Hi,

Anyone using YES 4G Internet Postpaid Plan (http://www.yes.my/v3/personal/plans/postpaid/super-plans.do) in USJ area?
Is the coverage good? Any complains?

I'm thinking of switching from Streamyx to Yes.

Yes is offering a few cheaper packages than what I'm paying for Streamyx+TM Line.

I'm only a casual net surfer and a light video (youtube) user.

The only reason I'm switching is because it saves me money:

RM113 = Streamyx (RM88) + TM Phone Line (RM25)
RM 68 = Yes Super68 Postpaid Plan
------------------------------------------------------------
RM 45 = Savings per Month

If you're a casual surfer, YES is the best. I'm using YES and I thought of changing to UNIFI but after trying YES, it's amazing.....

so far a yes to YES.

It's definitely faster (not getting 20Mbps lah but around 7Mbps which is still faster than Unifi), however bcos it's faster you might surf more than you think, and if you are sharing your connection at home with more than one person or devices i.e. smartphone, tablet and etc then the chance of exceed the quota within the month is high. Hope with more competitions they will increase the quota or better still allow to carry forward the unused quota --- dreams on ?

I think there is a minor flaw in the plan, while you are locked down to 2 years contract but the proprietory device warranty is only 1 year.

Do we really have 4G in Malaysia..?

I thought it is only available in a few countries worldwide....
And there was the case of Apple being fined for false advertising in Australia with its ipads....
This resulted in Apple's dropping the 4G label from their advertising in Australia....

So...are we really 4G ready....?

Cheers!

Yup...we have 4G in our country. The first to deploy 4G is Packet One and then YES. So far only 2 in the country....

I don't think our 4G is LTE..... it is closer to 3.5G not real 4G.

Yes RM68.00 package is for 3 GB quota? I remember that there was quite a few hidden cost no? You need to pay for admin fees, installation fee & for the modem which can out to be afew hundred.

3G broadband now offers 4GB for RM63.00 albeit slightly slower (but maxis oso claim 7 mbps) and lack hotspot capability

Did I say it is LTE? I didn't say right?
Anyway, LTE is coming soon I reckon. And the 4G is pretty much the real deal unless rakyat can come up with some proof.

Wonder how you folks do video calls....

1. You use your existing telco's 3G/4G video call service?
2. Or you use TM's Unifi service to do video calls?
3. And what was the experience in terms of quality and cost?

....and what about watching videos....be it from youtube or other p2p sites..
1. You use your telco's existing 3G/4G data plan service?
2. or you use TM's Unifi service?

Don't talk about cost first. Ponder the implications of a business plan...

Please share....
Cheers!

YES!

The coverage is good.
I signed up with the YES Zoom on the Super48 package. If you watch a little youtube, this isn't sufficient so I intend to upgrade to the Super68 package soon. Speed is good.

In addition I bought their Huddle. It goes everywhere with me. I don't need a Wifi zone to connect. That's the beauty of YES!

Most of the complaints regarding non streamyx in the past is frequent interruption to connection.
streamyx is much more stable compared to the rest in the past because it is fixed line and also it has the last mile advantage.

You can change to combo and save rm 25 for streamyx 1M. The phone line should have been included in the subscription rate.

Regardless of what package all these telco company are offering.
Landline are still the most reliable. This is why TM has the monopoly in it.

The other alternative for landline woule be Maxis. their promotion period has ended on June for RM118/mth for 10mbps. now the rate is RM138.
(but beware, maxis is infamous for their hidden charges. )

As far as i know, Maxis is piggybacking on the TM unifi fiberoptic line. So check with TM if your area can support Unifi first before switching to Maxis.

The ONLY DRAWBACK that I can see with the CURRENT MAXIS FIBRE PACKAGES is NO IPTV ... no IPTV, thus still need ASTRO ... until then, I wait ....

That was one of the point raised by Lim Guan Eng in the debate yesterday.

Our broadband rates are TOO expensive when compared to countries like Singapore, Korea etc.

This is due to the TM monopoly of the fixed lines.


" Singapore’s StarHub, by comparison, is offering a 100Mbps broadband for only S$86.88 "

http://biz.thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2010/4/10/business/6021777&sec=business

If we compare 'dollar for dollar' because Singaporeans earn in Sing dollar and not ringgit, they are only paying around RM 90 for 100 Mbps whereas Malaysians are paying RM 90 for a miserable 0.5 Mbps.:mad:

Yes....I was shocked when i went to the shop, cos at the web it says only free device, never mentioned pay upfront. Pay up front Rm150 for Dongle(activation fees, is not mistaken), others devices more expensive.

That's what I heard from my colleagues who are using non-Streamyx i.e. P1

Unfortunately I need a stable connection because I work from home occasionally, and I have to make a VPN connection to my company internal network. The VPN software is highly sensitive to Internet disconnection :(

I just don’t know why need to bother with all these G thingy… :confused:

Life work as usual with a fax machine and a fix phone line.. :)

I don’t think I can recall any of these IT thingy play a crucial role in corporate decision-making.....!!

Most of the time, it is a face-to-face chat and maybe a phone call to make a decision..

Well, I guess coolicutives have to rely on these thingy to impress their bosess... :laugh:

"Who the hell wants to hear actors talk?"

Well, I guess it is an honour my simple post reminds you of so many “infamous” quotes..

Perhaps you are in this ICT industry, so I have to give some discounts to your views, as far as ICT development is concerned.

But don't twist my point…

In case you don’t know, let me say it in simple English.. "(I actually wanted to write in even simpler Chinese, but judging from the unbelievably long time {more than 3 weeks} you still have not translated my previous post written in Chinese which you initially said it can be done by using the Google Translate {another proud invention of IT :laugh:}, I think it is a better idea for me to write it in English)

In the past 20 years, communication industry has changed in a unprecedented pace...
No doubt, we get better, faster and clearer image/sound via the communication devices : cellphone, TV, personal computer, etc.

But this changes are good to have, NOT NECESSARILY MUST HAVE.

I still remember how excited we were when conference call/ video conference was introduced to us. We were tired of travelling and many hope this gadget can reduce travelling. After less than 2 years, not many were excited about it anymore due to the lack of “personal touch”.

I don’t know about you guys, but I use the phone only to talk and text. Regardless of what phone the company gave to me, it is still the same old functions I use for the phone. Hence, the 3G, 3.5G or 4G may be something exciting in data or internet surfing but it is irrelevant to me. Trust me, there are many people like me.

And I have a peculiar habit of not replying email (regardless of PC or phone) after working hour..
My rationale is - speak to the person is the best way if something is urgent !!

If you are excited about IT advancement…
My sincere advice is - make sure you are running your own business to reap the benefits....or else I can tell you from my working experience, you still have a long way to go !!

Before you make a decide to select YES please THINK TWICE, I’ve sign up YES Zoom 98plan on 28/10/12 12noon and i reach home around 6pm. on 30/10/12 i received a sms said that my quota has reach 80% i had a shock, then i reported to YES care they told me on 28/1012 4pm i already used up 2.8gb of my quota, they advised my to change my password, after changed i realize the device will evaporated my quota approx 5.3mb per hours. i launched another report they will only advised you to change your password and they will said the usage is by you. i have no choice due to i am tie up with the contract, i wrote this is because i don't want anybody else to be cheated by YES. In another case, my friend has sign up on 3/12/13 as i told him the speed is excellent, but before he reach home he already received a SMS said that he used up 80% of his quota, as he is still in the mall immediately return to the stall and have an argue with the officer, and finally he return his device and terminate his account with the RM150 burn. After me and my friend's case i can concluded YES is not as reliable as you thought. PLEASE BEWARE!!!

agree with ikanlim. there are inconsistencies with the internet usage summary. when i first signed up, i took the 1.5gb package for rm48 per month. after activation, first thing i did was to check my data balance. it said i had 1.25gb left.

then yes sent me an email saying that i will be getting 1gb data free in my next billing on the 16th. by then i had upgraded to the rm68 4gb package. on the 16th in the morning, the website said i had 4057mb data balance. i should be getting 5gb... surely i didn't use up almost 1gb in less than 12 hours?

after sending an email to yes, the rep claimed the 1gb will be in my next billing.

however, i must say that the connection is satisfactory.

pity that after i signed up for 2 years with yes, maxis has 4g and packages that are pretty competitively priced.

It is unfortunate that many opt for postpaid because of the freebies/subsidies.

I like YES but for me, I am using PREPAID. Yes, I paid extra for my Huddle (RM 480) but this gives me the freedom to choose and decide if there is something that I am unhappy about.

Oh...and the YES phone calls using the 018 line...seriously sucks. Connection is sporadic and call quality is iffy. It comes "free" with the Prepaid but so far, it really is more of a miss than hit.

Do not be tempted by freebies. Freebies are normally not goodies...in every sense of the word.
