YTL Communications overcame the global competition in the broadband space to take the “Best New Service” award in the prestigious Broadband World Forum 2011 in Paris, France. YTL Comms won the hearts of an elite panel of judges comprising senior industry executives and experts including Dr. Zhao Huiling (Vice-President of Beijing Research Institute at China Telecom), Dr. Yoon-Young Park (Senior Vice President, Head of Technology Development Office at Korea Telecom), Daniel Brower (EVP Convergence Technology at Deutsche Telekom Group) and Amaru Chavez (Group Chief Technology Officer at Etisalat).
The award comes nearly a year into the launch of its Yes 4G broadband service which brings together mobile broadband, mobile telephony (voice and SMS) and cloud-based services. The network is estimated to be 3-5 times faster than previous generation 3G networks, and enables users to access the network through a ‘Yes ID’ rather than a sim card.
Multiple devices are able to log on to the network using the same Yes ID, which has a mobile number associated with it, thus enabling calls and text messages to be routed concurrently to all devices signed in using the same ID.
Yes 4G currently offers four devices for use on its network – the pocket sized ‘Go’ dongle, ‘Huddle’ Wi-fi hotspot, ‘Buzz’ 4G cloud phone, and ‘Zoom’ 4G gateway – which covers at least 65% of the Malaysian population.
Congratulations, YES 4G and kudos for bringing positive change to Malaysia!
