mYprize: The US$1M Global Developer Challenge

mYprize challenges developers from across the world to create unique applications, content or devices that highlight the benefits of YTL Communications' 4G Network in Malaysia. To motivate developers worldwide to submit prototypes, YTL Communications is offering USD$1 million in prizes to those with the most exciting and creative solutions that serve consumer needs.

‘mYprize’ is a global competition aimed at challenging developers to create original applications and devices for YTL Communications’ nationwide 4G mobile Internet network set to be commercially launched in Malaysia later this year. YTL Communications envisions a modern broadband nation enhanced by the Internet and supports technological innovation.

Finalists will be invited to demonstrate their products in person to a panel of expert and community judges.
