The TRA thanked Etisalat and Du for this initiative.

Etisalat and du will provide free internet data via mobile phones to families who don't have internet at home.

"In coordination between the Ministry of Education and the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA), Etisalat and du will provide mobile internet for families who have no home internet to enable distance learning," said a statement on Wednesday.

TRA announced that it has coordinated with service providers to provide free internet data via mobile phone to families with no home internet services, in order to facilitate their access to a distance learning service launched by the Ministry of Education with the support of Etisalat and Du.

Accordingly, the two national companies will provide a package of data needed to access the distance learning feature for families without home internet, free of charge.

TRA thanked Etisalat and Du for this initiative, which confirms their efforts to actively contribute to implementing the leadership directives and the success of the distance learning initiative launched by the Ministry of Education.
