Mobily plans discounted packages for remote learning

Friday 28 August 2020 | 10:36 CET | News
Saudi operator Mobily says it plans to launch cut-price packages for distance learning soon, available for mobile phones and fibre optics, to support pupils and teachers in light of the precautionary measures adopted to prevent the spread of Covid-19.  The unlimited education package offers unrestricted browsing on the Madrasati platform, in coordination with the government. The package will be available for a three-month subscription period for both postpaid and prepaid lines, and there will be a one-month 50 percent discount on fibre service offered to pupils and teachers.
