In an effort to support the UAE’s response to the COVID-19 outbreak, Yahsat, Mubadala’s satellite service provider, in collaboration with the UAE Ministry of Education (MoE), is taking measures to give back to the community.

Adnan AlMuhairi, Deputy Chief Technical Officer of Yahsat, highlights the company’s support in the country-wide remote schooling program.

Yahsat has extended the reach of its Remote Schooling initiative for students seeking access to online education during the COVID-19 outbreak. Yahsat has provided high-speed satellite broadband for students and teachers in multiple locations across the UAE where terrestrial broadband alternatives are unavailable.

Yahsat's satellite links also provide remote users with access to online libraries, educational applications and collaborative platforms. Its services will be available to users free of charge until the end of the educational year in 2020.

Khalid Al Kaf, Deputy Chief Operations Officer of Yahsat, also sheds light on the company’s commitment to supporting the UAE Government’s response to the pandemic by providing the best quality of satellite broadband services, which will be available to UAE communities 24/7.
