Timor Telecom Renews and Expands with O3b Networks, Continues Mobile and Broadband Advancements


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.”

“Timor Telecom has worked closely with O3b to deploy a diversified 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 to continue making enormous strides in their service offerings to an increasing number of customers in the Timor-Leste market.”
