Yes Launches Malaysia's First-Ever Experience Store Powered by 5G
Kuala Lumpur, October 14, 2022
YTL Communications’ Yes today launched the Yes Experience Store, the first-ever experience store in Malaysia that is fully enabled and powered by 5G connectivity, at Lot 10, Bukit Bintang. In line with Yes’ mission to enable 5G connectivity for all Malaysians, the experience store aims to demonstrate the future of 5G connectivity in changing the way we live, work and play in an increasingly interconnected, multi-device environment.
A first-of-its-kind in Malaysia, the Yes Experience Store brings a whole new experience for Malaysians to experience firsthand the ultra-fast connectivity of Yes 5G, with reduced latency, swift response times, and reliable coverage. Customers will also be able to enjoy massive network capacity as Yes’ 5G continues to support a multitude of devices, enabling customers to download and stream information, and digitally transact much faster, ultimately creating an enhanced experience.
More than just a place to purchase the Yes Infinite Gateway 5G Wireless Broadband, Yes First to 5G prepaid plans and Yes Infinite 5G postpaid plans, at the heart of the store is Malaysia’s first 5G-enabled cafe and restaurant, for customers to dine and experience 5G connectivity with friends and family. This is paired with the 5G Experience Centre, a modular space for private or corporate functions. Ranging from co-working sessions and conferences, to tech hackathons, 5G powered gaming tournaments and entertainment activities, this will be a true community space with the aim to connect with each other, harnessing the potential of technology.
“With the official launch of our first Yes Experience Store, we are proud to take another step forward into our mission of “5G for All”, providing a technologically advanced space for the community to work and play - all while enjoying the best that Yes 5G has to offer”, said Wing K. Lee, CEO of YTL Communications at the launch today.
“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.”
Outside of free 5G WiFi connectivity, the Yes Experience Store also offers customers a hands-on experience of 5G technology, from the latest 5G devices and 5G-powered robots to VR experiences with the HTC Viveflow VR Glasses. With the store’s modern design and picturesque setup, it is also the perfect place for taking Instagram-worthy pictures, and even more creative photo and video shoot opportunities powered by technology.
