After the recent co-launch with Samsung Malaysia's Galaxy J 2016 series last week, YTL recently held a buka puasa to fete Malaysia's media and in turn reveal some of their plans for Malaysia's future YES mobile 4G LTE users. Granted, they themselves have admitted that they have been relatively quiet but this has mainly because they have been strengthening their 4G LTE network to achieve fast and dense connections over 85% of the nation.
The big reveal last week showed off their Voice over LTE but at the buka puasa they also maintained that they are the only Malaysia 4G LTE provider to fully maximize their spectrum. With their mobile plans set for a launch on 30 June 2016, they felt that the timing for the release is just right as the amount of 4G LTE capable devices and users has increased enough for a compelling price tag with their upcoming mobile plans.
