August 10, 2023 – MEASAT is partnering with Astro Malaysia Holdings Berhad (“Astro”) to provide complimentary CONNECTme NOW high-speed broadband services to two Astro Kasih Hostels in East Malaysia. The initiative currently benefits over 200 primary school students from remote hostels in SK Magandai (Kota Marudu) in Sabah and SK Sungai Paku (Kapit) in Sarawak. MEASAT is installing CONNECTme NOW satellite broadband with speeds of up to 100Mbps at participating hostels. Hostels that do not have grid power will also be installed with solar power infrastructure to support the CONNECTme NOW equipment. The social impact of this programme will be reviewed from time to time to determine ways to increase its impact.
