KUALA LUMPUR: YTL Communications Sdn Bhd (YTL Comms) has submitted its business plan to Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) to secure spectrum licences to roll out its Yes 4G mobile internet-with-voice service in Sabah and Sarawak.
Its chief executive officer, Wing K Lee, said the company was currently awaiting feedback from MCMC.
“MCMC will review the plan and give us the feedback,” he told a media briefing here today.
He said the company launched its network in Terengganu recently as part of its effort to make access to its 4G service widespread in the East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia. Lee said the company planned to add over 2,500 base stations by year-end and cover 85 per cent of the population in Peninsular Malaysia.
“Currently, we have 2,000 base stations in Peninsular Malaysia and our Yes network covers 65 per cent of the population,” he said.
He said with the deployment of more base stations, the number of YES subscribers was expected to increase to over 400,000 by year-end from 300,000 currently.
Lee said since the launch of Yes, YTL had carried over seven million minutes of voice calls, two million SMS and 825 terabytes of data traffic.
“I am pleased that we enjoy a customer satisfaction rating of over 86 per cent currently,” he said. — Bernama
