YES!4G from YTL

Date: Oct 4, 2012

手痒. I bought this and subscribe a 24 months plan.

This is the Wifi Router from YTL Yes 4G Internet Broadband plan in Malaysia.

It's called the Yes huddle XS.

It is very sleek. 3 indicator lights showing power battery life, WiFi signal and the WiMAX signal.

Very thin, light and small. The battery life is 6-7 hours per charge.

So why do I buy it? Is it justify to buy this?

1. I fly into KL almost 1-2 times a month. Each stay is 3 days per time. So, I usually will enable my bridge mobile service from Singtel for 3 days each time. So, 3 days Singtel charged S$42. So every month I spent S$84 at least for my data roaming needs.

Buying the WiFi router is not expensive. Only MYR$80. Plus registration and deposit, I fork out MYR$230 - which is about S$93 only.

2. The plan I subscribed to is Surf 48, which means you pay only MYR$48 per month. Which converts to S$19/month.

I save $82-$19=S$63 per month for the company.

3). I checked the coverage, it covers my in law, the highway (use map), etc. so when I go back to my in law's home, I got Internet.

4) With Surf 48, I get 2.5GB I throttled speed. In Singapore on average I used less than 2GB data when I am outside.

5) if I used more than 2.5GB that month, then they will start throttle the speed. But I still get Internet but at a slow speed. Whenever I need more speed I just buy the Speed Booster, I can immediately lift the throttling. That cost MYR$20 (about S$8) and it will last for 30 days.

6) the only draw back is it does not last for whole day. But hey, I am bringing my 120,000mAh battery along.

7) it can connect to 4 different devices too.

8) if the hotel Internet sucks, I got this as backup provided it is covered.

So, you see, I think I made a right choice.

Here is a cool trick. You can login to and select shutdown without touching the device.

And you can save this cool feature/web site onto your iPhone desktop.

Give it a name.

And it will show up as a icon under your home screen desktop.

It comes with a soft phone too. Called YesLife.

And my phone is +6018-65-9797-1. I can recieve call even I am in Singapore.

And I can receive SMS too!

  1. Good strategy to use Yes abroad.
    If you are low usage, subscribe to the RM25 1GB to keep the account active, if you got device. Anyway, i got the 68 plan.
