September 22, 2023 – MEASAT Global Berhad (“MEASAT”), Malaysia’s Rural Broadband Service Provider, is now connecting close to 600 school sites in remote locations nationwide through its CONNECTme NOW high-speed wireless satellite broadband services, in line with its commitment to provide greater access to connectivity for education, especially in underserved rural communities. The CONNECTme NOW service can dynamically allocate bandwidth on demand. As the quota allocation is provided on a per user basis, schools with populations of any size – small or large, can easily scale up using this architecture, addressing potential bandwidth congestion. The Internet connectivity services will benefit teachers and students by offering download speeds of up to 100Mbps per location. Beyond the allocated quota for the school, additional quota can be purchased on a per user basis to meet personal consumption demands. The service is supported by MEASAT’s 24×7 Network Management Centre as well as an established local distributor network. Satellite broadband capacity is ideal for providing rapid, ubiquitous communications networks that are independent of geographical barriers or terrestrial infrastructure. It is suitable for very remote locations that are difficult to access, or in terrains that are less feasible for normal terrestrial services or mobile towers.
