KUALA LUMPUR – YTL Communications, through its YES telecommunications services, is launching its 5G services in selected markets in the Klang Valley from today, making it the first Malaysian telco to do so, in conjunction with the Digital Nasional Bhd’s (DNB) launch of Malaysia’s 5G services today.

Chief executive officer Wing K. Lee said this major initiative by the government through DNB will steer the country to a digitalised and connected future.

“YES exists to make everyday experiences simpler, easier and better for everyone, by leveraging future-first technology, coupled with real-world applications.

“We are playing our part in helping Malaysia reach its fullest potential by ensuring more Malaysians have access to 5G, by making 5G access and 5G-enabled devices available with unbeatable plans,” he told a media briefing on the launch here, today.

In conjunction with the launch of 5G in Malaysia, Lee said YES is launching a series of special YES #FirstTo5G Plans which include unlimited 5G access until April 1, 2022.

“Customers who sign up for any of these plans will be able to experience the fifth and newest generation of mobile technology, offering higher speeds, more reliable coverage, reduced latency, and great network capacity with a supported 5G phone,” he said.

Current 5G coverage areas include Putrajaya, Cyberjaya and parts of Kuala Lumpur city centre, with plans to expand to the whole of the Klang Valley by end-2022.

Lee said YES was working with global tech giants across industries to bring world-class innovations to Malaysians, including CloudMinds, Zoom, Tencent Lenovo, and Qualcomm. 

Through these partnerships, he said YES is looking to develop and deploy advanced 5G solutions in Malaysia.
