Kuala Lumpur, 4 February 2021 – Kementerian Sains, Teknologi dan Inovasi Sabah (KSTI), Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) and MEASAT Global Berhad (“MEASAT”) have successfully deployed CONNECTme NOW, community broadband via satellite to the villagers of Kampung Waluhu, Ranau, Sabah. The initiative arose following a recent incident involving several students who had to enter the forest and possibly encounter wild animals in their journey to get internet access for online learning in January 2021.
