Timor-Leste operator sets the standard for network performance and
reliability with O3b’s high availability and performance

ST. HELIER, Jersey, Channel Islands–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#APAC–O3b Networks today announced an agreement with Timor Telecom, the
leading Timor-Leste Full Service Operator (FSP), to continue providing
high-throughput, low-latency connectivity over O3b’s innovative
satellite-enabled network. Timor Telecom first started using the O3b
network in 2014, and has upgraded capacity several times to keep up with
soaring data demand and launch mobile data services.

The O3b connection provides Timor Telecom with fiber-equivalent internet
performance, which has allowed the company to provide a differentiated
3G service to customers across the country. The company leads the nation
in telecommunications innovations, and will continue to use the O3b link
to deliver ever-improving Quality of Experience (QoE) for subscribers.

Timor Telecom receives more than 1Gbps of international connectivity
from O3b, delivered to 2 sites, one in Dilli and another in Baucau. With
the redundant terminal sites, Timor Telecom has taken full advantage of
O3b’s expertise in network architecture. The result is Timor Telecom
boasting excellent service reliability with network availability
exceeding 99.9%.

“The quality of experience has dramatically increased for Timor
Telecom’s subscribers since we went live over O3b,” said Manuel Capitao
Amaro, CEO of Timor Telecom. “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 Timor Telecom connection when they need it most.”

Software Defined Network solution, developing a world-class network
architecture here in Timor-Leste,” said Imran Malik, VP, Asia Pacific of
O3b Networks. “Bringing advanced mobile internet to Timor is a huge
achievement, and O3b Networks is thrilled to be enabling Timor Telecom
