Harnessing the power of technology
Aligning with the Yes’ mission “5G for All”, Yes Experience Store introduced a new episode in the technology advance space, allowing Malaysians experiencing the ultra-fast connectivity of 5G, with reduced latency, swift response times, and reliable coverage.

CEO of YTL Communications, Wing K. Lee said that the internet is a basic right for all regardless of status or location. Therefore, in order to enable Malaysia to advance the societies, transforming the industries and dramatically enhancing day-to-day experiences, Yes 5G coverage has now been available in most places in Klang Valley and few states in Malaysia. The effort of advancing Malaysia's network is still continuing as Yes is now actively accessing the fifth generation of internet all around Malaysia, enabling Malaysians to experience the latest and advanced network connectivity.
“Malaysians will have the opportunity to experience more of our world-class 5G connectivity, such as our 5G download speeds of over 665Mbps, which is over 15 times higher than the current average 4G speed of 44.1Mbps. This is part of our commitment to providing affordable 5G services and solutions for the benefit of every Malaysian, that makes everyday experiences simpler, easier and better. Yes will continue to play a leading role in enabling a more connected future for the nation through 5G”, said Wing K. Lee.
