YTL Communications’s YES bolsters its Kasi Up initiative with 150 million GBs of free data for the masses since the Movement Control Order is implemented across multiple states and CMCO in others. The initiative has been ongoing for the most part of 2020, and is now extended as more people are staying home in compliance with the latest movement restriction order.


The way YES is looking to provide free data to its users is through rewarding them when they make purchases on YES’ partner platforms, though currently exclusive to Shopee. Shopee customers who are on the YES network earn 5 GBs of free mobile data with every RM 50 spent on the platform with an upper limit of 100 GBs to be earned per month, and purchases made in December 2020 are also honoured and will be rewarded accordingly.

Said to be a lifeline for the rakyat, everyone needs data to stay in touch with loved ones, for education and business purposes as well as the basis of shopping for daily essentials and personal needs. It is also means for access to entertainment for some families. With the COVID pandemic and different stages of Movement Control Orders currently in place for the entire country, digitisation is more vital than ever, and YES is looking to help with the change.

The Kasi Up initiative was initially launched to provide mobile data for YES network users, and the new YES DATABACK programme hopes to alleviate costs of expensive data plans, thus allowing users to spend their money on something else. The YES Kasi Up initiative now comprises of 4 key pillars:

  • Prepaid 15 which costs RM 15 monthly and provides 10 GBs of data with a 30-day validity;
  • Postpaid 49 which costs RM 49 monthly and provides 100 GBs of data, now with 6 months free for a two-year contract;
  • Refer & Earn which rewards YES subscribers with up to RM 50 each time they successfully refer YES to friends and family, with the new user earning too;
  • DATABACK which allows shoppers to earn free data when they spend on partner platforms.
