Yes 4G SIM Card Video Review: Unlimited Data for $7!? (30/40 RM Plans)

4.0 rating

Are you going to Malaysia and are in need of a Malaysian SIM card? What if I told you can get an UNLIMITED data plan for ONLY $7 (30 MYR)? That sounds crazy, but it is true! Let's find out what Yes offers!

Malaysia has 4 full operators: Digi, Hotlink, Celcom, and U Mobile. A full operator is an operator that has 2G, 3G, and 4G/LTE networks

Moreover, there are 3 4G/LTE-only operators, which are Altel, Unifi, and Yes. Unlike Altel and Unifi, Yes does not have national roaming agreements with the full operators, meaning that Yes is genuinely a 4G/LTE-only operator.

Yes is somewhat an exclusive network because they use frequencies that are not common in Malaysia and around the world (TD(D)-LTE). However, they are one of the operators to have the most extensive 4G/LTE networks in West Malaysia, and speeds are okay.

Furthermore, they are one of the few (if not the only) Malaysia operators to offer UNLIMITED data plans for affordable prices. $7! Try getting an unlimited data pack for less than $10 in the US, Canada, Australia, or New Zealand – I will be waiting!

When I was in Malaysia, I decided to test out 5 of the many operators: Digi, Hotlink/Maxis, Celcom, U Mobile, and, of course, Yes.

In this video, I will tell you more about Yes and show you a speed test I did while I was in Malaysia. The result may surprise you.
