“MCMC will review the plan and give us the feedback,” said Yes4G chief executive officer, Wing K. Lee in the report on Bernama. In July, the Government requested YTL Comms to submit a business plan if it wants to roll out its WiMAX service in Sabah & Sarawak.

Wing also said that Yes4G currently has 2,000 base stations in Peninsular Malaysia, covering 65 per cent of the population.

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. The company plans to add over 2,500 base stations and cover 85 per cent of the population in Peninsular Malaysia by year-end.

Since July, Yes4G claims that it currently has some 300,000 subscribers.
