sabah and they aim to extend this further to 80% by year end. A quick check on their coverage map reveals that most major towns in Sabah including the interior ones have coverage.
Apart from Kota Kinabalu, Tawau and Sandakan, Yes 4G has coverage at Kudat, Ranau, Kota Marudu, Kota Belud, Tuaran, Papar, Beaufort, Kuala Penyu, Sipitang, Keningau, Tambunan, Lahad Datu and Semporna. In addition, the duty free island of Federal Territory Labuan is covered as well. If you plan on uploading a resolution video of your climb at Mount Kinabalu, unfortunately the National Park isn’t covered by Yes 4G yet. Who knows they would extend their coverage to the highest peak of Malaysia later on.
At the moment, they have 5 retail outlets at shopping malls in Kota Kinabalu. Unlike other operators that roll out services in phases, Yes 4G has emulate their same strategy of building a wide coverage network first before starting their service commercially in Sabah.
