YTL Communications is giving the rakyat a boost with its new YES Kasi Up initiative, rolling out the industry’s most affordable prepaid data plans to give people more savings. That aside, the telco introduces a unique referral model that rewards subscribers with cash.
The YES Kasi Up comes at an opportune time when the world continues to struggle with the COVID-19 pandemic and challenging economic climate.
The new YES Kasi UP Prepaid 15 plan is priced at just MYR15 per month for 10GB—the cheapest plan in the market with the highest amount of data and longest validity (30 days). YES cheekily nudges U Mobile in its marketing material, being cheaper by one-third.
Other options include Kasi Up Prepaid 20—MYR20 for 20GB per month and Kasi Up Prepaid Unlimited with MYR30 for unlimited data per month. Note that speed for this option is limited to 7Mbps and is bundled with 9GB of hotspot data.
If you hit your data caps, you can easily buy add-ons from MYR1 per day for 1GB, up to MYR10 for 10GB (7-day validity).
For more data-hungry users, YES also introduces the Kasi Up Postpaid 49, which costs MYR49 for 100GB per month. What’s enticing is that subscribers on this two-year contract will enjoy the first six months free, which YES says helps free up consumer cashflow to spend on essentials.
Alternatively, you can opt for the Kasi Up Postpaid 30 plan for MYR30 per month, giving you 20GB of data and a free phone.
YES isn’t just helping consumers save money, but also enabling them to earn money.
When YES subscribers successfully refer YES to their friends, they can potentially earn up to MYR50 cash per referral under the YES Kasi UP Refer & Earn programme. What more, their friends will earn the equivalent amount. There is no limit to how many referrals you can make.
YTL Communications CEO Wing K Lee explained that YES Kasi Up was born from the success of YTL Foundation’s Learn-From-Home (YTL-LFH) initiative, launched in March 2020 when the pandemic caused schools to close.
A collaboration between YES and FrogAsia, YTL-LFH discovered that 50 per cent of parents did not have sufficient data at home to accommodate e—learning. Low-income families could not afford to purchase devices for their children when the lockdown was announced.
A survey run by the Ministry of Education later further revealed that almost 40 per cent of students lacked access to a device for e-learning.
To date, over 400,000 SIMs and 100,000 mobile phones have been distributed to students nationwide under the YTL-LFH programme.
