 YTL 4677 YTL CORPORATION BERHAD offers lower 5G data prices by 300pct under

YTL Communications Sdn Bhd's Yes telecommunications service is lowering data prices by 300 per cent to 30 sen per gigabyte (GB) as part of its revolutionary '5G for All' campaign, which includes free device plans.

KUALA LUMPUR: YTL Communications Sdn Bhd's Yes telecommunications service is lowering data prices by 300 per cent to 30 sen per gigabyte (GB) as part of its revolutionary '5G for All' campaign, which includes free device plans.

According to its managing director Datuk Yeoh Seok Hong, Yes' 5G for All was the company's commitment to providing affordable 5G services and solutions for Malaysians to have access to the network anytime, anywhere.

"Five months ago we became the country's first telco to offer 5G. 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 per cent to a mere 30 sen per GB with our newest data and free device plans while offering speeds that are 20 times faster," he said.

Yeoh was speaking after the launch of Yes 5G for All by Communications and Multimedia Minister Tan Sri Annuar Musa here on Thursday.

Tan Sri Francis Yeoh, executive chairman of YTL Corp Bhd, Wing K. Lee, chief executive officer of YTL Communications, and Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) chairman Datuk Dr. Fadhlullah Suhaimi Abdul Malek were also present at the launch.

Yeoh is encouraging Malaysians to switch to 5G with Yes and take advantage of the most affordable plans, as well as free phones on the best 5G network.

According to him, 5G would enable high-speed experiences that will alter how people work, live, and play.

YTL's 5G for All includes Infinite and Infinite+ mobile plans.

Yeoh said that these plans went beyond the current market's unlimited plans by providing customers with a truly 'Infinite' experience with no speed throttling - what Yes calls 'Infinite' high-speed data for both 4G and 5G.

"These Infinite series of plans have been developed with customers in mind. With Infinite, high-speed data at all times regardless of 4G or 5G, customers can enjoy 20 times faster speeds at 300 per cent cheaper prices. There is no longer any need to worry about having to top up or buy add-ons," he said.

Customers who do not already have a 5G-compatible smartphone can get one for free with the Yes Infinite+ 36-month contract.

There will be no upfront payment, no hidden charges, and no bill shock, according to Yeoh.

"There is only one price and all costs are capped. Customers will be able to select a free 5G smartphone based on the tier of their Yes Infinite+ plan," he said.

The basic Yes Infinite+ plan costs RM58 per month, the standard plan costs RM88 per month, the premium plan costs RM118 per month, and the ultra plan costs RM178 per month, all of which include unlimited 5G and 4G data as well as unlimited calls.

Yes Infinite+ 36-month contract includes a free 5G smartphone. YTL's basic plan includes the Vivo Y55+, while the standard plan includes the Xiaomi Redmi Note 11 Pro or the Samsung A33.

The premium plan includes an OPPO Reno 7 or a Samsung A53, while the ultra plan includes a Vivo X80 or a Samsung S22.

"We are excited to be partnering with these notable brands who have given us their unwavering support. We are confident that the coming together of Yes and these device manufacturers will see many more joining the 5G bandwagon in Malaysia," he said.

Digital Nasional Bhd's (DNB) chief executive officer Ralph Marshall said the company had been greatly encouraged by the response from YTL Communication's Yes throughout its journey to deploy 5G nationwide.

"We applaud Yes for being first to 5G and forging the next chapter with their 5G for All campaign. 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," he said.  

YTL Communications is the first major telco to launch 5G services, in conjunction with DNB's rollout of 5G services.

DNB was established in early March 2021 to accelerate the deployment of 5G infrastructure and network in Malaysia. It will offer 5G as a wholesale network service to other telcos.
