PETALING JAYA: YTL Communications has rolled out new YES Kasi Up prepaid and postpaid plans on its YES 4G network, as well as a unique referral model that gives cash rewards subscribers and the people they refer the network to.
The new YES Kasi Up Prepaid 15 plan, with a 30-day validity, is priced at RM15 monthly for 10GB.
The telco says this is the market’s lowest-priced plan with the highest amount of data and the longest validity.
By comparison, similar plans on the market today cost at least RM30 monthly.
It also rolled out the YES Kasi Up Postpaid 49, with the first six months free on a two-year contract, at RM49 for 100GB per month.
Meanwhile, YES subscribers who successfully refer the network to their friends can earn up to RM50 cash per referral under the YES Kasi Up Refer and Earn.
Also, their friends earn the equivalent amount.
“YES Kasi Up is not just about saving money, it’s also about making money and sharing the fruits of their effort.
“It’s a simple referral model that can be understood by everyone.
“No special skills, no training, no capital required – just refer YES to friends and family, and earn money, ” said YTL Communications managing director Datuk Yeoh Seok Hong.
YES is the first and only 100% 4G mobile operator in Malaysia and also the first to offer voice-over-LTE (VoLTE) service for high-definition, crystal clear calls.
The YES 4G network covers 90.1% of the population and has 1.3 million subscribers.
YTL Communications CEO Wing K Lee said YES Kasi Up was born from the success of YTL Foundation’s Learn-From-Home (YTL-LFH) Initiative, which was launched in March 2020 when the Covid-19 pandemic caused schools to close.
YTL Foundation developed YTL-LFH, a collaboration with YES and FrogAsia, when a survey it carried out showed that almost 50% of parents did not have sufficient data at home to enable e-learning, and low-income families could not afford to purchase devices for their children when the lockdown was announced.
A survey carried out by the Ministry of Education a month later showed that almost 40% of students lacked access to a device for e-learning.
‘Stay safe, stay learning’ was the ethos of the immensely successful YTL Learn-From-Home Initiative.
To date, over 400,000 SIMs and 100,000 mobile phones have been distributed to students nationwide.
“In the same way, YES Kasi Up ensures no one gets left behind in today’s data-driven economy. We will continue to invest in our nationwide network to increase our coverage and serve the connectivity needs of the nation.
“We believe that by giving everyone in the country access to 100% 4G connectivity, the most affordable data plans, and a much-needed cash boost, we can give them the helping hand they need, ” said Wing. For details, visit www.yes.my or download the MyYes Mobile App.
