IEC Telecom Unveils Its Latest Humanitarian Missions’ Satellite Solutions at DIHAD 2018

2 March, 2018

IEC Telecom Group and Al Yah Satellite Communications Company (Yahsat) will unveil their latest humanitarian mission’s satellite solution at the upcoming 15th edition of Dubai International Humanitarian Aid and Development Conference and Exhibition (DIHAD).

 

Internet services have the power to transform lives, offering life-enhancing financial, health, and many other services, as well as the simple ability to express oneself to one’s family and community. Yet, 46% of the world’s population in emerging markets lack access to these services, and even those who have access often do not adopt services, because of constraints arising from limited affordability and value.

 

Roughly four billion people globally have yet to adopt the Internet. And while young people are at the forefront of Internet adoption, nearly 9 out of 10 young individuals who live in Africa or Asia and the Pacific don’t use the Internet (compared to 94% of young people in the developed countries and 67% in developing countries).

 

The latest solution by IEC Telecom and Yahsat will help NGOs to keep remote settlements connected. To learn more, visit our stand D-16 next week from 5-7 March in Rashid Hall, DWTC.
