KOTA BHARU, 1 NOVEMBER 2021 – The Minister of Communications and Multimedia, YB Tan Sri Datuk Seri Panglima Haji Annuar Bin Haji Musa launched the new Learn From Home free data programme yesterday for students in higher education nationwide at Politeknik Kota Bharu.
The Learn From Home free data programme is part of an educational initiative from YTL Foundation in collaboration with YES and FrogAsia to provide students with free smartphones, YES data plans and learning resources to enable them to stay connected and studying during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The higher education students are able to start the new academic year with free 7GB data per month from YES until 30 September 2022. Under this programme, students and faculty staff from the institutions of higher education involved can apply for the free YES SIM cards online and have them delivered directly to them. Universities and polytechnics participating in the programme will provide assistance to their students to apply for this special plan.
In addition to the free data under the Learn From Home programme, students can top up additional data under the extremely attractive YES Kasi Up plans or they can also enjoy 20GB of data for 90 days for only RM30 per month, with an additional 1GB of data per day for productivity apps under the Pakej YES Remaja Keluarga. This Pakej YES Remaja Keluarga Malaysia was also launched by YB Tan Sri Datuk Seri Panglima Haji Annuar Bin Haji Musa, Minister of Communications and Multimedia, at the event yesterday.
Minister of Communications and Multimedia YB Tan Sri Datuk Seri Panglima Haji Annuar Bin Haji Musa said, “This idea which was a culmination of my discussion with YTL and the Pakej YES Remaja Keluarga Malaysia will provide an affordable data plan which will enable them to conduct their online classes in line with their needs. The free data plan of 7GB through the 4G Learn From Home network will benefit these students not only in their education but also their other daily needs. I hope to see more such joint efforts between telcos and educational institutions as the younger people are our future and it will never be a waste investing in our future leaders.”
