(This picture has no connection with YES, just for laughs, ok?)
That was how convincing YTL's YES tagline, 'Fastest 4G Mobile Internet with Voice' to me.
I was in Gurney Plaza last Friday (in Penang again, because wife needed to sort out her travel details with Holiday Tours and Travel, don't ask me why in this day and age...) where there was an exhibition by House of Notebooks in connection with YES promotion. Coincidentally, I handed something to this woman just before we left for Penang, and her husband's work involves putting up YES's transmission towers. Yet, BG has yet to have coverage. I was convinced by its potential in making cheap overseas call and influenced by its speed when viewing Youtube without problems with buffering. But when I got back, I realized that it goes well only with a 'buzz 4G Cloud Phone' which is tagged as 'an all in one 4G mobile phone that is powered by the Internet'. It was a good job, I have yet to buy anything myself. Now I recall having heard about YES partnering with Samsung in their 4G network installation of transmission towers.
The whole concept is still new to most people, including myself, but I believe its potential is great in terms of pinching customers from existing 3G and other lesser providers, if their claims could be realized. I have yet to get a taste of it, probably when in PJ in a few days time. Probably when the dongle works, I will dangle it to tempt my son to have it!
