O3b Networks has announced an agreement to continue providing high-throughput, low-latency connectivity over its satellite-enabled network to Timor Telecom (TT). The Timorese operator first started using the O3b network in 2014 and has upgraded capacity several times to meet growing data demands and to launch mobile data services. The O3b connection provides TT with fibre-equivalent internet performance, which has allowed it to provide a differentiated 3G service to customers across the country. The operator receives more than 1Gbps of international connectivity from O3b, delivered to two sites in Dilli and Baucau.
‘The quality of experience has dramatically increased for TT’s subscribers since we went live over O3b,’ said the operator’s CEO Manuel Capitao Amaro, adding: ‘Our customers benefit from the game-changing impact of faster and better quality internet connections coupled with the high reliability we’ve been able to achieve, knowing they can count on their TT connection when they need it most.’
