Those that are unable to connect via broadband due to location issues, they will be connected using Very-small-aperture terminals (VSAT) – or satellite internet access – starting February 2021.

These are some of the things that MOE is outlining, such as the digitization policy to look at the infrastructure, applications available and ensure that comprehensive efforts are made. This will take some time because when Covid-19 happened, we didn’t expect that such a situation would occur. So at that time, we only use any available resources to ensure that students continue to follow their learning at home through various methods.
