YTL Communication’s Yes 5G has introduced its 5G broadband offering that’s called Yes Wireless Fibre. The service promises to provide fibre-like speeds over 5G without the hassles of a wired broadband installation.
Since the first Yes 5G plans were made available to the public last December just as Digital Nasional Berhad officially opened up the national 5G network to the public, they were restricted to smartphones but that has just changed this week with the new Yes Wireless Fibre 5G plan.
To put things in perspective, the new plan is the first 5G-based Fixed Wireless Access (FWA) in Malaysia. For just RM148 per month, customers will be provided with an unlimited 5G data quota at a speed of up to 120Mbps.
Furthermore, customers will also receive 150GB of 4G data without any speed cap. The new Yes Wireless Fibre 5G plan is also inclusive of a free 5G router although customers have to commit to the place for 24 months.
On the other hand, there is also the Yes Wireless Fibre 5G bundle plan which costs RM229 per month. On top of all the services provided by the standard plan, the bundle also includes two supplementary Infinite Basic lines for smartphones.
Meanwhile, the Yes Infinite Basic plan gives users unlimited 5G and 4G data as well as calls. It does come with a 10GB hotspot quota though and if signed up separately, the plan costs RM58 per month. It was noted that the router has 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi capability as well as able to support 32 devices at one time.
If you plan on giving it a go, the two Yes 5G wireless fibre plans also come with a 7-day return policy. You can sign up online and they will ship the 5G wireless router and the SIM directly to your doorstep for free. Take note that you’ll need to pay a one-month subscription as an advance payment.
As of now, the 5G services in Malaysia are available in selected parts of Kuala Lumpur, Cyberjaya, and Selangor. Outside of Klang Valley, 5G areas are also located in Johor, Perak, and Penang.
