Pay As You Use: YES4G

I emailed to YesCare and finally they reply my question with real answer, not some “we received your email… bla bla bla” bull shit thing.

OK so what did i asked about.
Since YES4G is pay as you use, will there be a maximum cap of charge per month for the service.
And i also tell them an example. Lets say i use 100GB of data. How much will i be charged.

From what im assuming is i will get charged RM3000 for the month and rebate RM900 after that. Total for 100GB data is RM2100.
But i get an interesting answer and thought will share it out.

Dear Valued Customer

Thank you for contacting YesCare

With reference to your enquiry, please be advised that we do not have capping for the account.

If you use 100GB you would be paying RM 2150.40(1Gb= 1024MB)

Please do not hesitate to contact us again if you have any further inquiries.

Always at your service,
Customer Advocate

First thing first, 1GB = 1024mb.
OK they so smart they follow the computer calculation of that. I thought it will be 1GB = 1000mb. So smart.

Second thing, i think they didnt think properly before answering my question. I wont be paying for RM 2150.40 but RM3072 for the month, then only i get rebate of RM 921.60 .

And third thing, To get the full rebate on the case above, you better make sure ALL 100GB is DOWNLOAD and NO UPLOAD!
Since they only count the downloaded date as rebate.

From what i can conclude is, YES4G is for casual users, or freaking rich people. If you use it to download, YOU WILL DIE IN NO TIME. Or… not in no time lah, maybe after a month LOL
If you dont know, with the speed that YES4G get, you can easily download 100GB within a few days.

Will update more as soon as i get the information!

    Your usage is based on upload + download isn’t it. I don’t think they going to let you become a DCC fserver right?

    And with the speed you get, 4Mbps can download nearly 2GB in 1 hour, so you only need 2 days 24 hours to reach 100GB.

    By the way, Clearwire in US charges $5 a day, $20 a week, or $50 for a month in their Pay as you Go plan, for comparison.

      Well, usage is UPLOAD+DOWNLOAD
      But the rebate is base on how much you DOWNLOAD and not including UPLOAD. Read the terms of service. Its stated inside.
      And actually i will be 100% much happier if YES implement a monthly or like you say daily, weekly and monthly plan for those who are heavy users. But i dont think this will happened since its mobile wireless broadband, and its just too good to be true. 😀

    I think the price that was advised to you is the price after the discount…. Maybe you are abit dumb for not knowing that or just wish to look down on YES. If you wish to download 100gb of data than go for fiber optic which would be much better. If you read properly you would know that yes is the (Fastest Mobile 4g internet)Quote”MOBILE INTERNET). There are lot of friends who i know have advised that YES is good and not as expensive as other 3g network provider. futhure more Yes is 4g and they are still consider cheaper than 3g providers.

      cheap, if you use about less than 3GB of data. After that, the bill just keep on counting like your electricity bill. Just my opinion.
      And about the download 100gb, since YES4G “seems” to provide good speed on the go, why cant i do that?
      Im just sayin.

    I chuckled.

    It’s not that they’re so smart, it’s simply for the calculation of BYTES, multiples are ALWAYS in BINARY/POWERS-OF-2. It’s a practice, and not just their practice.

    To get it right for you, use this:
