I have used Yes 4G for about nine years, but sadly, no more.
Mostly I used it as a backup, if our Internet went down. And also, for downloading sometimes, as it was much faster than Telekom Malaysia. But also when abroad.
- When I first bought a pre-paid data volume nine years ago, it was a good deal. It came with a phone.
- And the data volume didn’t expire. You only had to use a minimal amount every month to keep it valid.
- Yes is 4G, which back then was faster than any other company’s connection.
- They had a smart phone app, called Yes Life – and you could make phone calls over the Internet – from your PC or tablet or smart phone – and if calling Malaysia it was a local call – great to use when abroad. It also did texts. No SIM necessary. It made any device with an Internet connection a phone too.
- Calls using Yes abroad are a reasonable price
- Yes Life is no more – you have to use a SIM – just like any other company. They killed the app. So may as well use Skype – free or Skype Out when calling a number.
- All data volume you buy expires – in a week or a month. Expensive when you use it only when a back up is necessary.
- All companies are now 4G, so Yes has lost its speed advantage
- The speed and data volume on my smart phone contract is enough as a backup and for downloads
- TM is a bit better than before for general Internet browsing – it doesn’t go down so often and its a little faster. Abysmal progress in nine years, but still.
- When credit is low (mine is RM40 now) Yes throttles your speed.
