Yahsat, a satellite communications company wholly-owned by Mubadala, has established its presence worldwide, offering solutions to over 150 countries across the world. Yahsat has continually made a positive impact on communities locally and globally with its forward-thinking, technological solutions.
In the UAE, when the global pandemic forced schools to close their doors and students to continue their education remotely, Yahsat, joined forces with the UAE Ministry of Education (MoE) to extend the reach of its Remote Schooling initiative. Yahsat provided high-speed satellite broadband for students and teachers in multiple locations where terrestrial broadband alternatives were unavailable. The satellite links offered remote users access to online libraries, educational applications and collaborative platforms, allowing the students to continue pursuing their education uninterrupted until the end of the educational year in 2020.
Moreover, Yahsat has expanded its reach in the past few years, with a strategic presence in Latin America and Africa. In Brazil, Yahsat is providing satellite broadband services to remote communities. This has strengthened the nation’s digital landscape and a host of long-term, tangible benefits for communities and businesses across Brazil.
This is in line with Yahsat’s mission to enable social and economic development by empowering communities in remote regions with high-performance broadband connectivity.
