The future of voice calls is voice over LTE (VoLTE). Utilising the ultra-fast data network, VoLTE comes with plenty of benefits over traditional voice calls.
The first and most immediate advantage of VoLTE is crystal clear reception – VoLTE calls has up to six times better clarity compared to traditional voice calls, giving the impression that the person you’re talking to is right next to you.
Calls are also faster to set up, at up to half the time it takes for standard voice calls. VoLTE also has the benefit of allowing both data and voice calls to run simultaneously, something normal voice calls do not support. Also, VoLTE calls are secured end-to-end.
In Malaysia, most telcos are slowly moving towards integrating VoLTE services for their customers. However, YTL Communications is not only the first telco in Malaysia to enable VoLTE service to its customers, it is the only telco with nationwide VoLTE coverage.
On top of that, Yes 4G subscribers also enjoy the advantage of free unlimited VoLTE calls as well as SMS between Yes numbers.
As Malaysia’s first and only nationwide VoLTE network, YTL Communications was recently awarded the “Most Innovative Voice Service” award at the recent Telecoms Asia Awards 2017. The Telecoms Asia Awards is a prestigious industry event catered to Asian service providers and industry executives. Now in its 20th year, the awards reward innovative and outstanding performance.
The “Most Innovative Voice Service” awards category made its debut in this year’s industry awards, and serves to recognise a service provider that demonstrates outstanding innovation in voice call functionality in the highly competitive industry. YTL Communications emerged as the winner, triumphing over regional finalists including Reliance Jio (India), SK Telecom (South Korea) and SmarTone (Hong Kong).
This achievement is made sweeter by the fact that it has only been 10 months since YTL Communications commercially launched its 4G LTE and VoLTE service under the brand YES in June 2016. Its postpaid plans offer large amounts of data at affordable prices, starting from just RM48 a month. It also released the country’s most affordable VoLTE smartphone, the Altitude, that retails for RM399.
