A lot was said about the 4G standard, with some die-hard techies pushing to make their point heard about YTL Comms being misleading and misusing the 4G moniker.
I’m not going into that; for as a consumer, I seriously don’t give a s**t what they call it. Give me SPEEDY, ZIPPY & RELIABLE connection & I’m happy. Even better if all of that comes with reasonable rates.
The rates were finally revealed yesterday. Just as mentioned in the soft launch HERE , there is no plan, no monthly commitments. YES is SIM-less & it is Pay-As-You-Use.
9 cents – 3MB
3 cents – 1MB
RM30.00 – 1G
Cheap? Expensive? You decide.
The current offer is RM99 for the Go Dongle and it comes with RM10 free credit for 10 months.
The Huddle – a 4G Mobile Hotspot, shareable for up to 4 surfers at any one time is RM399 (device only) or RM1199 for device & FREE Rm1200 credit. Interest -free instalment plan is available at RM50 for 24 months. With the instalment plan, it helps making it affordable for most of us, just as YTL Comms promised.
More details on the devices:
The actual device: The Go USB Dongle, that came in our goody bags yesterday. Thanks YTL Comms! 😉
Very small, very light.
The buzz entry level 4G mobile phone by YTL and the Zoom, the 4G Gateway will be available from next month onwards.

I can’t wait to try out the so-claimed extremely zippy connection myself. I would definitely share my experience using YES once I get my Go dongle. 😉
Thank you to YTL Comms for the invite!
For now, Congrats to YTL Communications for the launch of its “YES 4GNetwork” !!
