UPDATE: Added a link at the bottom to explain everything. Apparently, Carat says, YES we’re sorry.
can’t stop myself from sharing it with you guys.
I know, you might say, YES4G is a new company, you shouldnt be so harsh to them. But i will say, what you read in this blog will be only facts and my tought.
I had been complained about no helpline but it aint a big deal since we all know,for sure they will had it some days.
But now they had done something very very wrong.
In terms of business ethics.
Everyone can do SEO (Search Engine Optimization). Some success and some failed miserably. And so do ads.
You know, sometimes bloggers do this. Some bloggers put some fake titles or use “sex appeal” to grab more visitors, but i tell you, those visitors are from search engine. But i can assure you, once they been “cheated” by your blog’s fake title, they will NEVER COME BACK.
But this might be not a big deal for bloggers since those people might be already using fake name or something like that,
BUT NOT A BIG COMPANY, A HUGE COMPANY IN MALAYSIA.
Ads is nice. But misleading ads can kill yourself. You are buying your own grave YES4G.
According to this blog: http://www.larrylim.net/seo-online-marketing/yes-4g-wimax-misleading-ads-embarrassing-launch/182/
YES4G uses dirty ads by placing adwords and make searches on “P1” or “Streamyx” redirected to their YES.MY site.
What i mean dirty ads is, they put a fake name, and in this case, their competitors’ name in the title, and if user doesn’t look carefully, they will be redirected to a YOUR YES site.
Well, since you can really believe everything you read on the internet, i tried it out myself, and see what i got:
(all screenshot taken on 21/11/2010. You can see the full screenshot and see the details by yourself.)

This is a very very very bad thing, and YES, you can either stop doing it, come out and say sorry, or you can get out from the game (well, thats i assume many people care about business ethics)
Who are willing to give your personal information, and in some case, your CREDIT CARD INFO to this kind of company.
I know YTL you got a lot of money, you use money can kill other competitors like P1, but, you are doing it wrong.
What you should do is, offer BETTER SERVICE, not just saying 3 to 5 times 3G (And even without clarify about whats the 3G you are comparing to), more info please read my first chapter of FAQs.
Give better coverage.
Give cheaper rate.
Do your promotion sincerely.
Give really good service to your customer (or aka your boss)
and not to forget improve your website (which had been down for like forever)
YES4G, please lah, you are acting like childish person fooling 3 years old baby to accidentally go to your site. And hoping they will subscribed to your company?
AGAIN, You are
holding doing it wrong.
Give good service, and your reputation will come,
and now, you are going the other way round.
Look at the tweet #yes4g. How many of them are really happy with your service? I think we all can tell.
One more last thing, please stop playing the fool “pay as you use” while users need RM30 monthly commitment.
write it the other way round.
RM30 monthly commitment, and pay as you use after that.
Dont mislead your customer.
Thank you. I hope you will still improve your service as we all know malaysia need more ISP to create a more competitive environment, and users will happy.
More #YES4G comment and news coming soon.
