To meet growing demand for its Yes 4G services, Malaysian WiMAX firm YTL Communications has expanded its sales channels to the country's East Coast, it said.
The Yes sales network comprising more than 37 authorised retailers and distributors will support its customers in Pahang, Terengganu and Kelantan to help boost broadband penetration in outlying cities and towns within these states, said YTL Communications chief executive officer, Wing K. Lee, who added that the company has launched its first official East Coast outlet in East Coast Mall, Kuantan, Pahang.
"The East Coast market is very important to us," said Lee. "We see a lot of potential for growth in these three states. There is also an increasing awareness and demand for Internet, especially with high performance mobile broadband."
"With a network that delivers three to five times faster speeds than any 3G network in the country and with some of the most competitive price points in the industry, this marks another significant milestone in enabling Malaysia's goal of becoming a high-income economy," he said.
Lee said that unlike conventional mobile networks, Yes's unified communications solution replaced physical SIM cards with a single user ID to offer subscribers seamless connectivity across multiple devices concurrently. The Yes service allows subscribers to be contacted on any device, whether mobile phone or computer using just one single 018 number. This innovation is the first of its kind in Malaysia and the world."
