Etisalat has revealed that it has helped more than 1 million students in the UAE to continue their education through the Covid 19 pandemic, through its e-learning initiatives and online platforms.

Connectivity has been at the very heart of the UAE’s response to the Coronavirus outbreak, which has forced millions of citizens and residents to work and study from home.  

Etisalat has allowed over 10 million mobile subscribers to enjoy free browsing of over 800 websites related to education, health and safety.

“To support and enable distance learning, free mobile data was made available - in coordination with the Ministry of Education and Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) - to over 12,000 students whose families do not have Internet at home. Etisalat also provided access to 9 apps and platforms, allowing visual and audio communications: Google Hangouts, Microsoft Teams, Blackboard, Zoom, Skype for Business, Cisco Webex, Avaya Spaces, BlueJeans and Slack on Its fixed and mobile network in collaboration with the TRA. These are part of a bundle of Initiatives to support the education sector, ensuring a smooth functioning of remote learning processes,” Etisalat said in a statement to the press.

Etisalat said that it remains committed to delivering the digital tolls and services that teachers and students require to provide the highest standards of online learning in the country.

A recent study revealed Etisalat to be the Middle East and North Africa’s most valuable telecommunications brand. The company has pledged to keep investing in the next generation network technology that keeps it on the cusp of global innovation.
